Covid makes strange bedfellows…at least in the convention & trade show business.
Questex Hospitality Group had sponsored separate shows for nightclub and bar professionals and specialty tea professionals, but for 2021 combined the two audiences. Both the Nightclub & Bar Show and the World Tea Conference & Exposition could have waited until 2022, but Questex felt audiences for both audiences needed the assistance a trade show could provide. The two shows were then “co-located” at the Las Vegas Convention Center June 28-30. Admittedly, because of international flight restrictions, some attendees and a number of exhibitors could not participate, but the crowds continued to come nonetheless.
The attached video was taken during several hours spent at the shows giving viewers an idea of the kinds of happenings during the expo portion of the shows.
The hows also featured a number of educational offerings. In the evenings, options were available, as well, everything from cocktail gatherings and nightcub visits to a full-on Food Festival Welcome Party.
