More than 37,000 restaurant, bar, beverage and nightclub operators will flock to Las Vegas for this year’s Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show, to be held March 24 to 26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Featuring 600-plus exhibitors, this year’s Nightclub & Bar Show also invites pizza restaurant operators to join in the action—PMQ Pizza Magazine subscribers can show their Pizza Expo badge onsite at the Nightclub & Bar Show and receive an Expo Pass for $40, a savings of more than $100, and enjoy access to the full exhibit hall as well as other notable events.
Pizzeria operators can also register at ncbshow.com and use the code PMQPIZZA to get the discounted rate. They will receive admission to the exhibit hall on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 25 to 26, as well as the three keynote events and the Welcome Kickoff Party. Operators who want to enjoy the full Nightclub & Bar experience—including 70-plus educational seminars, nightly parties at top nightclubs, the “Shake It Up” Bartender Competition and the International Bikini Model Search—can choose between a number of attendee registration packages at ncbshow.com.
“The Nightclub & Bar Show works tirelessly each year to offer new and exciting topics of discussion, workshops and platforms for networking opportunities during our convention,” says Jon Taffer, president of Nightclub & Bar Media Group and host and executive producer of Spike TV’s Bar Rescue. “I look forward to being in the middle of the action once again this year with attendees and sponsors.”
With this year’s theme—“New Potential. New Profits. New Thinking.”—the event will focus on discovering innovative ways to increase profits while allowing attendees to meet face-to-face with leading suppliers and learn about new products, equipment and moneymaking strategies to boost profits and grow their restaurants.
Pizzeria operators will be especially interested in the Craft Brewers Pavilion, which showcases superior offerings in the segment. Exhibitors include Boston Beer Company, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Breckenridge Brewery, Black Diamond Brewing Company and more. Meanwhile, the Emerging Brands Pavilion highlights unique boutique and emerging brands, including Ubon’s Sauce, Thunder Vodka and Kirk & Sweeney Rum.
The Expo Pass also earns operators admission to the show’s three keynote addresses. The opening day’s keynote speaker, Gail Goodman, CEO of Constant Contact, will discuss word-of-mouth in a social world, engagement marketing and how you can use that engagement to drive social visibility. Taffer will serve as the closing day’s keynote speaker and will share strategies for eliciting the right emotional reactions from employees and customers. Exciting developments are in the works for the Tuesday keynote, NCB organizers say.
Expo Pass holders can also attend the event’s Welcome Kickoff Party at the Bud Light Hotel, located at the Hard Rock Paradise Beach Pool. For complete details about the 2014 Nightclub & Bar Show, visit ncbshow.com.
