ABC KIDS EXPO RETURNS TO LAS VEGAS
January 19, 2012
LAS VEGAS – The ABC Kids Expo is returning to Las Vegas for its 2013 trade show after what will be a two-year break from the city. The expo, a private trade show for the juvenile products industry, had been held in Las Vegas every year since launching in 2003, until it moved to Louisville in 2011.
“This is a perfect example of a Las Vegas success story,” said Chris Meyer, vice president of sales for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “ABC Kids Expo grew up with Las Vegas, and we are excited to have them returning to the destination. We are confident they will experience the same attendance boost that most shows rotating into Las Vegas do.”
The 8th annual trade show, which was held in October 2010 in Las Vegas experienced record-breaking attendance, drawing in more than 14,500 attendees. The expo generated more than $15.5 million in non-gaming economic impact.
San Antonio-based All Baby & Child, Inc. is the parent company and organizer of the ABC Kids Expo. The expo is not open to the general public.
