I first met Julius Solaris, Boldpush, a consultancy and research company years ago on Twitter (now X). A few years later we met in person at an IMEX America in Las Vegas prior to both living in that city. At that time, he owned and ran Event Manager Blog, which included a private LinkedIn Group with over 350,000 members from around the world, where members interacted in multiple languages. (Yes, over 350,000 members!)

Las Vegas, this year’s destination for the UFI Congress is known as the World’s Entertainment Capital for a reason! For those delegates who wish to, there are a plethora (really!) of artists and shows to see. A quick look for the dates of Oct. 25-Nov. 6 is below.
The ARIA Resort & Casino is the headquarters hotel for the upcoming UFI Congress in Las Vegas, Nov. 1-4. Located in the center of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, the venue is part of MGM’s Luxury Meetings District, along with the Bellagio, Cosmopolitan, Nomad, Park MGM and Vdara. The District accommodates groups up to 10,000 attendees looking for a contained and innovative large group experience.
A couple of weeks ago, UFI’s Managing Director/CEO Kai Hattendorf asked me to write about summer internship opportunities in the US trade show business. I’m sorry to say I only found one: MGM Resorts International, and they begin the vetting/hiring process in December. Frankly, I was surprised!
The 90th UFI Global Congress lands on the shores on North America this November 1-4, to the oasis in the desert known as Las Vegas. This is the first time this event has been held in the US and there are some Vegas-sized things planned for delegates and sponsors.
