Las Vegas resorts and attractions joined together to show support of the Consumer Electronics Show with an orchestrated marquee display hours before the start of the annual show. CES, which has been held in Las Vegas for more than four decades, is being held virtually this year in light of the pandemic.
More than two dozen marquees along the famed Las Vegas Strip and downtown were lit with a “We miss you and can’t wait to welcome you back in 2022” message the evening of Jan. 10. Footage of the marquee displays will be shared with all CES attendees as part of programming opening day. Multiple resorts destination-wide delivered the message on their respective social media handles as well.
“CES is one of the largest and longest-standing conventions in the destination and we miss the show’s organizers and attendees greatly this year,” says Steve Hill, LVCVA president & CEO. “We wish them a successful virtual show and we are excited to welcome them back to Las Vegas with open arms next year.”
“The support and long-term partnership we have with Las Vegas is invaluable,” says CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro. “For decades the city’s hotels, workers and community have welcomed us with an outpouring of hospitality. CES looks forward to returning in 2022 and having a five-sense experience that includes the magic of Vegas.”
