Nightclub & Bar Convention Coverage 2014

As I announced on my show last week, it is only 6 more weeks to the “Nightclub & Bar Convention) in Las Vegas (March 24-26, 2014).  Utah Channel 3 will be covering this show looking for the latest in technology in this ever so popular field.  This industry continues to embrace the latest and greatest technology.  As the economic recovery seems well underway, Bars and Nightclubs are continuing to enjoy strong growth as an inexpensive alternative to traditional vacations.  Our segment on “Ultra Lounges” in July 2011,  2012 & 2013 proved once again that our viewers my be “techies” but they also know how to have fun.

The coverage of the NBC show this year will complement our Northern California Wine Country series which will kick off again in June with the Channel 3 ten best wines you can’t buy in a store segment.  This is the third year running for this segment.  We will also be combing the local wine bottling scene in Utah in this same segment featuring intern Jaclyn at a bottling event.

As Utah become a little more “beverage” friendly, your Channel 3 crew continues to promote responsible drinking, a strong theme from our hosts at the Nightclub & Bar Convention.

Here is a little back ground on the show from the producers:

This is THE industry’s most important bar, nightclub, beverage, restaurant and hospitality event of the year!  The Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show is THE right place and THE right time to make connections and learn.  More than an event, it’s an experience you can’t afford to miss with 37,000+ industry professionals flocking to the entertainment capital of the world—Las Vegas!
