FlightSimExpo 2024 Saved by The Rio Las Vegas ?

FlightSimExpo 2024 faced a major setback with the unexpected closure of its contracted venue, Tropicana Las Vegas, announced on January 29, 2024. The closure prompted the event organizers to swiftly initiate a search for an alternative venue for the planned dates of June 21-23, 2024. In an effort to involve the community, a survey was conducted to gather feedback on potential replacement venues, with the majority of respondents favoring The Rio, as revealed in the update on February 17, 2024.

In subsequent updates, the organizers detailed their progress in securing a new venue, emphasizing the unique challenges in negotiating contracts for a specialized event like FlightSimExpo. Despite the tight timeline, the team worked diligently to receive proposals from three potential venues in Las Vegas. The Tropicana, displaying professionalism, actively assisted in the search for an alternative, reflecting the supportive spirit within the Las Vegas community.

The latest update on February 17, 2024, indicates positive developments with ongoing negotiations and the potential for FlightSimExpo 2024 to be hosted at The Rio, alleviating concerns for attendees and allowing for a seamless transition of reservations from Tropicana to the new venue.
