MAGIC, SEMA to remain in Las Vegas, LVCVA says

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Two trade shows that have called Las Vegas home in the past will remain in southern Nevada for several more years.

Both the Men's Apparel Guild in California (MAGIC) and the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) have committed to at least three more years with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

MAGIC extended its run through 2017. It draws about 80,000 attendees twice a year. SEMA will run through 2015, and attracts about 130,000 people to its annual show. Combined, the convention authority says these two shows pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy while they are here. Not to mention, the shows support about 2,000 jobs in Las Vegas.

LVCVA officials and senior executives from the two shows will meet Tuesday with the local community to discuss the impact the shows will have on our city. The presentation will start at 10:30 a.m. near the Boardroom and South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The LVCVA's mission focuses on attracting ever-increasing numbers of visitors to our area by promoting tourism, conventions, meetings and special events. Following the announcement from MAGIC and SEMA, the marketing organization could say mission accomplished.
