Sports, Inc. Leaving Las Vegas in 2024


After years at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Leaving Las Vegas unfortunately now can be the official movie of the Sports, Inc. buying group. That’s because with the high-priced Formula 1 race moving into the group’s traditional time slot the week of Thanksgiving – and bringing with it huge influx of international auto racing fans and the accompanying hotel and transportation crunch – Sports, Inc. will be moving its Fall Team Dealers Show beginning next year.

The schedule calls for the show to relocate to Phoenix, AZ, in 2014 (November 18-20) and then to Tampa, FL, in 2025 (November 10-12).

"F1 week will create some challenges this year, but it also created new opportunities,” Max Pearson, Sports, Inc. director of Team Sports, tells Team Insight. “We recently finalized plans to host the Fall show in Phoenix in 2024 and in Tampa in 2025. Members are excited to see new venues after a long run with a good partner in Mandalay Bay.”

The 2023 Fall Team Dealers Show has already been moved up by one week, to November 14-16, to accommodate the F1 crowd.
