2007 Las Vegas Expo Moved to June Date
May 10, 2006, 10:50 AM

The Billiard Congress of America board of directors unanimously voted to reset the dates of the International Billiard & Home Recreation Expo. The 2007 event will be held June 21-23 at The Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

The swift course of action was a result of feedback from the recently concluded 2006 Expo, held last month in Houston, which indicated that a majority of BCA members both exhibitors and non-exhibitors preferred Las Vegas as a location for the show and that the show be held at a later date.

"In our first meeting after the Expo, we felt it necessary to determine the cause for the light turnout in Houston," stated Trade Show Committee Chairman Ivan Lee, "Once we had an indication that the major issues were the location and the date, we had a clear path to follow."

The 2007 show was originally scheduled for April 12-14. The show venue will not change, scheduled to take place at the Sands Expo Center.

"We listened to our members and felt that this was the best move for the entire industry" stated BCA Board President Gregg Hovey. "Combined with a return to Las Vegas next year, we expect this shift to produce a very well-attended trade show."
