From April 23 – 26, 2012, the eyes and ears of the worldwide motion picture theatre industry will be focused on Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, as the second annual CinemaCon, the Official convention of NATO, takes flight. Having gotten off to a successful start in 2011, CinemaCon is the largest and most important annual gathering of cinema owners and operators from around the world.

Whether you work in Cinema Exhibition, Film Distribution or Production, or, in the Equipment or Concession fields, CinemaCon is where you should be come April 23rd. If you’re involved in Marketing, Advertising or the burgeoning field of Social Media Networking, CinemaCon is where you should be come April 23rd. And, should your field of expertise be in the design, construction or financing of movie theatres or the exciting world of digital cinema, then CinemaCon is where you definitely should be come April 23rd. If your business is the motion picture theatre business, or, if this is the industry in which your business needs to be, then CinemaCon is the place for you!

The CinemaCon schedule will be complete with studio presentations and screenings (showcasing exclusive footage for the cinema industry); sponsored food events and the most topical of seminars geared to all facets of the industry. CinemaCon will also feature the largest theatre industry trade show – featuring the latest, most important and innovative technological advances in theatre equipment, and, the newest, most delectable offerings from the concession world—everything you need to satisfy the demanding needs of today’s sophisticated moviegoer. And to conclude the week in grand style, The Coca-Cola Company will be host to the Annual CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards that will see top honors bestowed upon some of today’s most glamorous and talented stars and filmmakers.

And, given the dominant role played by the International Boxoffice today, for those professionals involved in the worldwide cinema industry, CinemaCon is delighted to be holding an International Day of programming just for you on Monday, April 23rd.

So, if it’s networking with peers old and new, being a part of exclusive studio presentations and screenings highlighting the upcoming summer slate of releases, catching up on what it takes to outfit and run a state-of-the art motion picture theatre, sitting down and talking with the key executives and decision makers from the nation’s theatres, or, listening to some of today’s top stars and filmmakers, then you won’t want to miss out on CinemaCon 2012.

Additional Info

Today’s moviegoer is savvy, discriminating and extremely knowledgeable. When it comes to selecting a theatre to see a respective film, that same moviegoer would rather drive the extra distance to ensure they are getting the ultimate, state-of-the-art presentation and theatrical experience possible. Today’s demanding moviegoer is looking for optimum picture and sound quality, theatre seats that provide great comfort, a ticketing system that is quick and efficient, a concession stand that offers a diverse array of food and beverage items and a theatre setting that provides the best amenities imaginable—all of which makes that moviegoing experience worth driving the extra distance. Today’s cinema owner is just as demanding and discriminating when it comes to the building of new theatres or the remodeling and maintenance of existing theatres. The theatre market is competitive and the stakes are high.

The CinemaCon Trade Show serves that competitive, high-stakes market. Giving cinema owners from all over the world the opportunity to experience the latest and most important advances in the world of theatre equipment and concession products, CinemaCon offers the world’s largest trade show geared specifically for the motion picture theatre owner. It is here that decision-making cinema owners and executives walk the aisles, keeping an eye out for new equipment, products and services that will help make theirs the “go-to” theatres.

If the motion picture theatre industry is in your business plans, then CinemaCon is where you must be in April, 2012. With more than 5000 industry professional expected to attend CinemaCon 2012, being a part of the Trade Show is essential for any company that serves the cinema industry.

With potential Trade Show Space of more than 500 booths and 12 premium suite locations, the CInemaCon Trade Show will be housed in the beautiful, new Conference Center of Caesars Palace. CinemaCon also offers Trade Show exhibitors private, complimentary meeting spaces off the bustle of the trade floor to meet clients, make pitches and close deals. Already, more than 90% of the 2012 Booth and Suite Space has been sold and we are projecting a sell-out come April, 2012. CinemaCon is delighted to have as its major trade show partners, two of the industry’s leading trade associations, ICTA (International Cinema Technology Association) and NAC (National Association of Concessionaires).
