A handful of weeks stand between eager scholars of the “live event” + festival industry and XLIVE 2016 – the unrivaled conference & expo covering all things music, tech, food, wine, beer, film, and eSports taking place in Las Vegas this December 5th – 7th. XLIVE 2016 boasts an impeccably-curated speaker lineup and is forecasting a Who’s Who of the festival community to be in attendance. Participants can expect interactive workshops, infinite topics + panels in which to gain invaluable knowledge, incredible exposure to industry goods & services, and networking opportunities galore.
Covering every facet, from rental equipment to ticket sales to host venues, over 80 benevolent sponsors will band together for XLIVE 2016 to represent the highest quality of live event services and in some cases, to present throughout the course of the convention. The world’s largest self-service ticketing platform, Eventbrite, is among the top sponsors in 2016 graciously donating time and resources. In addition to presiding as the platform for procuring your pass to XLIVE 2016, CEO of Eventbrite, Julia Hartz will be delivering one of the esteemed speaker keynotes over the course of the event. Following suit is Mike Pine, Vice President of Business Development for fellow sponsor Cinetransformer, who will discuss live event sponsorship activation strategies that make brands stand out during the “Noticing You, Noticing Me” panel. Also in attendance will be Greater Palm Springs CVB, Southern California’s premier live event and festival destination and home to world class events including the Coachella Music & Arts Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival, Modernism Week, and most recently, the history making Desert Trip.
Playing host to numerous XLIVE after-hour events during the course of the convention, two local establishments, MGM Resorts International and Hakkasan, are waiting to dazzle conference attendees with a taste of Las Vegas’ illustrious nightlife. Located directly in the famed MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, innovative nightclub Hakkasan will kick off XLIVE 2016 on Sunday December 4th, where anyone with an XLIVE badge will enjoy complimentary VIP entry and a dedicated area to mingle with other XLIVE guests and burn up the dancefloor.
