    We are possibly going to plan a Vegas trip sometime between November 5th - 20th.
    Does anyone know of any LARGE conventions or sporting events that we should avoid ?

    Thanks !! Any info is appreciated. :wave:

    My first trip to Vegas was in 2010, and I was there nov 29?-dec 3 and it was going on the whole time I was there, but it may vary year to year. But I am willing to bet people are there a week or 2 ahead of time to get ready for it

    Back in the day, (20+ years ago?) any Fall trip had to be checked against when the 'Comdex' was being held. I remember that you never...and I mean NEVER wanted to be in Vegas while Comdex was going on.
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    I'm there for SEMA every year. It's crowded, especially certain hotels like the Venetian where the AAPEX Show is at the Sands. Those Cowboys are in town some years during SEMA and sometimes not.

    If cigar smoke bothers you, stay away from Mirage Nov 8-10. That's the annual Cigar Afficianado "Big Smoke". I believe it's the largest gathering of cigar smokers at least west of the Mississippi...I'd love to go but having tough time getting off work to do so.

    Thanks Warpdrvr ....
    I think we'll try to avoid that, and the SEMA event, and go a week later.
