What to Expect at Nightclub & Bar Show 2021

Nightclub & Bar Show is bringing the same innovation and expertise you've come to expect, plus a few new surprises to Las Vegas, this June! (Suyashdixit / Pixabay)

The country is slowly opening up again, and we’re excited to be the first in-person industry event after a very long year away. This year’s Nightclub & Bar Show is going to bring all the excitement you’ve come to expect in a Covid-safe environment, and you can find more about our safety protocols here.

As Chef Brian Duffy said, “Things may seem a little different this year, but it is even more important than ever to gain the tools and advice needed to be fully prepared for the reopening of the industry.” Different means wider aisles, smaller conference sessions and more chances to engage with thought-leaders from around the country than ever before.

Early Bird tickets are on sale now, so grab them before they’re gone and get access to another legendary week of workshops, conferences, exhibitions and industry innovations for just $99. The Nightclub & Bar Show is happening at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 28-30 2021.


2020 was hard, there’s no way to sugarcoat that. But we’re not looking back, we’re looking forward. That’s why this year’s conference program is all about getting operators back on their feet, keeping doors open, and boosting that bottom line. All of our sessions are led by industry pros who have been in the weeds and found their way through to the other side. They’ve been where you are, and they know how to come out stronger- and they want to help you do the same. Whether you want to know how make the most of your government assistance, build a marketing plan that actually drives revenue, or reduce your taxes (legally) – we’ve got you covered. Register for a VIP Pass or Conference Pass to get access to the entire conference and keep an eye on our conference page for updates.

For all the latest creations, cutting-edge technology, trends and industry innovations – head to our brand-new NXT area (pronounced ‘next’). This is the ultimate place to discover what’s coming before your competitors do. Learn about new products and get up close and personal with the brands that are about to take over. You’ll find games, entertainment and a celebrity or two here throughout the show, so it’s worth stopping by throughout the expo so you don’t miss out!

F&B Innovation Center

Chef Brian Duffy and his all-star team of chefs are back in the Food & Beverage Innovation Center this year. Open to all attendees, the F&B Innovation Center is a hub of culinary excellence where operators can go to watch expert demonstrations, learn about the latest food service equipment and find new ways to enhance your menus and increase revenue. You can check out all of the chefs here, and stop by the F&B Innovation Center for exclusive meet & greets and world-class food.
