    MORE THAN 1,100 ATTENDEES TAKE PART IN FIRST-EVER FLIGHTSIMEXPO EVENT IN LAS VEGAS

    FlightSimExpo, North America’s community-driven flight simulation conference, brought attendees from 26 countries together in Las Vegas for a weekend of new product releases, engaging seminars, and hands-on exhibits.

    LAS VEGAS – June 19, 2018 – FlightSimExpo took place on June 9-10, 2018 in Las Vegas with a sold-out crowd of more than 1,100 simmers, pilots, air traffic controllers, and developers! The action-packed weekend featured 45 exhibitors, 21 speakers, and an endless set of activities before, during, and after the conference.

    “It is incredible to see how alive and well the simulation community is,” said Evan Reiter, co-founder of the event. “We are so grateful to the many people who helped make this event a reality. Volunteers, exhibitors, industry developers, and the community have come together to prove that simulation is more than a game: it’s a reality.”

    Event attendees included a mix of pilots (46%) and simulation enthusiasts. Some have been simming since the original Sub Logic days, while others experienced simulation for the first time. The all-ages event welcomed children, families, veterans, retirees, and enthusiasts from all walks of life.

    Event organizers encourage the community to visit their Media Partners’ websites for wrap-ups, videos, and highlights from the event: AirDailyX  FlightSim.Com, FSElite 
    , PCFlight.net, and The Sky Lounge. 

    Phil Coyle, co-founder of the conference, is pleased to share that plans have already begun for a 2019 event. “We have created a shortlist of destinations and dates based on exhibitor and developer feedback. In the coming days, we will be surveying our attendees and using that data to finalize a date and location for 2019. Las Vegas is on the list, along with several other major U.S. cities with good international access.”

    Fans of FlightSimExpo are encouraged to follow the event on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube to stay in touch. The 2019 date and location will be announced later this summer.

    “Thank you to the developers, simmers, and community who attended this event,” said Tom Guerrette, a volunteer with the conference. “We can’t wait to see you next year!”

    Can't open any videos on AirDailyX. The Sky Lounge has a nice On Approach video (if you like 4 flightsim geeks discussing FS for an hour) and the FSElite site has a very nice write-up. THanks for sharing this Chuck!
