The 2014 Event Solutions Conference & Tradeshow invited event professionals from around the world to gather in Las Vegas for another exciting year of learning, networking, discovery and fun. More than 8,000 professionals from the catering and events industries came out to enjoy the spectacular education lineup and innovative products and services throughout the week.

For four busy days, attendees wandered the halls of the Paris Hotel and the Las Vegas Convention Center, gathering in educational sessions, attending events, discovering new products and ideas, and networking with like-minded professionals.
