We’ve listed our top 4 reasons why you should be heading over to The Special Event this year - go on, have a scroll!

Back to the blog

O ur team will be exhibiting at The Special Event; the largest premier conference and tradeshow for event professionals, kicking off on March 11th and 12th at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. Wondering what you’ll get from it? We’ve given you 4 reasons to go to this year's show!

1. Get the lowdown with our team

Our team are exhibiting on booth #1846 and we want to talk about all things Current! Whether you spare 10 minutes before heading over to other great booths, or you set aside an hour (grab a seat and rest your legs), drop by and talk to one of our friendly team who can walk you through Current and answer any questions. Pick their brains about certain areas of the system, discuss what’s in the pipeline with our development team, and let them give you a sneak peek of our newest and coolest features.

green Inventory Check icon Inventory Check (new release): This super handy feature helps you see exactly what products you hold, any losses, and any discrepancies, ensuring your availability is always correct.

green Testing and Inspection icon Testing and Inspection (coming up): You’ll be able to log electrical tests for your inventory on a weekly, monthly or annual basis, recording what’s passed and failed. Plus, Current can flag products that are overdue a test when you’re prepping your jobs.

green mobile icon Mobile Scanning App (coming up): The perfect warehouse companion that will enable you to scan to allocate, prepare, check out and in using the in-built camera in your phone or tablet.

The team will also be covering the core features of our cloud-based software, to help event businesses like yourselves do what you do best - supply to and help put together unforgettable events. So come on over to booth #1846; share your ideas, state your business desires, or rave profusely about Current. Plus, you’ll get some free merch if you drop by…who can say no to that?

2. Leave the show inspired by your own industry

This year, The Special Event will be co-locating with Catersource; the world’s premier educational resource and expansive network for the catering and events industry, bringing the whole events and catering industry together for the 2-day show. The audience is broader, so you’ll find every type of event-based product and service at Mandalay Bay. It’s also great for mingling with other rental businesses in the same industry as you, whether they’re exhibiting or attending. Here are some exciting booths that we think you should check out there:

Cort Events: We’ve seen a lot of hype around Cort Events on booth #1817, who rent out all kinds of furniture for every event, from corporate to weddings. This year Cort Events go back in time with a speakeasy theme, including 1920’s furniture on show, fancy specialty cocktails, and other Gatsby-era fun. But you’ll have to visit to find out more - it’s all very hush-hush!

4. Vegas is the answer no matter the question!

If you’ve been to Vegas before, you’ll know it’s one of, if not the liveliest city in the entire 50 states (okay, this is subjective but it’s pretty fun for most).
