Strong Attendance Expected for KnowledgeFest™ Las Vegas

Strong Attendance Expected for KnowledgeFest™Las Vegas
State of Nevada joins New York and California removing the mask mandate
NORTH ANDOVER, MASS., February 11, 2022 — The Mobile Electronics Association (MEA)reported today that advance registrations indicate a much higher than expected attendance at next week’s KnowledgeFest Vegas event. This is the first KnowledgeFest to be held in Las Vegas which will now host the Mobile Electronics Industry Awards, as retailers and vendors are gearing up and looking forward to meeting in person again.
Yesterday, Nevada’s governor announced that masks are no longer required for in-door events, joining New York, California, and most of the rest of the country, who have either removed the requirement or announced a plan to in the near future. The Nevada announcement is effective immediately and supported by the South Point Hotel and Casino. This will allow KnowledgeFest Vegas attendees to have the option to wear a mask or not.
“These are certainly unique times where companies recognize that business continues and the mobile electronics industry needs to come together to support them” stated Chris Cook, MEA President. “The show must go on and the record number of attendees are being heard loud and clear”. MEA now projects attendance to reach 1,500 which would be a record for a first-year new venue. Previous KnowledgeFest locations included Dallas, Indianapolis, Long Beach, and Orlando.  

KnowledgeFest Vegas will be a three-day event featuring hundreds of hours of education utilizing three workshop tracks (Owner & Manager -- Sales & Marketing -- Technician & Fabricator), manufacturer specific training sessions, and over 80,000 square feet of exhibitor space with more than 50 booths, capped off with an evening of celebration and entertainment as the industry recognizes the best-of-the-best at the Mobile Electronics Industry Awards.


Discount rooms are still available at the beautiful South Point Hotel and Casino (located on the Las Vegas Boulevard about five miles from Mandalay Bay) and online advance registration, along with schedule and details, is available at
