2021 Announcement | Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show

Important Message Regarding Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show 2021

November 30, 2020

For the past 15 years, the Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show has brought the sports merchandise industry together to connect, share ideas and discover the latest products and ways to cheer on the teams we love; our goal is always to support this extraordinary community.  Unfortunately, due to travel and government restrictions relating to  COVID-19,  we are cancelling our in-person event at the Las Vegas Convention Center, originally scheduled for January 20-22, 2021, in Las Vegas, NV.

Continued developments have made it impossible to effectively deliver the level of connection and discovery our community expects from the Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show.  This is due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including current government restrictions and limitations on large gatherings imposed in Nevada and other local government and public health authorities; the inability for a significant part of the Sports Licensing community to travel to the show due to travel restrictions and bans; and the various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees affecting attendees and participating companies.

While we are truly disappointed that we are unable to gather for this long-standing event, our team is committed to creating new ways for us to connect. We’ll keep you informed as details come together. Please look to your inboxes and follow us on social media for the latest.

We’re as eager as you are to connect on a human level and can’t wait to see you all again in Las Vegas in January 2022. Your safety and health are of paramount concern to us, and we thank you for your understanding as we all navigate through this challenging time.
