CinemaCon, the official convention of NATO (The National Association of Theatre Owners), announced today that the inaugural convention will take place March 28 – 31, 2011 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. From exclusive Hollywood product presentations, to must-see premiere feature screenings, to the biggest stars, producers and directors, CinemaCon will jumpstart the excitement and buzz that surrounds the summer season at the box office. The CinemaCon schedule will be packed with sponsored events, seminars, trade show, screenings, product presentations and a gala award show honoring the very best in the movie industry.

Following the highly successful 36-year run of ShoWest NATO will now run and oversee the largest annual gathering for the cinema industry, worldwide, starting with CinemaCon 2011. The new location at Caesars Palace will offer delegates a more modern and upscale conference facility. Major presentations from the Hollywood Studios will take place in The Colosseum, Caesars’ beautiful, 4,200 seat theatre. It is expected that, in its first year, CinemaCon will attract more than 5,000 industry members from all facets of the cinema world, most notably exhibition, distribution, equipment and concessions, marketing, advertising and that of social media.

Two of the convention’s major hires, overseeing the coordination and operation of CinemaCon, include respected convention executives Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director, and Andrew Sunshine, Director Sponsorships and Trade Show.

“This is an exciting, new beginning as NATO and its members take ownership of the largest and most important convention for the motion picture theatre industry,” noted NATO’s Convention Task Force Chairpersons Phil Harris and Bill Stembler. “We can’t wait to roll out the red carpet for the entire industry when CinemaCon premieres on March 28, 2011 at Caesars Palace.”
