DEMA Show and F1 race dates clash

DEMA Show and F1 race dates clash

Posted in:

DEMA Show 2024 and Formula 1 Grand Prix will take place in Las Vegas on partially overlapping dates. Will it be an issue?

During the DEMA Show in New Orleans, I encountered a dive industry colleague who appeared quite distressed. He had just discovered that a Formula One race was scheduled concurrently with the next DEMA Show in Las Vegas. His concern was that securing a hotel would be impossible, as he believed everything was already booked. At that moment, I was somewhat sceptical of his concern. 

Considering the event was still a year away and Las Vegas, known for its abundance of hotel rooms and capacity to host multiple large-scale events simultaneously, it seemed unlikely that accommodations would be completely unavailable. Nevertheless, this topic had already sparked considerable discussion on the show floor, prompting DEMA to address these concerns through press releases and newsletters. 


DEMA has proactively addressed any concerns regarding the overlap of the DEMA Show 2024 and the Formula One Grand Prix in Las Vegas. They have secured thousands of hotel rooms, with rates starting as low as US$129/night, ensuring ample availability and affordable options for attendees. 

The DEMA Show is scheduled for 19-22 November 2024, while the Grand Prix will occur from 21-23 November. Despite the overlap, DEMA's advance planning guarantees stable hotel rates at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel, with prices locked in at US$129-149 and US$199 per night, respectively.

Interestingly, the 2023 Formula One event in Las Vegas experienced lower-than-expected attendance, leading to a drop in hotel rates and ticket prices. This trend suggests that attendees of the DEMA Show 2024 might face even fewer issues regarding accommodation and enjoy the added vibrancy of the Formula One event. 

DEMA advises participants to book in the official hotel block early in 2024 and arrange flights promptly to make the most of their experience.

  • Book in the official hotel block as soon as it becomes available in the first quarter of 2024.
  • Book flights as soon as possible.
  • Enjoy the additional excitement Formula One brings to the Las Vegas.
