FlightSimExpo Update

Join more than 35 exhibitors at FlightSimExpo: June 9-10, 2018 at the Flamingo Las Vegas Resort.

9-Apr-2018

The show will be attended by the biggest names in the flight simulation industry including Aerosoft, FlyJSim, Infinite Flight, Laminar Research, NATCA, Navigraph, Orbx, PilotEdge, PILOT’S, Prepar3D, REX Game Studios, simMarket, and many more.

Exhibitors will display the latest simulation and aviation technology in the 15,000 square ft exhibit hall and visitors will be able to try out new products from developers across the industry, meet air traffic controllers, and learn about local non-profit aviation organizations. The event will run all day Saturday, June 9 and until 3pm on Sunday, June 10.

Alongside more than 35 exhibitors, the conference will feature seminars and presentations from a panel of Twitch streamers, PMDG’s Robert S. Randazzo, CFII Jason Miller, Captain John Cox, home cockpit builders Matt Ford and Tom Gauvin, and more. The event will open with the New Release Announcement Seminar, a 30-minute overview of the latest developments in simulation. Following this session, seminars and panel discussions take place all weekend.

In ‘The Squawkbox’, visitors can meet and interact with several flight simulation personalities and experts in a one-on-one format. Ask questions and learn more about freeware (David Waldron), multiplayer and shared cockpit (Dave Hodges), avionics (Ken Smith), scenery design (three developers from Orbx), and more. The Squawkbox will be on the main exhibit floor, just next to the conference room.

Co-founder of FlightSimExpo, Evan Reiter explained: “There’s something for everyone at this event,” said. “Attendees can meet developers, engage in learning-oriented seminars, or chat one-on-one with experts in The Squawkbox. And if you have a co-pilot with you who perhaps isn’t all that into simulation, there’s world-class shopping, dining, attractions, and of course gaming to keep anyone entertained.”

Visitors will have the opportunity to win prizes donated by FlyTampa, FS2Crew, Genovation, PilotsEYE, Stay Level Avionix, Thrustmaster, and X-Crafts. But there’s no need to wait until then: FlightSimExpo High Five will give anyone the chance to win a tour of Nellis Air Force Base, hotel upgrades, and other prizes during the week of April 9. Like FlightSimExpo on Facebook and look for the first chance to win at 8:00am PT (1500z) April 9.
