The official Star Trek Las Vegas convention is the biggest annual gathering of Trek fans and celebrities. In recent years it has been held around the first week of August at the Rio Hotel. However, due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, that has changed.
STLV on December 9 at Caesars Forum Conference Center
Today, Creation Entertainment made it official, announcing that the Star Trek Las Vegas Convention is moving to a new date and a new venue. The official announcement reads in part:
During these challenging times, the safety of our Star Trek convention attendees, celebrities and staff is of the utmost importance to us. We have continued to monitor the local, federal and international protocols concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we had hoped that our Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas could take place in August, due to the unprecedented circumstances, we must postpone and move to a new venue.
The new plan is for STLV to be held from December 9-13, 2020. The 19th annual con will be held at Caesars Forum Conference Center Las Vegas, the brand-new, state-of-the-art $375 million facility which is located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Conference Center features direct access to the new host hotel, the newly renovated Harrah’s Las Vegas.
Celebrity guests are still being finalized for the new date, but William Shatner, Walter Koenig, Kelsey Grammer, and more have been confirmed. Creation is currently working on more confirmations. Updates on the guest list can be found on the Creation STLV site.
Those with reserved tickets and seating will have those reservations transferred to the new date and updated tickets will be sent by email. Creation advises those who were planning to attend the August convention to cancel their hotel reservations at this time. They will be providing revised booking links shortly to re-book hotel reservations for the new date.
Those who want refunds are advised to email firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for refund requests for the convention is June 19, 2020
Currently, new admission passes and tickets have been temporarily taken off sale, but Creation promises they will be available soon.
TrekMovie will provide updates on this developing story.
