The Annual CTIA show which is just around the corner in Las Vegas. The CTIA is the organization for International Association for Wireless Telecommunication. The show that takes place around this time every year will be happening next week at the Las Vegas Convention Center and many are excited for what is to be unveiled.

Many companies and telecomm executives gather in Las Vegas and take part in this convention. It is very well organized and there are many parties and functions surrounding the event beyond the actual convention.

There are many different companies and events here. There are carrier companies from around the world, mainly North America but others as well. There are those that actually provide the products such as Apple, RIM, Nokia and many others of the sort. There are those that provide interesting software such as iPhone applications and others. There is just a lot to do and much to be seen.

The hotels have reservations that are already made and held away at special group rates for the people coming in especially for this show. Those blocks are set aside for people with codes that can access them. This is sure to be a busy week in Las Vegas so if you are planning to go for fun be sure to make reservations at all the places you like as early as possible because there maybe functions that get in the way of you getting in.

While Vegas may be a bit quieter this week for many reasons it is quite the lovely weekend to be in town as the weather looks like it will be nice and many will be striping off the extra layers to enjoy some of the sun. While it surely isn’t quite pool weather just yet it will be nice enough to leave the jackets at the hotel room and enjoy some fresh air as you walk the strip and take in all the different hotels and sights around you!

There are plenty of things to see during the day while the weather is accommodating. There are the beautiful Bellagio fountains, which are also stunning to see in the evening time as they light up and the music is played! If you are feeling a craving for chocolates and nuts and perhaps a great M&M experience then you should take a walk over to the M&M store where you will find the largest selection of M&M’s that your heart desires and you will also be able to spend a lot of time in there are there are so many parts to the store.

There is the M&M wall which offers the greatest selection of the candy that can ever be found as well as some great gifts that you can take home to share with others!

If you haven’t brought your clubs that nothing to worry about as golf attire and equipment is available for sale and for rent as well!

Las Vegas to Hold Oscar Parties this Weekend

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

While many celebrities will be in LA this weekend for the eighty second Academy awards the fans in Las Vegas will be having their own Oscar parties and celebrating the Oscars while watching on the big screens and maybe even making a few wagers in the sports books. There are many new movies that will be appreciated at this event and many Oscars will be given out to celebrate the great achievements of the actors and actresses that bring life to the Hollywood big screen that so many people like to watch.

There are several hotels that will be showing the Oscars in the sports books but if you are a true sports fan not into the Oscars please don’t worry as there are always screens in the sports book that focus on the latest sporting event as that is the primary interest of the sports books in Las Vegas anyway.

When there is a big event happening in LA, Vegas tends to quiet down a little as the two are close in proximity and many would visit one location versus the other. It is rumoured that several stars will actually be heading to Las Vegas the following weekend to enjoy some March Madness basketball and relax from the previous weeks anxiety of the Oscars and all the build up leading up to the big night that will leave so many people proud and others a little disappointed. But there is always next year and there are many more movies that are sure to hit the big screens in the meantime.
