MAU Vegas 2020 – Notice of Event Cancellation
June 10, 2020
It is with great sadness that we are reaching out today to share that the September edition of MAU Vegas, scheduled to take place September 1 – 2, 2020 at MGM Grand Las Vegas is now canceled.
In light of both governmental direction and general public health advisories, a face-to-face event is not possible at this time with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the government issued State of Emergency in Las Vegas.
Although we won’t see you in person in September, we are committed to providing you valuable content and connections to hold you over until MAU Vegas 2021, May 4 – 6 at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas.
Stay tuned for more information soon.
Thank you again for your patience, understanding and support. We are truly disappointed that we cannot be together in 2020 but look forward to once again bringing this community together next May.
We are so grateful to be part of this innovative, collaborative and supportive industry—thank you for being part of it too!

The Impact of Face-to-Face Events
Our focus as tradeshow and enthusiast event organizer is to build strong, long-lasting partnerships with industry stakeholders with the understanding that together we create a successful, productive marketplace. Now more than ever, our focus turns to our customers as we have an obligation to lead the way for our industry to get back to business and provide you with a safe and productive environment to do business.
Additionally, the events business has a direct impact on economies and job creation. The events business brings revenue to local economies as attendees spend money traveling to the location, filling hotel rooms, utilizing local transportation options (taxis, ride sharing, car services, public transportation), and filling local establishments like restaurants and bars.
What if the live event cannot take place
While we believe in the power of face-to-face events and what they deliver; our focus is on what our customers need now and in the future and how we can deliver the experience to best meet those needs. Our teams are talking with our customers and working on a variety of opportunities to meet the needs of each market we serve including – virtual experiences, webinars, matchmaking of buyers and seller and industry roundtables, virtual product demonstrations, hosted buyer niche events and more.
Addressing health and safety
Our team is following the government guidelines issued by the CDC and state and local officials with regards to the ongoing situation of the coronavirus/COVID-19. Ensuring the safety of all exhibitors, attendees and staff at our events is our top priority.
We understand that ensuring exhibitors and attendees feel safe returning to events will be a critical first step in delivering an exceptional experience for you. We are working with SISO and AEO, two leading event organizer associations to further create new high standards in safety in events.
We are working as a collective industry to enable events and trade shows to open safely by following essential safety guidelines that adhere to the best medically backed scientific practices for the safety and well-being of attendees, once stay at home orders are lifted. Additionally we are working with our travel partners, venues, hotels and the Convention & Visitors Bureaus in the cities our events operate in to protect your health and provide you with a safe and productive environment for you to conduct business.
Our precautionary measures begin in our event planning stage and continue through your arrival at the event and a post-event review to protect all of our customers with the support of our partners and contractors including:
I. Ensure personnel and personal safety
II. Enablement of physical distancing
III. Increase health and safety measures
IV. Implement crowd control
V. Communication of policies and changes
We want to help you get back to business through the support of live events while still ensuring you can fully enjoy the face-to-face experience that allows you to feel safe and have a peace of mind.
