Details of the largest event in Las Vegas history revealed

by Bruce W. Web Designer
Details of the biggest event in Las Vegas history with a number of "super" that  was mentioned in this corner about half a year ago were announced this Tuesday by the organizer and the tourist office. The event will be held for three days , April 23, 24 and 25, 2020 . And the name of the event is NFL draft .

It is expected that the situation in Las Vegas will change drastically due to traffic restrictions during the preparation period as well as during the holding period, so it may or may not be of interest to this event. Readers may not be particularly interested), but be wary of anyone planning a Las Vegas trip at this time.

Although it overlaps with the article six months ago, if I reiterate about this event again, the term "draft" here is basically the same as the draft meeting in Japan .

In other words, in Japan, this word is often used for ceremonies in which professional baseball teams select new players by lottery or other methods, but this NFL draft is similar to that, American football professional league NFL It will be a ceremony for each team to select a new player.

So why did the draft conference become a big event? It's more of a marketing feat on the side of the organizer, NFL. The NFL's ability to turn a non-game draft into a national event is tremendous, and is said to be one of the largest sports-related performances in the United States, alongside the Super Bowl (the NFL annual championship). I have.

By the way, since the Super Bowl has a limited number of seats in the stadium, the number of participants is at most about 100,000 (it seems to be 100 million units including TV viewers), but the number of participants in this draft is 600,000. I 'm afraid because it's a person (a record of holding Nashville, Tennessee in 2019). (It is a number announced by the NFL side, and the definition of "participant" and counting method are unknown)

The content and purpose of the event is simple. Basically, it is all about “who will choose which team” , but we will show the scene of the selection and broadcast it on a national network for 3 days. As usual, the nominations for the first round on the first day, the second and third rounds on the second day, and the fourth to seventh rounds on the third day are common. It is a schedule.

According to such a schedule, not only the players and family members to be selected, but also the fans of each team will be delighted. It goes without saying that many attractions, talk shows with old players, autograph sessions, and commemorative photo sessions are planned, and there are various innovations that participants can enjoy without getting tired.

It is common for venues to be located in multiple locations in the host city rather than in a single location, and as a result, a wide area is closed , which is an annual pattern.

At this Las Vegas event, it was undecided as to the extent of traffic regulations and the location of the venue, so various speculations were flying around, but this is finally decided and it has been announced.

There are two major venues that we found in this announcement. One is the lake in the front yard of the Bellagio Hotel . A red carpet stage will be set up on the lake, and players and their families will head to the stage by boat.

By the way, this lake is the venue of the fountain show which can be said to be a representative attraction of Las Vegas , and during the preparation and preparation period of the NFL draft, the fountain show may be canceled or changed in some way, so expect this show Those planning a Vegas trip need to be careful.

The other venue is the Caesars Forum, which has just been completed in an empty space on the east side of the world's largest Ferris wheel "High Roller" .  Since this is not on the water, a larger stage will be set up and will be a central venue for the entire NFL draft.

Regarding traffic regulations, which are worrisome, the sections will be closed because the selected players will be riding open cars at these two venues. If the range is indicated by a specific hotel name, traffic in front of the Bellagio, Paris, Bally's, Caesars Palace, Cromwell, Flamingo and Westin hotels will be subject to traffic restrictions.

During the event period, from 2:00 am to 8:00 am on the first day, all traffic will be closed except the hours from 2:00 am to 7:00 am on the second and third days. Be careful when staying at a hotel.

Traffic restrictions are not limited to the duration of the event. There is also a plan to set up a stage on the lake and a big arch at the intersection of the Strip Boulevard and Flamingo Street.From April 8 for the lake and April 13 for the arch, there will be some traffic restrictions for each construction Since it is planned, guests at neighboring hotels are likely to be inconvenienced even before the event.

We already mentioned that 600,000 people attended the event last year, but it is expected that it will exceed this year. Because the capacity of the accommodation is much larger than other cities and the Raiders have decided to relocate to Las Vegas, it is expected to be more exciting than usual. (That said, Las Vegas has about 150,000 rooms at hotels. Even if two people stay in one room, it is 300,000, so local people and day visitors are also expected to participate.)

Raiders The team was based in Auckland (suburb of San Francisco) until last season, and has decided to relocate to Las Vegas from the season starting in the fall of 2020. , Mandalay Bay Hotel is proceeding in a vacant lot on the west side.

(Aresian is an airline company with Las Vegas International Airport as the hub airport, and has acquired the naming right for the stadium.)

That's why the story has been lengthened, but I think it is better for general tourists to avoid visiting Las Vegas during this period because accommodation costs are soaring and congestion is inevitable. Needless to say, it is a must-see event for NFL fans.
