LAS VEGAS TO HOST USBC CONVENTION IN 2019, 2020

April 17, 2018, bowl.com
ARLINGTON, Texas – The United States Bowling Congress Convention and Annual Meeting will have a two-year run in Las Vegas, as both the 2019 and 2020 events will be held at The Orleans.

The 2019 Convention will take place April 29 through May 2 and coincides with the USBC Open Championships taking place at the South Point Bowling Plaza. The Orleans also was the convention host in 2017 when the Open Championships visited Las Vegas.

In 2020, the USBC Convention will run from April 27-30. The Women’s Championships, which in 2016 became the first major USBC tournament held in the South Point Bowling Plaza, returns to the venue in 2020.

In its commitment to hold the annual convention in the same host city as a USBC Championships event, the USBC Board of Directors approved the convention site.

Both the 2019 and 2020 conventions also will run on a Monday-Thursday schedule. Feedback from convention delegates, mostly volunteers, has determined a weekday schedule is preferred, and helps with rates and accommodations for delegates and guests.

Delegates to the USBC Convention and Annual Meeting, representing USBC associations from across the country, take part in seminars, presentations of national awards and scholarships, and legislative sessions. Delegates hear updates from industry representatives and vote for national board members and on legislative proposals.

USBC also holds its Hall of Fame induction ceremony in conjunction with the convention.

The 2018 USBC Convention will take place at Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada, from April 23-26.
