CLIOs Hit Vegas, Baby!


Is it the imagination or is every industry conference moving to Vegas? Hey, no complaints. Vegas is fun. Really fun. Yes, for its 50th outing, the CLIOs will be held in Las Vegas over the course of three days and will be broken into five distinct events.

The five distinct award shows are:

  • Moving Image Awards - recognizing Television/Cinema/Digital & Television/Cinema/Digital Technique mediums.
  • Emerging Media Awards - recognizing Content & Contact, Innovative Media, Interactive, and Integrated mediums.
  • Print & Radio Awards - recognizing Print, Radio, Direct Mail, Poster and Billboard mediums.
  • Design Awards - recognizing Design mediums.
  • Lifetime Achievement Awards - recognizing the outstanding and ongoing contribution of an individual who leads the industry forward.
Miami Beach is fun but seriously. It pales in comparison to Vegas. See you there.

Get your entries in. The Call for Entry deadline in January 23, 2009.

Vegas? Seriously? Vegas was cool when I was 22 years old.

No thank you.

I only go to the Clios because it's in Miami. Also it's great because there's only so many places people will go to hang out around Collins, so you can wander around and run into people from the show - in Vegas, not likely. Boo. Count me out.

Vegas is fun, once every 3-4 years.

Nothing like a bunch of pretentious advertising people, I'm one of them, surrounded by 64 year old women playing slots and Joey Jersey pretending he's in Swingers at the $1 minimum black jack table.

I'm sure they are going for the "if the show sucks, at least there's 1000 other things to do" factor. I agree with the every 3-4 years comment, because it's almost a new Strip every 3-4 years.
