Welcome Reception on exhibition floor at Mandalay Bay Resort
Brazil World Cup 2014 Themed
Take advantage of the vital networking opportunities provided at this Welcome Reception, where delegates can enjoy demonstrations in the exhibition for the first time during the event, as well as drinks and entertainment inspired by this year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil, which like FTE Global brings together nationalities from all over the world in one place to showcase the best of the best. Entertainment will include a penalty shootout, where a nominated representative from each country in attendance at the show will participate in a ‘sudden death knockout’ competition. The winning penalty taker, and their fellow country representatives, will be immortalised in a trophy lifting ceremony at the end of the evening!
Once more, the Welcome Reception will begin early so participants have more scope to network outside of the official event proceedings.

Las Vegas McCarran International Airport Tour
The Las Vegas McCarran International Airport tour is a unique opportunity to experience firsthand the unparalleled facilities of this forward-thinking airport. Focusing on the trailblazing new Terminal 3, the tour begins curbside, where delegates will explore the check-in areas – taking in everything from sophisticated digital signage to the utilisation of kiosks and advanced self-bag tagging facilities – and will be given an understanding of check-in area layout and flexibility of design in the terminal space. From departures, the tour moves airside, where a look at the digital signage at the gates, the automated self-boarding system and the activity on ramps will give a fascinating insight into the innovation behind McCarran International Airport’s operations.
