The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority will implode on New Years Eve in 2020.
A virtual event to be broadcast live on the LVCVA website, Facebook page and YouTube channel features a live DJ, a countdown to 2021, an explosive real-time demolition of a 2020 sign and a competition for people to win a trip to Las Vegas.
“We know celebrating New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas is a bucket list and a long tradition,” said Steve Hill, LVCVA president and CEO. “While many visitors from across the country and around the world cannot come to us in person to turn the calendar, this virtual event allows us to share our excitement and excitement with Vegas fans both near and far when we look to a brighter year 2021. ”
A press release from the organization states that if a countdown clock goes to zero shortly before midnight on December 31, there will be a burst of color and sound when 2020 is blown away and the heralding in 2021. A 2020 sign will light up – and then blown up. A Tao Group Hospitality DJ starts the New Year with a celebration of the music when a massive LED-lit 2021 sign is revealed along with a burst of confetti, streamers, and fireworks.
The virtual event is expected to last 12 to 15 minutes.
A 15-second teaser video to the music of “The Blue Danube Waltz” shows parts of implosion videos from New Frontier, Stardust, Landmark and Dunes with the text “out with the old, in with a boom, we” For 2020 it’s the same. “
The LVCVA board received a preview of the video during its December meeting Tuesday.
