With two showcasing opportunities in Reno, there's never been a better way to demonstrate your value to industry decision makers. Perform on-stage in Reno as part of Monday night's Live Entertainment Showcase, or gain exposure throughout convention by being part of our new Video Showcase Gallery; perfect for strolling acts, children's entertainers, and even concessionaires!

The Live Entertainment Showcase is your 15-minute audition for fair entertainment buyers. This traditional showcase is receiving a REMIX in Reno as we bring you one night of dedicated showcase combined with the ever-popular WFA President's Reception. With this being the only night of Showcase and no conflicting programming, everyone will be in one room to see what you've got!

Take the Stage

We're REMIX-ing the way we Showcase our members' talents, using the latest technology to ensure every act and vendor has the opportunity to show buyers exactly how they operate at fairtime. Using Augmented Reality, the Video Showcase Gallery allows you to demonstrate to buyers how your act or booth really looks -and sounds- at a fair, showing actual fairgoers loving engaging with you!
