  1. Shark Tank at JCK has a new name and better location.

JCK Think Tank allows technology vendors to pitch an innovative product or service to a panel of industry judges and a room of peers at JCK Las Vegas.

Events this exciting were made to be on the show floor, so be sure to pencil in stopping by the New Showcase Stage on June 5 to see who has what it takes.

  1. Who needs a runway anyway? Or…if you don’t throw a welcome party, how do people actually know you were there?

JCK Las Vegas 2016 is going big for its first-ever Welcome and Kick-Off Party on June 2, the day before the madness begins. It will be an unconventional fashion show sponsored by Tous, so grab a cocktail and get your camera ready for an insider snapshot into the hottest designs from Tous up close and personal while models roam the party.  Did you think we wouldn’t provide you with a pump-up song?
