LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The World of Concrete has been getting plenty of publicity as the first major convention to hit Las Vegas in 2021, but more shows are starting to make news.

Major Hollywood studios have committed to this year’s CinemaCon show, scheduled Aug. 23-26 at Caesars Palace, according to a report in Variety.

Organizers said Walt Disney Studios, Universal Pictures, Paramount, Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures have committed to the show.

Variety also reports Focus Features, Lionsgate and MGM will be there.

In a normal year, about 5,000 people from 80 countries would attend the four-day show, but the spotlight is a lot broader because of the show’s star power.

Hollywood stars make appearances as studios announce upcoming releases, and Las Vegas gets a lot of screen time all across the country during the show.
