BCA Member Free Admission to Trade Show Extended

Broomfield, Colorado - May 4, 2010 - The Billiard Congress of America (BCA) today announced it has extended the deadline for free BCA member registration for the 2010 International Billiard & Home Recreation Expo (BCA Expo) to June 1, 2010. This year's BCA Expo will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Wednesday, July 14 through Friday, July 16.  
With the intent of maximizing savings for industry retailers and room operators faced with economic adversity, the new registration deadline also extends to non-member pricing.  As such, non-member registration will remain at $25 through June 1, 2010.   
The BCA also recently announced reduced hotel rates at the Las Vegas Hilton, the official BCA Expo hotel.  Room rates now begin at $69 per night from July 7 - 12 and are as low as $89 per night beginning July 13.  With a recent $100 million redesign, the Las Vegas Hilton enables easy access to the 2010 Expo without the cost of taxis, parking or monorail tickets.  
In addition, the BCA has worked with the Las Vegas Hilton to create additional savings for BCA Expo attendees.  Upon check-in, BCA Expo Hilton guests will also receive discounts valued at over $150 for restaurants, entertainment and casino activities which can help ease the incidental costs of business travel.
"The BCA is committed to supporting the industry in reducing costs and increasing value for the 2010 BCA Expo," said BCA Chairman Ivan Lee.  "With more space already contracted for 2010 than last year's total, this year's event promises to reflect positive momentum for the industry for this first time in many years.   We've also contracted nearly 20 new exhibitors that will offer new and diverse products to our Expo participants."
