2020 Star Trek Las Vegas Convention Cancelled


It now comes as no surprise that 2020’s last convention has been cancelled due to COVID-19. As Kevin Dilmore said last month the Vegas convention was 2020’s most likely remaining event to show the 2021 Hallmark Star Trek ornament previews. Kevin, if you’re reading, we would like to offer this site as a vehicle to announce Hallmark’s 2021 Star Trek ornaments.

Here is Creation Entertainment’s official announcement:

During this pandemic crisis, Creation Entertainment remains steadfast in keeping the health and safety of our attendees, celebrities and staff as our top priority. While we had hoped to present our Official Star Trek Convention on December 9-13, 2020, due to ongoing local, federal and international protocols, we are unable to do so.

We will be next returning again to our traditional time of year and will be back in Vegas on a new date: August 11-15, 2021 at the Rio All-Suites Resort Hotel and Casino, and its beautiful state-of-the-art convention center!

The year 2021 marks the 50th Anniversary of Creation Entertainment, the 55th Anniversary of Star Trek, the 20th Anniversary of our convention in Las Vegas and Gene Roddenberry’s 100th birthday year. It’s the perfect time to celebrate and no city is better than Las Vegas to do just that!

We are renaming the convention “Creation Entertainment Presents The 55-Year Mission Tour”. We’ll have over 100 celebrity guests as usual, multiple tracks of non-stop programming, contests, music, cosplay and surprises, plus partying galore. We’ll immerse our attendees into the positive and loving atmosphere with thousands of other fans, as we all celebrate Gene Roddenberry’s legacy. CBS is not an official partner of this event.

If you wish to hold your same reserved seat or general admission, you do not need to do anything. Your tickets and same seating will be transferred to the new 2021 date and updated tickets will be sent to you via the email address you used at the time of purchase within a few weeks. Your 2020 ticket will no longer be valid.

2020 Star Trek Las Vegas Moves to December

Official Announcement:


IMPORTANT UPDATE: June 5, 2020

The Official Star Trek Las Vegas Convention Moving to NEW DATE and VENUE!
Admission Passes and Tickets Have Been Temporarily Taken Off Sale But Will Be Back Soon!

During these challenging times, the safety of our Star Trek convention attendees, celebrities and staff is the utmost importance to us. We have continued to monitor the local, federal and international protocols concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we had hoped that our Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas could take place in August, due to the unprecedented circumstances, we must postpone and move to a new venue.

The 19th Annual Star Trek Convention’s NEW DATE is now December 9-13, 2020 and is beaming into Caesars Forum Conference Center Las Vegas, the brand-new state of the art, $375 million facility located in the heart of the famed Las Vegas Strip! Caesars Forum Conference Center features direct access to our new host hotel, the newly renovated Harrah’s Las Vegas! 

William Shatner, Walter Koenig, Kelsey Grammer and more guests have confirmed the new date, and we are currently working on more confirmations. Please check the website for updates!

If you wish to hold your same seat or general admission, as well as a la carte autograph and photo op tickets, you do not need to do anything. Your tickets and same seating will be transferred to the new date and updated tickets will be sent to you via the email address you used at the time of purchase within a few weeks. Your original ticket will no longer be valid.

Attendees must cancel their hotel reservations at this time. We will have revised booking links shortly so you can re-book your hotel reservations for the new date.

As for flight cancellations, many air carriers have amended their policies and procedures during this health crisis to accommodate customers. Please contact your airlines directly for information.

If you’d like a refund for the Star Trek Vegas Convention, please contact customer.service@creationent.com. The deadline for refund requests for the convention is June 19, 2020 (please include your invoice number and the convention name/city in your email).  If you do not request a refund by the deadline, your admission passes and a la carte photo op and autograph tickets will be transferred to the new date. Refunds will begin to be processed after the deadline date. Please allow up to 8 weeks from the deadline date for your request to be processed.

We appreciate your patience and continued support and look forward to seeing everyone in December!

Until we can all safely meet to celebrate all things Star Trek,
Your friends at Creation Entertainment

Star Trek Las Vegas Still Scheduled for August 

Even with the COVID-19 virus making its 2020 squeeze on the world, Star Trek Las Vegas still has plans on proceeding.  Creation Entertainment is getting pushback from fans as they continue to sell tickets for the August event.


Official announcement:

Dear fellow Star Trek fans:

We hope you have been staying safe and healthy during this challenging time. While Creation has been social distancing as a team, we are still working hard to make the upcoming Official Star Trek Convention a grand celebration of Gene Roddenberry’s legacy for a hopeful future.  The event is set for August 5-9, 2020 at The Rio All-Suites Resort and Casino in fabulous Las Vegas.

As we currently have 71 Star Trek celebrities attending, we are on our way to getting over 100 stars and will feature a non-stop five days of fun. Our top-tiered Gold Convention Admission Packages, the most upscale way to attend the entire convention, are nearly sold out and will be removed from sale by Monday, April 27.

We also only have a few Captain’s Chair Admission Packages still available and today we have put on sale Copper Convention Packages and General Admission Convention Packages. Preferred (Reserved) Single Day and General Admission Single Day Tickets will be coming soon.

As something to look forward to this summer, we can’t wait to spend another truly intergalactic time in Vegas!

Your devoted Trekker friends at Creation Entertainment

2019 Hallmark Star Trek Ornaments Revealed

IMG_5347

The Las Vegas Star Trek convention has brought us previews of 2019’s ornaments. These first images are courtesy of trekcore.com’s twitter feed.

First off is a Lt. Saru and Michael Burnham ornament.  The ornament captures a rather generic scene of the pair.

The second ornament is an Original Series classic. The Tribble will likely prove to be Hallmark’s ornament with the highest profit margin.

IMG_6094

Lastly, we have yet another Enterprise ornament. 2019 brings us the Enterprise refit from Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
