January gets a boost in Las Vegas, thanks to a few high-profile trade shows

Average temperature low and high: 39° - 58°

Temperatures hover between the mid 30s and upper 50s. Compared to most of the country, winters are mild and ideal for vacationers looking to escape snow and save on hotelsshows and nightclub covers. A few major trade shows, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, draw tens of thousands and inspire parties and events up and down the Strip.

Though the city spends part of January cleaning up from New Year’s events and preparing for the spring tourism rush, Las Vegas still offers plenty of entertainment and excitement.

Those wanting to indulge in Sin City nightlife may find limited opportunities to catch big-name DJs, but this benefits groups on a budget. Covers are lower, lines are shorter and you and a little more room on the dance floor.

David Lee Roth: Rocks Vegas

David Lee Roth debuts a new residency at the house of Blues inside Mandalay Bay. The Van Halen singer “Rocks Vegas” with shows January 8, 10-11. Roth had a previous Vegas residency in the ’90s that was heavy on kitsch and camp. Expect this new go-around to be more of a traditional rock show with a twin-guitar attack. Roth returns in March with six more shows and if all goes well, perhaps more later in the year.

Consumer Electronics Show (CES)

The ever-expanding Consumer Technology Association’s 2020 trade show is expected to bring close to 200,000 people to Las Vegas between January 7 and 10. It’s one of the city’s largest conventions, both in the number of attendees and economic impact. The show is so large it occupies space in the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Wynn, and Encore, the Sands Expo Center at the Palazzo and Venetian, and CityCenter, which consists of the Aria, Park MGM, and Vdara.

AVN Adult Entertainment Expo

The Adult Video News every January hosts its annual Adult Entertainment Expo, Adult Novelty Expo and awards ceremony. The convention is set to take place at the Hard Rock Hotel between January 22–25. It draws more than 30,000 celebrities, industry workers and adult entertainment fans from around the globe.

Dubbed the Oscars of porn, the convention’s premiere event is the 2020 AVN Awards and takes place Saturday, January 25. Read more here.

Come for the awards, stay for the after-parties. While some are “invite only”, many strip clubs and nightclubs host special events the weekend of the ceremony. Check out our AVN Expo page for more information.

Events are added without much notice. Check our bar page before and during your visit. Login with your Facebook account to review the special offers.

Outdoor Activities: As with all cooler months in Vegas, January is great for getting outdoors and exploring the desert.

The Neon Museum: Located outside the trendy downtown area, the Neon Museum is a boneyard for a bygone era, featuring acres of electric nostalgia from old Vegas hotels and businesses. It is affordable, even for large families, and offers great opportunities for photography.

The Mob Museum: Located in the old Downtown courthouse, the Mob Museum offers a wide variety of exhibits dedicated to the history of mobsters and organized crime. Grab a drink in the downstairs speakeasy-style bar, which has its own built-in distillery.

Downtown Container Park: Families will want to check out this unique attraction. Located just east of the Fremont Experience, old cargo shipping containers have been turned into a great place for affordable food, boutique shopping, live entertainment and a play area for kids with a tree house.

Walk The Las Vegas Strip: Grab a light jacket or sweatshirt and use our mobile-friendly Strip map to explore Las Vegas Boulevard from the Stratosphere to Mandalay Bay. If walking the whole 4.2-mile strip sounds daunting, you might want to take free trams that run between Mandalay Bay and Excalibur, Park MGM and Bellagio, and the Mirage and Treasure Island.
