In 2018, Safari Club International has a new home for its last convention for several years in Las Vegas- the Las Vegas Convention Center. In recent years, the convention has been at Mandalay Bay.
From Jan. 31 through Feb. 3, 2018, the new Headquarters Hotel will be located at MGM Grand across the street from the Mandalay Bay. The 2018 convention show floor will be located at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
This planned move started back in 2013 when the Mandalay Bay did not have open dates for SCI's convention. The Las Vegas Convention Center, the largest convention facility in the city with over 2 million square feet of exhibit space, stepped in and offered SCI a great location and great dates for its 46th Annual Hunters' Convention.
SCI provides complimentary shuttles to and from the Las Vegas Convention center and its hotels. SCI can provide attendees with everything needed to find and book their next destination to hunt and fish.
The SCI convention is not just for hunters, though. It is for Sportsmen and Sportswomen of every type. It truly is an amazing event, with six continents under one roof. Exhibitors offer a wide array of fabulous custom works in guns, art, wildlife jewelry, taxidermy, furniture and gear. SCI will be located in the Center and North Halls, with over 2,200 booths and 1,100 exhibitors.
After the 2018 SCI Las Vegas convention, SCI will not be back in Las Vegas until 2022, when SCI celebrates its 50th Anniversary.

Well-known comedian Tim Allen will perform at the Wednesday night opening gala dinner and auction. Tim, known as Tim the Tool Man for years, more recently became well-known for "Last Man Standing." Closing the event on Saturday night, keynote speaker Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, will provide an insider's insight into the most asked questions about today's political issues.

Nearly $10 million in hunts, guns and more will be sold during the daily live and silent auctions. You've got to be there to see what only the mind can dream. And these dreams will come true! Come and explore the possibilities. Bid on hunts from around the world or right here at home. Search for your next trip, using SCI's online auction browser. The money raised during the convention provides the majority of the crucial funds SCI needs to protect the hunting heritage. Over $15 million was raised during the 2017 convention to fund SCI and SCI Foundation programs benefitting Hunter Advocacy and Conservation.
Safari Club International's 46th Annual Hunters' Convention is to be held Jan. 31 - Feb. 3, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
