This year’s nominations were made by a stellar cross-section of leaders in the international concert business. The 185 people who made this year’s selections operated individually and were prohibited from nominating themselves. The identity of those making nominations will not be revealed until the night of the awards.

The awards party and presentation will be held Wednesday, February 15th, at The Theatre At Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Lewis Black returns for an unprecedented fourth time to host, toast and roast the event along with what promises to be the most star-studded list of guest presenters in the event’s 17-year history.

The Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino is sponsoring this year’s extravaganza and provides the ideal combination of a beautiful proscenium theatre for the awards and an exotic adjacent space for the food buffet and open bar after-party.

A ticket to the awards is included with each CIC registration. Additional ticket orders, conference or hotel reservations can be made at Special CIC discount hotel accommodations are available at the upscale THEhotel At Mandalay Bay or the adjacent pyramid-shaped Luxor Las Vegas.

More than half of all CIC delegates will be staying at these hotels on the Strip and will utilize the free shuttle transportation provided to Green Valley Ranch for the conference. Please note that the cost of a CIC registration goes up by $100 after December 15th.
