*** 2020 OTLS Convention Cancellation ***

Due to the uncertainty surrounding when/how Las Vegas will re-open, the attendant health safety concerns, issues with late travel bookings as well as our community’s overall anxiety the OTLS Board believes the prudent decision is to cancel the 2020 convention. At this time, we have committed to the Golden Nugget that the 2021 convention will remain at their hotel/casino. We are in negotiations for possibly holding the convention in May so the gap between shows is not a full year. Plans are still in place to issue a 2020 convention lighter but we’ve had to forego the original design and with Zippo’s shutdown during this period any revised lighter will not be ready as would be expected in a normal year. We will issue updates when known. Thank you for your understanding and I am truly sorry to be the bearer of the unhappy news.
