Creation Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products announced today that the Star Trek 50th Anniversary Convention will take place next summer, August 3-7, 2016, at The Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas. The five-day convention will host more than 100 Star Trek celebrities (including William Shatner, Walter Koenig and Levar Burton) as well as thousands of fellow fans.

“This event has always been uniquely innovative and in tune with what the Star Trek fan wants and expects. Every attendee, no matter what their ticket price, has a chance to see all the stars when they want to without fear of waiting or not getting in,” said Adam Malin, Co-CEO of Creation Entertainment. “It’s the ultimate space where like-minded folks can meet the franchise stars, argue trivia, look at the scientific and philosophical pop culture impact of the brand and of course make friendships that have lasted generations.”

The 50th Anniversary Convention will allow fans to meet their favorite Star Trek stars and explore everything from official set designs to costumes and props. More information will be available online soon and stay tuned to for a limited pass giveaway to this once in lifetime Star Trek event!
