The 2020 Expo Calendar features inauguration of Las Vegas Expo at the Texas Station Hotel on February 9, 2020

Since the first launch of the Fashion Show and Expo in Los Angeles, El Clasificado, the Spanish speaking multimedia company, will put on its first Expo outside of California. The Las Vegas Expo will take place on February 9, 2020 at the Texas Station Hotel, from 12pm to 5pm. Already, more than 2,000 expectant quinceañeras and their families have registered to attend through Eventbrite.

El Clasificado first launched Fashion Shows and Expos in Los Angeles on July 2006 to celebrate the glorious and cherished coming of age tradition that honors young Latinas on their 15th birthday. The expo’s slogan, “Quinceañera: quince años, quince más, ¿hasta dónde llegarás?” (which translates to “15 years, 15 more, how far will you go?”) captures El Clasificado’s goal of inspiring young girls to dream and plan for their future.

14 years after that first launch, the expo has expanded to serve Latino families with 8 different expos held throughout the year in Fresno, Bakersfield, Long Beach, San Fernando, Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, Ontario, and San Diego. Although Quinceañ and the XV Party Planning App serve Quinceañeras across the U.S, the demand for more expos outside of California has grown. In late 2019, El Clasificado thought it was time they met that demand by expanding towards Nevada.
