ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ looking for Las Vegans with great ideas

Updated January 10, 2018 - 5:02 pm

Have you invented something that you just know the world is clamoring for?

You could call that helpline George Foreman advertises on late-night TV. Or you could bring it, or your surefire business plan, to The Venetian for a chance to be on ABC’s “Shark Tank.”

Numbered wristbands will be distributed from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday at the hotel’s Delfino Ballroom, with one-minute pitch sessions scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Everyone who arrives during the wristband distribution will be allowed to pitch an idea or product to the show’s representatives.

According to the “Shark Tank” casting website, hopefuls will have time after receiving their wristbands to retrieve their props, but access to power, the internet or any other on-site equipment is not guaranteed.

Applicants must complete an information packet that can be downloaded here. Email any questions to casting@sharktanktv.com.
