The American Securitization Forum (ASF) might have just kicked of its ASF 2012 event but it’s already planning ahead and announced today that it will again host the annual shindig in Las Vegas in 2013.

However, ASF Executive Director Tom Deutsch said that the details still need to be worked out.

Meanwhile, the 2012 event opened up to 4,600 registered attendees with the possibility of later walk-ins bringing this year’s attendee numbers close to 5,000.  It is being held in Las Vegas' ARIA hotel and convention center. The conference will last until Wednesday, Jan 25.

“The facilities are the right size for this event,” Deutsch said. This is a way to help the "hard-hit city, which needs all the business it can get."

The last time the conference was held in Las Vegas was in 2009 at the Venetian and Palazzo resorts. Deutsch said coming back to Las Vegas has become the only option to hold ASF 2012 given that there are no other facilities in the country except those in the area that can host a gathering of this size.
