The Numbers Behind MIC 2022
1202 Total Attendees
Last week we welcomed our biggest crowd to MIC. Over three days, 1,202 people gathered in Las Vegas to attend talks, collaborate and network with leaders from across the military-connected community. As we prepare to launch our 2023 event, we wanted to share some of the figures behind the experience.
- #Vettogether Reception 461
- Comedy Night 556
- MilSpouse After Hours 148
- Mighty 25 Gala 316
A constant measure of the success of MIC is the number of women attending. This year, 51.2% of our attendees were female. We’re delighted to provide a safe and welcoming experience to so many women.
- 21% Military Spouses
- 45% of our Veteran population consisted of women
9% Local to Las Vegas
While service members, veterans, and spouses came from all over the country, we’ve also been focused on having a local impact. In partnership with the Veteran Tickets Foundation, the Southern Nevada Chamber of Commerce, and the First Command Team out of Las Vegas, we were able to establish a foundation of local supporters who believe in our mission and the potential impact for 2023.
- 41% of attendees came from within a five-hour radius of Las Vegas
- 16% of attendees came from Central Texas
This year, we welcomed attendees from 107 organizations focused on shaping change within the military-connected community.
MIC wouldn’t be possible without the support of our partners. 71 partners, spread across 28,000 square meters of exhibition space, joined us in Las Vegas, including USAA, Instant Teams, New Rez, Bunker Labs, Organized Q, Comcast Military, Armed Forces Insurance, CrossCountry Mortgage, and a host of others.
$300k+ in Cash & Resources
The Veteran Fund welcomed an extraordinary panel of judges for their second annual $100,000 Pitch Competition. Five finalists pitched, with Lee Mills of Pixly was recognized as the winner. To everyone’s surprise, Monica Fullerton of Spouse-ly was also received $100,000 in commitments via a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV).
In addition, the Second Service Foundation awarded $25,000 in cash and $75,000 in legal support from H&K Law.
Congressman Dan Crenshaw attended the Mighty 25 Gala and helped crown the winners of the Pitch Competition.
