Ease of Transportation and Cost Savings
An abundance of top-tier hotels just five to 15 minutes away from the airport helps significantly reduce the need for long taxi, rideshare or bus travel. Harry Reid International Airport is located 2 miles from Las Vegas Boulevard and 3.5 miles from the Las Vegas Convention Center. With over 1,050 inbound and outbound flights daily, including direct service to nearly 150 U.S. and international cities, Las Vegas is easily accessible to your employees across the country or across the globe.

Get Connected and Respected
You’ll impress the industry influencers in your crowd with live, tweetable and Instagram-able set pieces, especially for a younger, more digitally connected group who crave a strong social media-friendly venue. Having incredible internet bandwidth, broadcast studios (in some places), virtual reality experiences, live hosting, and contactless digital support for hybrid events help to make your event a resounding success.
Get to Know Your People Outside the Office
Consider conference venues and their accompanying entertainment in spaces that offer open floor plans with plenty of places to sit, chat and connect. If you so choose, there’s a near-limitless number of places to golf, dance and laugh at comedy routines, or check out world-famous singing acts or lounges to sip a few drinks and keep things low-key. Chances are, your employees, partners and team members will want to see the sights and sounds of all that the destination offers, and so oblige them by encouraging exploration and incorporating the spirit of discovery into the event by hosting group outings, such as Topgolf or something more out of the box, Lost Spirits Distillery at AREA15. The VEGAS ON team gives you a glimpse into the magic and enchantment that Lost Spirits has to offer.
