As Las Vegas continues to grow, new developments for the next generation of meetings and events continues to grow as well. Recently opened venues in Las Vegas – and those set to open within the next year – offer massive amounts of flexible meeting space with the ability to accommodate smaller groups in the current meetings and events landscape, and larger convention groups in the future.
With 300,000 square feet of event venues with outdoor areas, Wynn Las Vegas has some of the most stunning spaces, including the newest 20,000-square-foot Event Pavilion and adjacent expansive lawn. With amazing views of Wynn Golf Club’s 18th hole fairway and waterfall, it’s the perfect setting for business or entertaining.

At the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders, there are more than 10 event spaces within Allegiant Stadium – including the Field, VIP clubs, and large concourse spaces.
