Las Vegas is officially open for business.
Here are just a few reasons why Las Vegas is primed for meetings and events of all types.
With abundant world-class resorts, Las Vegas offers accommodations to fit nearly every event budget. Consider customizable venues such as the Neon Museum, which preserves iconic Las Vegas signs for cultural enrichment, and AREA15, an immersive playground that stimulates the senses. Allegiant Stadium is on the forefront of private and corporate events, boasting 10 event spaces and the capacity for 65,000 guests. Las Vegas’ resorts hosted 6.6 million meeting, convention and incentive delegates in 2019, and highly experienced resort staff are ready to continue this level of engagement.
It’s no surprise that Las Vegas has served as the No. 1 trade show destination for 26 consecutive years, and looking forward, Las Vegas’ offerings are only getting bigger and better. Boasting nearly 14 million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, it’s home to three of the country’s largest convention venues: the Las Vegas Convention Center, which just added 1.4 million square feet with its West Hall expansion; the Mandalay Bay Convention Center; and the Venetian Expo. As outdoor events become increasingly popular, the opportunity to embrace the potential of the Las Vegas climate is unparalleled. Fusing warm, welcoming weather with outstanding facilities, there are endless opportunities to create unique outdoor events.

New resorts like Circa Las Vegas and Resorts World offer tempting, fresh opportunities to explore the city, while hot restaurants like Delilah and Amalfi entice guests from around the world with food and beverage opportunities.
