From world-class dining and entertainment to exciting outdoor adventures and cultural attractions, to unbeatable nightlife and social activities, there’s something for everyone in this vibrant metropolis.
As you prepare for your upcoming conference in Las Vegas, glean insights on how to prepare and take advantage of all that the destination has to offer.
FOR BEST RESULTS, PLAN AHEAD.
Once you’ve registered for your conference, it’s time to book your accommodations and airfare, and it’s best to do so early, as both can book up quickly during peak season(s). With the Harry Reid International Airport a mere three miles from the Las Vegas Strip, transportation is a breeze once you arrive. Consider using the Las Vegas Monorail, which has seven stations and stops along the Strip, or the Vegas Loop at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), which has five stops within the convention center and to Resorts World Las Vegas. Plus, if you stay at a resort on the Strip, there are tons of attractions, dining and things to do within walking distance.
Harry Reid International Airport
If you know of others from your network who are attending the same conference, or if your clients will be present, reach out and prearrange meetups to maximize your time together. And if your event is held at LVCC, download the LVCC Wayfinding app available on App Store and Google Play for helpful information.
POST-CONFERENCE DINING IN LAS VEGAS
Challenge yourself to attend as many networking events and gatherings as you can that are offered by the conference organizers. Or keep the conversation going by inviting colleagues or new connections to dinner or drinks. A few hot spots to consider include:
