Las Vegas: Why Las Vegas is the Perfect Conference, Convention or Meeting Destination

There are few meeting destinations on earth that can rival Las Vegas, with its seemingly endless array of dazzling accommodations, resorts, casinos, entertainment, and night life. With over 3,700 conventions hosted annually in Las Vegas, it’s clear that Sin City is an enormous draw for meetings of all sizes and industries.

Las Vegas’ history can be described as a series of dynamic eras, each bigger and bolder than its predecessor, each changing its look and character. Originally home to the Southern Paiute tribe, in the early 1900s Las Vegas was a small oasis in the middle of the Nevada desert. In the 1930s, the legalization of gambling and the construction of the Hoover Dam put it on the map, followed in 1941 by the first Vegas Strip hotel, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Planning a meeting on the Las Vegas “Strip” is sure to be an unforgettable event for attendees.. Vegas has a reputation for being a mecca of access, and is referred to as the home of the lost weekend, but it has a serious side.  For corporate events that require a balance of the glitz and glamour and the natural Nevada landscape, Vegas borders some of the most stunning red rock formations in the country. Offering a plethora of relaxing pools and rooftop eateries, Las Vegas has cultivated as many assets for business as it has for play.

Whether you require a million square foot conference space in the heart of the strip or a smaller meeting venue or conference room closer to the outskirts, Las Vegas is sure to provide any meeting planner with a host of options from which to choose. But it wouldn’t quite feel like a trip to Las Vegas without a little gambling. Outside of the meeting room, stop in for a gourmet meal, try your hand at the slots, or simply take a moment to yourself by one of the hundreds of hotel pools.

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but your attendees will likely have such a great conference, they’ll be sharing their memories of their destination meeting for years to come.
