By September 19, 2019 December 3rd, 2019 No Comments

There’s nothing like Las Vegas or its conferences. Las Vegas captures the imagination in a way few other places do.  But what is it exactly that makes our exciting hometown the expo capital of the world? 

Simply put, there’s something for everyone in Las Vegas, from the glimmering stages to the buzzing casinos to the splashy pool parties in a golden sea of year-round appeal.

It’s no secret – hosting an event in Las Vegas can increase attendance, generate revenue, and boost morale, all while striking up an exciting new vision of your future. 

Here’s why this wonderfully bizarre place in the Nevada desert will always attract more eyes and press  – and why it’s an important piece to your next trade show.

Accommodations

Looking for somewhere to stay? You’re in good hands. 

With nearly 150,000 rooms and over 234,000 employees in the resort industry, Las Vegas is an unparalleled conference experience for anyone from anywhere. Resorts host 6.5 million meetings and convention delegates every year, and programs range in size from 10,000 to over 150,000 attendees every year. 

This is the city of space – more than 11.5 million sq. ft. of exhibit and meeting space and home to three of the largest convention spaces in the country, to be exact: The 2 million square foot Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the south Strip, the 1.7 million square foot Sands Expo and Convention Center (which includes the Venetian/Palazzo meeting space), and the 2.2 million square foot Las Vegas Convention Center. 

With over 20,000 conventions every year, this city is more than well-equipped to handle any and all of your needs. 

Increased Attendance

Everyone wants to go to Vegas, and research indicates that convention attendance increases by 8% when an event is hosted here. This is a town that allows you to wander and let your mind roam free. Whether you’re amidst the wiring ecosystem of a casino or the dazzling floor of your next trade show, this city is a feast for the senses. 

Over 1,000 inbound and outbound flights are in and out of McCarran International Airport daily with nonstop service from over 130 cities around the world. It’s natural gravitation towards fun and commerce. 

Weather

The alien landscape surrounding the city practically guarantees over 300 days of sunshine throughout the year, with less than five inches of annual precipitation. You never have to worry about the kind of inclement weather that sets back events in colder cities or areas prone to natural disasters. Vegas is always perfect, baby. 

It’s dry, it’s hot, and it’s perfect for your next meeting, whenever and whatever it may be. 

Dining + Entertainment

Let’s be frank – Las Vegas is America’s top dining city and that goes for every taste and budget out there. From Michelin-starred delicacies to eye-popping buffets, there is truly something for everyone in this town of culinary delights. It’s world-renown for its exquisite dining opportunities that range all across the spectrum of tastes. 

The flavors and chefs on hand are truly remarkable, and you will most definitely never go home hungry.

Location

Vegas is a hop, skip, and a jump (or less) from any and all of the West Coast hubs. We’re a little over an hour away from Los Angeles, San Diego, and Phoenix, and just an hour and a half from San Francisco. Denver and Seattle are only two hours away, and Dallas is about three. 

The aforementioned McCarran International Airport couldn’t be more conveniently located, sitting just two miles from Las Vegas Boulevard and 3.5 miles from the Las Vegas Convention Center. Most of the 150,000 hotel rooms are within a quick, hassle-free 15-minute ride from the airport.
