Spotlight on Sponsors: Destination Henderson The Premier Choice for Meeting Planners

Nicole Johnson, City of Henderson Office of Communications and Council Support

Just minutes from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip and McCarran International Airport, Destination Henderson is the perfect blend of both worlds – big city innovation and hometown hospitality – with its location providing a tranquil environment for productive events.

With over 4,000 guest rooms and 250,000 square feet of meeting space available citywide, both at gaming and non-gaming properties, the options for planners are endless. Destination Henderson’s luxury brand resorts, boutique hotels and lakeside venues offer full-service facilities that are customizable to fit any size meeting and budget.

Rather than host a meeting in a conference room or banquet hall, try something different. Destination Henderson offers an abundance of unique meeting spaces. Lake Las Vegas is a lavish destination on its own. Nestled against the desert mountainside, the Mediterranean-inspired retreat is surrounded by a 320-acre private lake, cobblestone streets, sandy white beaches and name brand resorts, including the all-new Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort. It offers stunning function areas al fresco, from enchanting gardens to private lagoons and elegant courtyards, all of which overlook the serene waters of Lake Las Vegas. 

As the only Henderson flagship property on the Las Vegas Strip, the Forbes Mobil 4 STAR award-winning M Resort, Casino & Spa features the Hostile Grape, a stylish underground wine cellar and tasting room that allows guests to unwind and network. A true wine bar, the venue includes a collection of more than 160 of the world’s finest wines and a state-of-the art wine dispensing system.  Most recently, the M unveiled the latest in intimate meeting options, LUX. Located on the 16th floor, the 7,200 square-foot space features panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip, a gourmet kitchen and wine-tasting machines.

For those who plan on booking an extended stay, there’s no need to worry about finding ways to pass the time.  Bordered by some of the world’s most famous natural and manmade wonders, including Lake Mead, the Colorado River and Red Rock Canyon, Destination Henderson is Southern Nevada’s gateway to the ultimate outdoor adventure playground. It offers a variety of thrill-seeking activities, including bike rides on the world-famous River Mountains Loop Trail, home to a portion of the Ironman World Championship bike course; kayaking trips at Lake Mead; and high-flying adventures on a zip line. 

Destination Henderson is the premier destination for a more relaxed meeting itinerary. With its unique meeting experience, opportunities to explore the great outdoors and close proximity to the Las Vegas Strip, Destination Henderson is the ideal location for events and meetings.
