Vegas Means Business!

Welcome to Las Vegas, where business leaders from around the world meet, think and exchange ideas. It might sound like hype to call us a global crossroads, but it’s not hype if you can back it up. Without a doubt, Las Vegas is the world's premier meeting and convention destination, with more meeting space than any other city on the globe. Whether you want to host an intimate poolside mixer, a lavish banquet for 10,000 people or a major international convention, Las Vegas provides the most complete, flexible and extensive facilities and services in the world.

Meeting space in Las Vegas varies widely from a comfortable 200-square-foot conference room to a supersized 1 million-square-foot exhibition hall. Las Vegas facilities are modern, high-tech and up-to-date; and with configurable walls, custom convention space is easy to produce.

Las Vegas provides planners many options to ensure their groups are covered from their accommodations to meeting space, resulting in a positive meeting experience for all. Happy members and increased ROI leave planners with something to smile about.  With hundreds of hotels and price points for every fiscal budget, the value of Las Vegas helps you meet your bottom line.

Every corporate meeting is unique. We work with you to create the meeting you envision. Whether it's a sales meeting, seminar or training program, Las Vegas has meeting space to fit your needs. We know how important it is that your meeting is successful and productive. After all, your group is making vital decisions that affect your company. Lower room-tax rates and a choice of 280 hotels give you the flexibility to ensure success to your bottom line. Las Vegas knows time is money and we've built our city to get you to your meetings as fast as possible. With McCarran International Airport located directly on the Las Vegas Strip, you can literally see more than 100,000 hotel rooms from your airplane as you taxi to your arrival gate. Whether it's the state-of-the-art A/V and multimedia infrastructure of our world-class resorts, or the sheer variety of venues and boardrooms available for your meeting, Las Vegas offers you the tools and environment to ensure that your Vegas meeting is a productive one. After your business mission is accomplished, our award-winning restaurants, entertainment and attractions are sure to leave a lasting impression on your attendees. Whether you need a casual hospitality suite or elegant meeting space for VIPs, you will find it in Las Vegas.

Do you want to increase attendance to your next trade show? Research shows that attendance increases, on average, 8 percent when a show rotates into Las Vegas. Furthermore, delegates spend, on average, three hours longer on the show floor than in other cities. Home to three of the 10 largest convention centers in the U.S., plus more than 140 hotels with meeting facilities, Las Vegas boasts more than 11 million square feet of convention space. For 22 years straight, Las Vegas has been the No. 1 destination for trade shows. In fact, Las Vegas hosted 54 of the 250 largest shows in North America last year. That's more than the next two cities combined!
