With approximately 150,000 rooms available throughout the destination, Las Vegas offers the best group value proposition in the world.

2. Tons of Meeting Space
If it’s space you’re after, Vegas has you covered. Las Vegas boasts more than 14-million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, including three of the United States’ top 10 largest convention centers: the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, The Venetian Expo and the Las Vegas Convention Center.

3. Increased Attendance
On average, attendance increases 9% when conventions rotate into Las Vegas, with attendees spending more time in meetings and on the tradeshow floor. And with hybrid events being a new mainstay in the industry, resorts and venues across the destination remain at the forefront of technological advancements when it comes to mixing in-person and virtual. Expect incredible internet bandwidth, on-site broadcast studios, virtual reality capabilities, live hosting and contactless processes.
4. Exceptional Convention Venues & Service
With the highly qualified staff at every level of engagement, Las Vegas provides an exceptional convention experience you can count on. Why else would the city maintain the top ranking on the Trade Show News Network (TSNN) list of tradeshow destinations for the last 26 years (and counting)? And with health and safety at top of mind, you can rest easy knowing that the Las Vegas Convention Center, The Venetian Convention and Expo Center, Resorts World Las Vegas, and Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, as well as the Harry Reid International Airport, have all received GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation, the gold standard for the cleaning industry.
