Las Vegas is where more business travelers want to go and where more business gets done.
The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) hosted 52 events in 2021—welcoming an estimated 730,000 attendees. Research shows that attendance increases by 9% when conventions are held in the city, and that attendees spend more time in meetings and on the trade show floor when programs are held in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is moving forward confidently, with safety as a priority. The Las Vegas Convention Center, The Venetian Convention and Expo Center, Resorts World Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, and Harry Reid International Airport are Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR certified. Developed by ISSA, the world’s leading trade association for the cleaning industry, the accreditation is considered the gold standard for safe facilities.
The city pairs a spectacular tourist destination with state-of-the-art meeting venues and easy access to every amenity. With approximately 150,000 rooms, Las Vegas offers the best group value proposition in the world. No matter your meeting size, Las Vegas can accommodate any group of attendees and has options for every budget.
Las Vegas has more than 14 million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, with more than 2 million square feet of new meeting space. This allows the opportunity to create reimagined spaces, barriers, signage and advanced logistics for attendees to be comfortable and socially distanced.
New spaces include: Resorts World Las Vegas, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, AREA15, Circa Hotel & Casino, CAESARS FORUM, The Stella Studio at The Venetian Expo, Wynn Las Vegas’ newest expansion, Allegiant Stadium, and the Las Vegas Convention Center’s West Hall expansion.
Conveniently nestled in the heart of the city, Harry Reid International Airport offers easy access to and from any location throughout Las Vegas—just 2 miles from Las Vegas Boulevard and 3.5 miles from the Las Vegas Convention Center. There are also many transportation options available that make traveling between any hotel or convention facility a breeze, including shuttles; taxis; rideshares; public transportation; plus the country’s first automated monorail and innovative, underground transportation system, the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop.
In the ever-expanding Downtown Las Vegas area, there is plenty of meeting spaces in walking distance from hotels. Consider The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, or Downtown Grand with its new expansion of rooms and meeting spaces. Plus, Circa Resort & Casino adds its own stylish approach to accommodating groups. The space provides as much fun as function with Stadium Swim and Legacy Club Rooftop Cocktails.
Meet Smart Vegas Smart is Las Vegas’ campaign to remind visitors to remain smart and responsible while they’re in the destination, and to help educate them about local health and safety protocols. The city is also setting the standard for the new era of meetings with new, tech-forward, unique venues and offerings to accommodate meetings/events with a hybrid element for those who can’t attend in-person meetings.
