Las Vegas

Always changing, yet affordable and accessible.


As Las Vegas evolves and continues to reinvent itself, the destination has remained the one place where anything is possible. Beyond the world’s best restaurants, entertainment, and shopping, meeting planners will find the greatest variety of meetings venues and resort accommodations of any destination in the world. With nearly 39 million visitors in 2011, Las Vegas has continued to prove itself as the world’s most desirable location for both leisure and business travel.

A big part of the Las Vegas allure is that there’s always something new and hot to experience - and right now there’s plenty of both coming down the pipeline. The world’s first Nobu hotel is slated to open in Las Vegas at the end of the year - Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, which has the world’s largest Nobu restaurant and lounge. Other new project s include McCarran International Airport’s new, $2.4-billion Terminal 3; the Delano Las Vegas, an all-suite hotel at Mandalay Bay set to open in late 2013; and The LINQ - a $550-million retail and entertainment corridor, part of which also is slated to open in 2013. A number of resort properties also are freshening up their guest rooms and spaces. Following a $70-million redesign of all 2,568 guest rooms in its main tower, Bellagio is currently remodeling all 928 rooms and suites in the resort’s Spa Tower, set for completion next month.

Every year, Las Vegas hosts some of the largest, most prestigious conventions, from the International Consumer Electronics Show to the MAGIC fashion apparel show and the National Association of Broadcasters Show. What keeps them coming back? Value. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) is the official destination marketing organization for Las Vegas, and its mission centers on attracting an ever-increasing number of leisure and business visitors to the area. With all the options Las Vegas has to offer, there is no better experience for the value.
