LAS VEGAS CONVENTIONS

Las Vegas Convention News
High Rollers in Las Vegas

            More than one in 10 visitors to Las Vegas now comes here for a convention. From small meetings to January's massive Consumer Electronics Show, these gatherings are big business.

            That's why the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is attempting to finalize a plan to spend $2.3 billion to build a new convention center on the site of the old Riviera Hotel & Casino. If the deal goes through, the project will bring even more space to the north end of the Las Vegas Strip. The Riviera site is a block north of Wynn Las Vegas and across from the new Resorts World Las Vegas.

             Not only are these plans an indication of how much Las Vegas has moved toward non-gaming sources of revenue, the convention center would further pull visitors toward the north end of The Strip. Sands Expo and Convention Center at The Venetian is already a major draw for the Strip.

The Strip is changing
            There's really only one constant in Las Vegas and that's change. Today, the Strip is changing into an entertainment and business destination that's less focused on gambling and more focused on entertainment events and extravagance, from hotel rooms to restaurants.
            These three projects are evidence of those broad trends, and we'll soon see a whole new Strip -- until Las Vegas' next big reinvention.
            The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) has been named the best Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) by Successful Meetings Magazine after receiving the publication’s 2016 Pinnacle Award. This announcement marks the 24th time the LVCVA has been recognized for this honor.
            Las Vegas holds the honor of being the No. 1 tradeshow destination in North America for 21 years running for hosting 60 of the largest 250 trade shows. Las Vegas hosts nearly 6 million business delegates and nearly 22,000 individual meetings and conventions annually. In an effort to highlight the variety of events that take place in the destination, Las Vegas created the “Unconventional” video series.lvcva            According to Successful Meetings, the LVCVA was named one of the best CVBs in the country for having “excelled in professionalism and dedication in their service to meeting professionals.” Successful Meetings readers made selections based on professionalism of staff, support on hotel and site inspections, assistance with ground transportation planning, guidance on local attractions and liaison relationships with local vendors and services.
