DESTINATIONS AT OUR LAST EVENT

Las Vegas, USA

A perennial favourite for meetings and conventions, Las Vegas is glam, brash, and glitzy - perfect for events with the wow factor. In 2016 Las Vegas welcomed 43 million visitors - and 6.3 million of these were convention attendees. Home to three of the 10 largest convention centres in the USA, Las Vegas is best known for the Strip, which comes to life once the sun sets. Casinos, shows and all kinds of entertainment make this city in the Nevada Desert a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your clients.

Our Host Venue - Caesars Palace

Arguably the world's best-known casino resort, the award-winning Caesars Palace should be on everyone's itinerary. With nearly 4000 guest rooms, 300,000 square feet of event space (including the pillarless Octavius and Forum ballrooms) and an illustrious history, Caesars Palace is a landmark in Las Vegas. Its décor, a tribute to the excesses of ancient Rome, should be seen to be believed. This is your opportunity to experience this legend of hospitality and entertainment first hand.
