Holding a meeting or convention in Las Vegas has long been known as a good way to bump up your attendance, and with good reason. When it comes to dining, nightlife, shopping and entertainment, Sin City offers a concentration and diversity that can only be matched by some of the largest capital cities in the world. And in that company, Las Vegas can be a real bargain, too.
It's all concentrated in one spot: Las Vegas Boulevard, aka The Strip. Even the Las Vegas Convention Center (after its current renovation) will face directly onto The Strip. All that proximity makes choosing where to go easier — it's perfectly viable to have your meeting or event in one venue, and then head off to dinner in a second resort, catch a show in a third and take in some nightlife in a fourth, then be back at your meeting the next day.
