You can tell when a city is a popular destination for something. Just this past year, Las Vegas became the go-to destination for trade shows with more than 19,700 events under its belt.
The city is home to three of the largest convention centers in the country and welcomes millions of convention attendees each and every year. Las Vegas also is home to countless other venues that often hold meetings, events, and smaller expos.
Las Vegas is a great host city for trade shows, expositions, and conventions. It has the venue space, direct flights in and out of McCarran International Airport, luxury conveniences, entertainment venues, and gourmet dining options you want along the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.
Prior to booking your flight and hotel accommodations, make sure that you have everything set in place for your conference and trade show booth. It’s good to have it planned well in advance, about six months.
