Las Vegas, NV

Las Vegas is known the world over for its glitzy casinos and glamorous live shows, but all the energy (and the amazing venues) also make it a hotspot for industry exhibitions, trade shows, and memorable corporate events.

There’s close to 11 million square feet of event space in Las Vegas, perfect for trade shows, meetings, conferences, and all manner of corporate events. The Las Vegas Convention Center alone offers more than 3.2 million square feet of facilities, while the Sands Expo® halls and Mandalay Bay Convention Center each have around 2 million square feet of facilities.
