Las Vegas is known as Sin City, but it can also be called Trade Show City. The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) hosts some of the largest trade shows in the United States, including the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the Magic apparel and accessories show. With 3.2 million square feet of exhibit and event space, including 144 meeting rooms and 25-foot ceiling heights, there's plenty of room for any event. The venue comprises two main halls, North Hall and South Hall, with more than 1.9 million square feet of dedicated exhibit space. Located less than a mile from the Strip, the convention center is perfectly positioned for attendees that want to mix business with leisure.
WHERE TO SLEEP
Featuring nearly 150,000 hotel rooms, Las Vegas makes finding accommodations easy. The Courtyard by Marriott Las Vegas Convention Center is a stone's throw from the LVCC, and there are plenty of resorts and casinos lining the Strip for any price point, from the Bellagio and Luxor to Planet Hollywood and The Venetian.
WHAT TO EAT
The LVCC features two sit-down restaurants, Lucky's and Aces, as well as food courts, concession stands, and Starbucks. Las Vegas hotels and casinos are known for their buffets, and the Wicked Spoon in The Cosmopolitan has something for everyone. For great views of the city, Top of the World features group dining options and tasting menus.
