Logging more trade shows annually than any other venue in the country, the Las Vegas Convention Center is the undisputed king of facilities in the U.S. exhibition industry. Its 3.2 million square feet of space is divided into 144 meeting rooms and 16 exhibit halls spanning 2 million square feet of exhibit space, along with a 225,000-square-foot grand lobby and registration area. The venue boasts state-of-the-art technology for exhibitors and versatile configurations that allow multiple events to use the facility simultaneously. Situated within close proximity to Vegas attractions and accommodations, the LVCC is home to many of the nation's largest and best attended trade shows.
|WHERE TO SLEEP
The 30-story Las Vegas Hotel and Casino adjoins the LVCC. The Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel and the Courtyard by Marriott Las Vegas are nongaming, business-class hotels adjacent to the convention center. More than 100,000 hotel rooms are within easy reach, many of which can be accessed using the monorail that runs to and from the Las Vegas Strip.
|WHAT TO EAT
The LVCC has 18 concession stands, two Starbucks, and two restaurants with seating for more than 1,300 people. Nearby, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House is a good choice for elegant client dinners in the mahogany-paneled dining room, or select Piero's Italian Cuisine for a stylishly retro ambiance. Both restaurants offer private space for upscale off-site events as well.
|HOW TO GET THERE
The LVCC is four miles from McCarran International Airport, where plentiful taxi and shared van transportation is available. Taxi fare to the center is approximately $18, with shuttles available for half that amount. A monorail connects the LVCC with the Las Vegas Strip, as do city buses. With the abundant options available, rental cars are typically the least efficient mode of transportation in Las Vegas.
|An exhibitor can contract the install and dismantle of an exhibit from union labor, or it may perform those tasks itself. If an exhibitor opts to do its own I&D, the individuals doing the work must be full-time employees
of the exhibiting company.
Union labor is required for electrical work, though exhibitors may plug in equipment to one 120-volt receptacle and hang up to four small clip-on lights per booth.
Union labor must
be used for freight handling, though exhibitors may hand carry materials
so long as a cart or other equipment is not used.
Any exhibitor-appointed company working in the LVCC must apply for a permit and obtain a business license from Clark County.
Get approval from the convention services manager and fire-prevention office for Halogen and quartz fixtures. The LVCC restricts the use of Halogen bulbs greater than 75 watts.
A FedEx Business Center is open daily just off the grand concourse
in the LVCC, and can provide large-format graphics, last-minute printing, etc.
Free Wi-Fi is available in all common lobby areas, as well as in both restaurants in the venue.
