Grace Armitage, PR Account Manager at Hills Balfour has recently accompanied a group of four journalists in the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events genre, to Las Vegas.
Las Vegas hosted four writers representing five MICE publications between the 11th – 15th April 2016. The trip showcased Las Vegas as one of the number one MICE destinations, focusing on the latest event spaces, venues, incentives, convention facilities, hotels and restaurants as well as anything relevant to prospective business travellers to Las Vegas and UK event planners looking to hold an incentive, conference or event in the city.
The trip included the Global Meetings Industry Day at the new T-Mobile Arena, where the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) joined leaders from across the Las Vegas meeting and convention industry including MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment, The Venetian and The Palazzo as well as Wynn Resorts for an in-depth panel discussion and celebration of meeting in Las Vegas.
They stayed at the fabulous Venetian hotel, where you can experience gondolas and then had dinner at the B&B Ristorante. This was followed by Cirque du Soleil.
The following day they took a helicopter ride over the iconic Grand Canyon which they all loved…of course. Then in the evening was another visit to Cirque du Soleil to see an alternative show, followed by a stroll along the strip.
They then moved to the ARIA Resort and Casino to try out a different hotel and also did some zip lining.
They experienced some wonderful restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as attending the Global Meetings Industry Day at the new T Mobile Arena.
