What to Consider When Choosing Your Las Vegas Convention Space

No matter what type of convention you are planning, organizing the event requires a great deal of due diligence. It requires information gathering if you’re hopeful of a successful outcome. The entire process can take anywhere from 1 to 2 years. And, the reality is that you can lose a considerable amount of time overlooking vital details, and over-thinking every little detail. Naturally, choosing the city and venue for your convention is the most critical factor in the selection process.

Why Las Vegas?

As an industry leading premier event planning agency, the Downtown Project Events team can give you plenty of reasons to choose this city for your convention. Las Vegas has been appropriately nicknamed the “Entertainment Capital of the World” and for good reason. The city features everything you could imagine in the way of dining, entertainment, and shopping. However, here are seven (7) additional reasons for reserving Las Vegas convention space:

  • abundant accommodations (approximately 150,000 rooms available)
  • allure of the city generates increased attendance
  • convention venues (we own and operate our own venues)
  • excellent air service in and out of the city
  • transportation is never an issue (you’ll be within walking distance if your hotel is close to the venue you have selected)
  • Vegas averages 320 days of sunshine annually
  • wide array of dining and entertainment venues to choose from

Taking the above factors into consideration, it’s easy to see why so many people consider Las Vegas to be the ideal city for a broad range of events, including conventions.

Getting Started

Before you start developing your event planning agenda with Downtown Project Events, take a minute. Close your eyes and envision your event and the type of Las Vegas convention space that will best address your needs. Of course, you’ll need to put your vision into numbers and words to create your event budget, make well informed decisions, and total up the costs involved. In other words, you’ll need to consider the essential details or who, what, when, where and why.

You should also develop a business plan for your convention event. Unless a 3rd party is funding the event, or you get some type of grant funding, you’ll need to determine where the money for your convention budget is coming from, and what it is spent on. Be sure you calculate the revenue part of the equation in the beginning of the planning stage. To establish convention costs, you’ll need to figure what you are going to offer those in attendance. These are some important considerations that must be focused upon.

Choosing Your Venue
