30 Las Vegas Event Venues That Your Attendees Will Love

Jacob Thomas

Interested in hosting a Las Vegas area event? The 30 venues listed here are the best the city has to offer — no matter what kind of get-together you plan to throw.

Las Vegas is known around the world as a top resort location and people come from every corner of the earth to gamble, shop, eat award-winning food, see world-class entertainment, and experience one of a kind nightlife. But the “Entertainment Capital of the World” is more than just a giant party. The city has a rich history and a lot to offer folks of every stripe.

Settled in 1905 and officially incorporated in 1911, Las Vegas (which is Spanish for “the meadows”) is now the largest city in the state of Nevada and the 28th largest city in the United States. But it wasn’t always that way. Las Vegas was relatively small until the 1960’s when Howard Hughes began buying property in the area. Others followed his lead and Las Vegas has enjoyed steady growth ever since.

If you’re looking to plan an event in Las Vegas, you’re probably wondering what venue to host it in. There are A LOT of options! Fortunately, we’ve considerably narrowed down the list for you. The following 30 venues are the best the city has to offer. Whether you plan to host an intimate business meeting, a mid-size personal affair, or a giant, blowout trade show, this list has the perfect spot for you.
