Curate An Experience

Visiting Vegas is more than just a trip, it’s an experience and your event should be no different. Think beyond the event as you find ways to deliver unforgettable moments for your guests. Bring world-class live entertainment options that Vegas is famous for or a number of other interactive experiences to your event. Video gaming stations, casino tables, mixology experiences, sommelier education, social media photo-ops, and strolling entertainment are just a few of the ways we’ve seen convention parties take it to the next level for their guests. Be creative and find your inspiration!

Brand, Brand, Brand

The easiest way to win in Vegas? Bet on your brand. Use all of your venue’s available experiential marketing and branding options to get your name out there for your guests to see. In-house technology like digital billboards and monitors create a perfect space for brands to be displayed throughout the entire venue. Take things a step further with step-and-repeats, signage and pop-up banners strategically placed in high-traffic and photo-friendly areas. Reinforce the message with branded cups, napkins and other items that your guests will encounter throughout the event. We’ve even had clients do temporary tattoos that displayed a specific message. No opportunity is too small to brand!

Pick A Vegas Venue That’s A Partner, Not Just A Vendor

Part of planning a legendary event is picking the right venue for your event. When it comes to your venue, you deserve a partner, and you shouldn’t settle for anything less! The difference between a “Vegas party” and an unforgettable, epic experience is a venue that cares as much as you do. Live Nation’s House of Blues Las Vegas offers flexible space, world-class production capabilities, and the best team in Vegas, but what really sets us apart is our dedication to your vision.

It’s Vegas, Make Sure Your Food & Beverage Is On Point

Every trip to Vegas should include a delectable food and drink experience that you’ll remember for months to come, and so should your event. Factor in that your guests are coming hungry after hours spent on the convention floor, and it becomes even more critical that your food and beverage are on point. Building a craft menu for your guests to discover is part of the fun. Hire mixologists to create a signature cocktail for your brand, or curate a heritage whiskey or wine experience. Our House of Blues culinary team is ready to create features like a taco stand or s’mores station that engage guests with some DIY fun.

Give Your Guests A Takeaway

Giving your guests a takeaway not only creates a long-term connection between them and your event, but it’s also a perfect opportunity to flex your brand! Whether you go for small-scale gifts like t-shirts or big-ticket items like Bluetooth speakers, guests love free stuff. If it just so happens to feature your logo, even better!
