Cool Meeting Spaces? Vegas Tops the Agenda Cool Meeting Spaces? Vegas Tops the Agenda

Meetings are part of daily life for most of us. Whether it's in a stuffy conference room, in a supervisor's office, or even hanging around the water cooler, there are many places we gather to discuss relevant matters. 

Sometimes it's to get deals done. Sometimes it's for networking. Sometimes, it's just to have some fun away from the daily grind.

And sometimes, it's all of the above. That's where Vegas Means Business. When it's time for your group to get together, the world's most exciting destination is at your service. With some of the top convention center spaces on the planet and huge conference rooms and restaurants that accommodate groups in dozens of major resorts, no place is better equipped to handle an assembly of any size than Las Vegas.

Las Vegas is also home to many unique meeting venues, too. Places where you can hold anything from corporate events to family reunions, all while enjoying activities to suit practically every desire. Here are just some of the distinctive meeting spots in the Las Vegas area.

This flagship location can host up to 2,000 people, with more than 100 hitting bays that can hold as many as six players apiece with amenities such as a TV in every bay. But golf is just the beginning here. There are great food options, full-service bars and even concerts for your group to enjoy.
