Conventioneer Checklist

Las Vegas Conventioneer ChecklistWhen you're coming to a Las Vegas convention for business or fun, it's important to ensure you've packed all of the essentials. Preparing your suitcase a few days ahead will help you get organized and can prevent frustration and anxiety as your departure date rushes closer.

Below is a comprehensive Conventioneer Checklist to help you skip last-minute packing anxiety and ensure you'll have everything you need when you arrive in Las Vegas:

I: The Week/End Essentials

  • Aspirin - For obvious reasons, this can be a life saver in Vegas and is great for helping you get through a nasty migraine or sore back, so can you can enjoy the convention.
  • Benadryl - If you're prone to seasonal or environmental allergies, a pack of Benadryl will be your best friend.
  • Cash – It’s king, especially in Las Vegas and doubly so during conventions where not all vendors accept credit cards. You should also consider having a debit or credit card on-hand for emergencies.
  • Health insurance card - Having your insurance card on you will help ensure you get properly treated in the case of an emergency. Payment options can always be worked out at a later time.
  • Phone charger - Nothing’s worse than watching your phone battery fade and die. Nobody wants to be stranded somewhere without a charger.
  • Protein bars (and/or beef jerky) - A quick (and tasty) source of protein works great for improving your energy and focus.

II: Convention Must Haves
  • Notepad and backup pens - Workshops and conference panels are, for many, the most exciting part of any convention. You won’t want to be caught without a pen and paper when industry leaders and innovators discuss exciting new ideas and concepts. As a conventioneer, you'll to take that knowledge home with you.
  • Badge/ticket - You won't get too far if you don't have this on the ready. If needed, be sure you have printed proof of purchase and all information required to pick your badge/ticket up at the convention's physical registration table.
  • Water bottle - This is perhaps the most important item to carry. It is possible that not enough water will be readily available at the convention, and it it’s always important to stay properly hydrated. If you're not accustomed to Las Vegas’ dry climate, you'll be even more prone to dehydration, which can bring down your mood and energy levels.
  • Hotel confirmation and phone number - Have your hotel booking information printed out to prevent any potential check-in problems and to help orient yourself should you lose your phone.

III:  Make Room for the Swag

  • Make room for take-homes - You might consider bringing an extra backpack or small suitcase to ensure you have plenty of room to bring back convention goodies. After all, every convention, no matter the industry or niche, will have vendors with swag.
  • Don't grab what you don't love - That said, only grab what you love, otherwise you'll find yourself walking around the convention lugging several pounds of items you'll never use or appreciate.

Travel Tips When Coming to Vegas

Travel Tips When Coming to Las Vegas

You may have your trip to Las Vegas planned to the minute, but how are you getting there? Traveling into Las Vegas can be a breeze or a nightmare and planning ahead can help with some of the headaches. Use these travel tips when coming to Las Vegas and come ready to enjoy!

Pre-Mail Your Luggage
One of the biggest time wasters isn't security or check-in, it's waiting for luggage. Thankfully, with services like LuggageForward, you can send your bags to the hotel so you only need to grab a taxi. An added perk is you eliminate the possibility of the airport losing your luggage altogether.

Take the Monorail
Once you're on the Strip, there's no need to continue with taxis. The monorail provides a fast and cheap way to see the wonders of the Strip. While the entrance to the casinos may be a walk, it provides a great way to see all the casinos at your leisure.

Book Your Flight Today
When's the best time to get the cheapest flight? While it used to be easy to fly into Las Vegas, some airlines have reduced their flights into Las Vegas in the face of a stumbling economy. That means less seats and more money to buy them. Get started early in searching for your flight, preferably three to four months in advance.

But Don't Forget Southwest
If you're using a travel site aggregator like Kayak or Travelocity, you're missing a big contender in the Las Vegas flight market. Southwest Airlines does not advertise on those sites but does fly directly to Las Vegas from multiple markets. Before booking you ticket, make sure Southwest can't offer you an easier flight.

Drivers Beware
If you're entering Las Vegas by car, schedule your trip for early weekdays. On Friday night, the traffic to Las Vegas can stretch to the border of Nevada. If you're coming from Los Angeles or a nearby city, it may be worth booking a limo to get into the Vegas frame of mind and avoid driving through the traffic altogether.

And Take the Scenic Route
There's a lot to see on a road trip to Las Vegas, if you're willing to take the time. Rather than rushing to Las Vegas, enjoy a small detour on Route 66 or a drive to the Hoover Dam. Taking your time with your drive will help you arrive relaxed and ready to take on the Entertainment Capital of the World. If you want to head straight to Vegas, thankfully you can also arrange to see these sites from the Strip.

Leap Year and Other Wonders

You're the type of person who celebrates St. Patrick's Day – and you're not even Irish. You roll out the snacks to watch the Big Game – and you don't even follow football. You get into the spirit of events, large and small. And since going to Las Vegas requires a leap of imagination, you shouldn't be surprised to know this city will appeal to your celebratory instincts on leap day, too.

Like all leap years, leap year 2016 takes place on February 29. Make the most of this “bonus day” with myriad activities on and around the Strip.

Marriage requires a leap of faith, and perhaps no one knows this better than the proprietors of the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. They are offering several discounted packages on Feb. 29, including the fittingly named Leap Day Wedding Package. Couples determined to place a good bet on their future can enjoy a two-rose bouquet, boutonniere, courtesy limousine service, the services of a wedding coordinator, music, a candlelight ceremony and a small album of photos. A few openings are still available, but couples who wait too long might have to wait another four years for the opportunity.

You don't have to be a newlywed to enjoy the Leap Year “Get Ahead” Spring Show at Cashman Center, but it may help. Hundreds of exhibitors will do their best to cause the heart of any home enthusiast to do a leap of joy. Among the attractions: kitchen cabinets and counters, energy-efficient doors and windows, window treatments, solar panels, spas, pools, waterfalls and virtually anything a homeowner could want to spruce up their home, indoors or out. There will be so much to do and see that the event will take place over three days preceding leap day: Feb. 26, 27 and 28. Download two-for-one coupons as an extra bonus. 

You would expect some of Las Vegas' most famous hotels and attractions to get in on the leap year frivolities, and they won't disappoint on Feb. 29. "CSI: The Experience" at MGM Grand will offer free admission to anyone with a leap year birthday as well as half-off general admission. (The experience” allows visitors to “solve” mysteries in two state-of-the-art crime labs.) Meanwhile, the Rhumbar in the Mirage will host a patio party from 3 to 7 p.m. with “leap year-inspired drink specials” and dance music announced by DJ Larry Lynx.

If you're a “leapling” – someone who was born on a leap day – you might want to surround yourself with others who can identify with your birthday challenges. Cabo Mexican Restaurant will host a birthday party – complete with cake and champagne – starting at 6:30 p.m. and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas will offer complimentary general admission tickets to anyone who was born on Feb. 29.

No trip to Las Vegas would be complete without a tour of this dazzling city. The city's premier tour listing site – – offers a full array of  tours of Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. The challenge will be picking your favored vantage point; the company offers walking tours as well as tours on bus, Hummer, horseback or by plane or helicopter. Spend the better part of the day on a tour and you can be confident the memories will last another four years.
