Las Vegas Convention Survival Guide

Las Vegas hosts thousands of conventions every year. Between convention activities, after-hours shows, gambling and other fun pursuits, you’re sure to have an exhilarating experience. The following tips will help you prepare for your busy week:

The Las Vegas Strip at dusk
Wear Comfortable Shoes
You’ll be doing plenty of walking, so comfortable shoes are a must. The Las Vegas Strip is walk-able, but the buildings seem closer together than when you’re actually walking the four-mile stretch of the Las Vegas Boulevard. The average convention goer walks nearly 4 miles per day, so if your shoes are less than comfortable, you’ll soon have aching feet and possibly blisters. Bring a pair of dressier shoes in your suitcase for a special dinner or other event, but wear comfortable shoes for the majority of your trip.

Dress in Layers
Dressing in layers lets you prepare for any type of weather and indoor tempera
ture. Las Vegas can be blazing hot in the summer, but layers will prepare you for colder rooms in air-conditioned convention centers and hotels.

Pack Snacks
Packing some snacks will help you save time and money throughout your trip. Slip a granola bar, small bag of almonds, or similar healthy snacks into your bag. This will help you keep your energy up throughout the entire day, a must since you’re likely to be on the go until the evening. Just make sure your snack isn’t chocolate, since you could end up with a melted mess!

Even though you may do a lot of walking in Vegas, you'll probably also do a lot of sitting! From the plane ride to lengthy meetings, you may find yourself sitting for long periods of time. In addition to walking, visit your hotel’s fitness center or watch fitness videos in your room to get a quick workout in. If you’re exercising outside, wear plenty of sunscreen and not overdo it.

Bring your Chargers
You’ll need access to your phone throughout your trip, and you may need to  your bring laptop in the convention center. Don’t assume either will hold a charge for an entire day. Bring your phone and laptop chargers with you so your devices will work at all times. Some convention centers will have mobile phone charging stations, but the lines are likely to be long.
