Highest Rated Corporate Meeting Venues in Las Vegas

There’s a reason Las Vegas means business. According to Cevent, the city has 3 of the world’s largest convention centers and has almost 200 hotels to choose from for corporate events and conferences. It can be time-consuming to find the best corporate meeting venues in Las Vegas, so here’s a narrowed-down list of 5 popular locations (plus a bonus).

Mandalay Bay

Altogether Las Vegas has over 10.8 million square feet of meeting space. Mandalay Bay’s exhibition hall commands 577,173 square feet of that. If your corporate event won’t take up that much room but you still want to take advantage of the resort’s luxurious surrounding, there are meeting rooms small enough for under 100 people.

Group size: 74 to over 10,000 people.

Mt. Charleston Lodge

The Strip isn’t for everyone or every meeting. If you want your attendees to get a taste of something different without venturing too far from the action, travel 30 minutes north to Mt. Charleston Lodge. This cozy cabin is nestled in beautiful scenery that’s a breath of fresh air from the stereotypical Vegas event.

Group size: Up to 28 people.

Las Vegas Convention Center

Alright, this entry is expected on a list about Las vegas corporate event venues. With 144 meeting rooms and 3.2 million square feet of total space, the Las Vegas Convention Center has become a staple in the convention and events industry.

Group size: 20 to 2,500 people.

Green Valley Ranch

Travel just outside city lines to Henderson for this easier-to-swallow Vegas experience. Green Valley Ranch’s meeting and conference space is accessible without being forced to walk through the casino floor (though that option’s always there). They even offer outdoor space without the distractions you’d find on the Strip.

Group size: 50 to 5,000 people.

Thomas & Mack Center

This UNLV campus venue is home to rodeos, bull riding and motor cross. It’s certainly an iconic taste of Las Vegas without being too conventional. The Thomas & Mack Center hosts private and corporate events with 8 meeting space options ranging from the arena set up to standard conference rooms.

Group size: 60 to 2,200 people.

Bonus - Something Different: The Historic Fifth Street School

Nestled in the not-as-glittery downtown section of Las Vegas, the school is one of the few remaining examples of mission style architecture. The Fifth Street School is culturally beautiful and functional for events. It houses outdoor space, an auditorium, a gallery/exhibition area and conference rooms to accommodate a multitude of event needs.

Group size: 30 to 400 people.

Whichever corporate event venue you book, your attendees will have something to write home about. Make sure they have more to say about your meeting than the casinos by renting up-to-date technology like video walls and iPads.
