Las Vegas is unique in so many ways, but when it comes to trade shows venues, I would have to say that we surpass any other city in the country. With three major convention facilities and dozens of hotels that all have their own convention arenas, we have millions of square feet to work with! Las Vegas Convention Center 3.2 million square feet Mandalay Bay Convention Center 1.5 million square feet Sands Expo & Convention Center 1.8 million square feet Now if you include all of the hotels and their convention areas, we have well over 7 million square feet of trade show space! Thats enough room to host some of the worlds largest conventions like: CES Consumer Electronics Show ConExpo/ConAgg Mine Expo NAB National Association of Broadcaster Each convention facility is located either within or within steps of one of Las Vegas premier hotel/casino resorts. The Las Vegas Convention Center is located within steps of the Las Vegas Hilton with its 3rd floor, rooftop swimming pool with magnificent views of the Las Vegas Strip. The Hilton also features fine dinning at TJs Steak House and the world famous Benihana Village where the chefs perform nightly at your table!
