“I think you’re the best employee we have to represent our company at that Las Vegas convention.”
With these words, your boss just sealed your fate. Instantly, your mind starts to conjure visions of endless hours of walking around a convention floor making small talk and smiling to people you don’t know.
Convention duty is unavoidable. In any other city, it can feel like work. But conventions in Las Vegas are a different animal; they are conventions on steroids. It’s not all work; after you finish your business duties, you will find casinos, shows, dining at some of the world’s best restaurants, and endless dancing at the hottest clubs.
Check out the three tips below to help you make the most of your Las Vegas convention experience, whether this is your first convention in Las Vegas or you’ve been doing it for a long time.
1. Travel light but don’t forget a watch!
You’ll never hear the words “last call” in Las Vegas bars and pubs. Casinos don’t have windows or clocks. Time flies, and before you know it, it’s 4 a.m. These days, many people opt to go watch-less, relying on their smart phone to tell the time. Vegas is place where you may want to stick to a timely tradition. Wear a watch when you go out – and don’t forget to check it often so you don’t end up dependent on energy drinks, cologne, and breath mints to save face the next day on the convention floor.
2. Do your soles a favor – Rent a mobility scooter
In Las Vegas, convention floors extend for thousands and thousands of square feet of. The Las Vegas Convention Center alone has 2 million square feet of exhibit space. If you’re coming for a large convention, chances are you will be doing A LOT of walking. The walking will also be on concrete floors, which means your feet will be on fire next morning from standing and walking.
At the very least, choose comfortable shoes, but if you’d really like to give your feet a break, you can use a mobility scooter rental service in Las Vegas. Scooters are convenient and fast, and allow you to move around with ease. Renting a scooter is incredibly easy to do through www.getaroundmobility.com. First, you place the order online. A Get Around Mobility representative will confirm your reservation the day prior to your reservation. Finally, the scooter will be delivered straight to your hotel and waiting for you at the bell desk. Scooters are convenient, comfortable and even a bit of fun.
3. The Vegas dress code
Spend some time on your wardrobe; you might get chilly from the copious amount of air conditioning. There are two types of attires. There is business attire, and then there’s Vegas attire. For your best interest, bring both. For the daytime, ensure that you bring your business clothes and comfortable shoes. For the rest of your time in Vegas, bring some stylish choices for the night.
