Heading to Vegas on business? Here’s how to make the most of your trip


Las Vegas is a city like no other; where else in the world can you party ‘til dawn, gamble from breakfast to the next breakfast, and basically live it up until you can’t take it anymore? All within the wonderful surroundings of the barren desert!


The Vegas experience is something everyone needs to have at least once in their lives, and if you find yourself jetting off to this neon-lit city of madness for business, perhaps a convention or conference in one of the large hotels, then you can try and throw in a little leisure too, to get the most out of your time. If you’re in the vicinity, it would be a crime not to enjoy it.


It’s all about grabbing opportunities, and this is one you need to grab with both hands.


If you have no idea where to begin, here’s a few ideas.


Make sure you have a little flutter

Of course, Vegas is one of the big gambling cities in the world, and you won’t struggle to find a slot machine or roulette table to enjoy. Every single hotel has a casino, and many of them dedicate a huge amount of floor space to such activities. Whilst it’s important not to go over the top, having a little flutter is a rite of passage in this city. Of course, many people choose to do their gambling online, through sites such as Kewl Casino, but the bricks and mortar casino experience is one you need to enjoy too. Make time for it, even if it is just one evening or a few hours in the afternoon.


Add a few days onto your trip

You might not be able to do this if you have strict deadlines to return back home for work, but if you do have the scope to be a little flexible, why not add a few leisure days onto the break? This way you get the work side of things finished, and then you’re free to enjoy your time, exploring the city and its many entertainment options, without worrying about work and deadlines. The Grand Canyon is within very easy reach of the city, and this is something you simply have to see – don’t miss the opportunity. Having that iconic photo taken in front of the Las Vegas sign is also a must do.


Free up your evenings

If your convention or conference is a day-time commitment, make sure you make the most of your evenings. You could book tickets to a show, and believe me, a Vegas show is like no other you will experience, or you could head out with some of your work mates for a Vegas night on the tiles. Whatever you choose, make sure you experience the city during your free time, particularly during the evening, when the place truly comes to life.


These are just three suggestions on how you can make sure you actually see some of Las Vegas whilst you’re there, whilst also fulfilling your work commitments.
