    Las Vegas, Nevada

    Shows on "The Strip", world-famous attractions

    It's a packed weekend of solid CME, incredible activities and camaraderie in a fun city that never stands still.

    There is no place in the world like the Las Vegas Strip, the 3 ½-mile-long stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard packed with more than 20 of the world's largest casino-resorts. Many of the hotels, like the Luxor's 30-story, pyramid-shaped main building, are architectural wonders in their own right. At street level, one-of-a-kind spectacles, like the exploding volcano in front of the Mirage and the dancing fountains in front of the Bellagio, compete to attract the attention of passers-by. 

    Tourists from all corners of the globe come here for games of chance, fine dining, or an entertainment extravaganza.

    LAS VEGAS and PARIS – combined. A romantic favorite destination on the Strip, Paris Las Vegas Resort and Casino is home to the Eiffel Tower Experience and a host of top Vegas restaurants, including Gordon Ramsay Steak and Martorano's. Attractions at this dazzling Las Vegas Strip hotel include an opulent health and beauty spa (surcharges), a roof-top outdoor pool and an indoor shopping/dining mall styled like a 1920s Parisian street scene, with shops and restaurants located in charming storefronts.

    Paris Las Vegas Resort and Casino connects to the Art-Deco Bally's via a short interior passage that virtually merges the two hotels. Bally's features rhinestone-bejeweled dancers and classic lounge acts.

    A guided elevator ride (surcharge) whisks guests to the top of the half-scale Eiffel Tower, rising 460 feet above the street. A two-thirds-scale Arc de Triomphe sets the tone at the hotel's entrance. Partial replications of the Louvre, the Paris Opera House, and the Hotel de Ville (city hall) augment the Parisian flavor. All are noteworthy shutterbug opportunities.

    Dining temptations include the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, with panoramic views; a French-inspired buffet; a sidewalk café; and a bistro with alfresco seating.


    Fly your aircraft into KVGT (North Las Vegas Airport). Approximately 2 weeks prior to the meeting, information on arrival and departure, expected service and transportation will be requested from all meeting registrants. Rental cars are available through the FBO if needed.

    Commercial flights arrive at McCarran International Airport (LAS). The airport offers a wide range of transportation options to the Las Vegas Strip, including Uber and Lyft. Travel time to the Paris Hotel is generally 10-15 minutes.
