The fourth blog in our event space series, check out our favorite places in NYC here!
Like real estate, event marketing is location, location, location. Sure, with the right team of creative strategists and designers, you can turn a parking lot into a carnival or a trade show booth into a donut creation station, but the space sets the tone for your entire experience. When you think of Las Vegas, of course, the neon lights of The Strip with all of its entertainment options is the first thought that comes to mind -- followed by casinos, nightclubs, 24-hour buffets, and little white wedding chapels. By hosting an event in Las Vegas, you're inviting your guests to not only experience your brand, but also explore the world's most famous adult playground.
Whether your next brand activation is a concert, a VIP dinner, a private experience, or a public stunt, here are some of our favorite Las Vegas event spaces for your next brand experience:

Perched atop the Cromwell Hotel in the center of The Strip, Drai’s features breathtaking views of the iconic Sin City skyline. With 65,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor space, this nightclub offers lots of options for décor and entertainment. Hello! Las Vegas hosted a party for meeting planners featuring poolside dining and a spectacular lip- sync contest in the nightclub.
The space can hold 2565 seated or 4500 standing, making it a great option for large groups. The massive LED lighting systems are ultra-customizable, and can be used to display corporate branding to great effect. Guests will be blown away by the 80-sided LED disco ball – the only one of its kind, and the opportunity to detonate custom rooftop firework shows. Drai’s truly is a next-level nightlife experience that will make your parties unforgettable.
2. Brooklyn Bowl

No, we haven't ventured back to the East Coast, but to an unlikely venue on The Strip. Forget about casino ballrooms and the Bellagio Fountains and instead opt for an unexpected setting for your next soirée at the Brooklyn Bowl. One of the area’s most coveted concert venues, the Brooklyn Bowl’s claim to fame (aside from the killer musical acts it brings in) is the fact it offers private VIP bowling lanes for guests to enjoy while they dance the night away to the sounds from a stage just feet away.
Worth mentioning? The Brooklyn Bowl boasts Blue Ribbon fried chicken and out-of-this-world Bourbon Milkshakes—making it a perfect venue for all the foodies in attendance. You can even rent out the entire space for an event for up to 3,000 attendees.
3. Keep Memory Alive Event Center

For the socially-conscious brand that wants to support a great cause while hosting their event in a stunning setting, check out Keep Memory Alive Event Center. Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, this 9,200-square-foot space offers an off-Strip events venue like no other in the entire city. It boasts a 75-foot ceiling donning 199 windows in all different shapes and sizes, Frank Gehry-designed custom furnishings, an LED lighting system (that can set the entire space ablaze in any hue of your choosing), and space for 450 guests for a seated affair (or 700 standing).
Known for its striking architecture, personalized service, and unprecedented attention to detail, events here truly make for unparalleled affairs. The best part, though? Proceeds from events held at the Keep Memory Alive Center help support the research, treatment, and prevention of brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

The huge, soaring facility under construction at MGM Grand Hotel can be seen from miles away, and it’s like a driving range on steroids.

The entire ceiling is a high-tech moving chandelier, which transforms to look like a spaceship landing on the dance floor.
