Read what Allen Oakley, Kuoni’s resident Adrenaline Junkie and exceptionally resourceful Account Executive, has to say about Las Vegas.
Las Vegas will always be famous for its neon lights, its world famous casino hotels and for nonstop action and fun. Yet, there is so much more to Las Vegas! We see joy and surprise on the faces of our clients’ guests when they experience a Kuoni-designed tour of the Hoover Dam or helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon! People do not usually think of Las Vegas for river rafting, but a trip down the Colorado River sure makes for great memories (and great social media pics)! A good-for-your-head hike in beautiful Red Rock Canyon or that rush you feel when racing a 600HP NASCAR vehicle at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway are two more examples of non-typical, unforgettable Las Vegas experiences. The amazing truth is that you can return year after year to Las Vegas and do something completely different for your group each time.
Shining bright on the Las Vegas Strip is the 550 foot high “High Roller!” The world’s tallest observation wheel is a true standout at The Linq promenade, located in the center of the Strip -- one of Las Vegas’ newest attractions. Guests just love to stand against the window and take in the amazing view!
And don’t forget about the original Las Vegas, Fremont Street! There’s a new surge in the Downtown area which includes the centerpiece of Downtown Las Vegas, The Smith Center, a world class performing arts center. The Downtown Container Park is just too, too cool. It’s made completely out of shipping containers stacked on top of one another, and it offers a variety of boutique shops and food outlets. Hosting an evening concert in its outdoor amphitheater always offers a thrilling, exclusive experience for a private group.
I have been fortunate to be able to design and manage events in Las Vegas (both off and on the Strip) for more than 10 years. I really believe that no other city can compete with our selection of venues, restaurants, shopping, or our concerts and shows. No matter what your program’s theme is, no matter what kind of corporate culture you have, and no matter what you’re looking to accomplish with your meeting, event or incentive program – Kuoni can develop a spot-on Las Vegas experience for you every time. Viva Las Vegas!
