More Than 200 Meeting Professionals Come Together for Meetings & Events Las Vegas Fall Event
For Immediate Release:
Meetings & Events Las Vegas held its fourth quarterly event of 2012 at The Pub at the Monte Carlo Las Vegas Resort and Casino. Located on the Street of Dreams, The Pub is the go-to spot at the Monte Carlo for great food, beer, sports and an all-around good time. The fall event on November 1st brought more than 200 event planners, hospitality vendors and industry professionals together, once again proving that the event-planning industry and Meetings & Events Las Vegas are prospering in 2012.

Although each Meetings & Events Las Vegas event has a different theme, the goal remains the same: to connect meeting planner clients with hospitality suppliers and industry professionals. Unique to this event, guests were greeted with themed Blue Smoke specialty cocktails and had the opportunity to tour the property prior to the event.

“On behalf of The Pub and the Monte Carlo sales team, we would like to thank everyone for coming to the MELV event on November first,” says The Pub Sales and Promotions Manager Jovana Dakic. “It was a great success and a pleasure meeting each and every one of you. We also appreciate those who supported the Make-A-Wish Foundation that evening.”

As an added bonus, more than 100 of the event attendees were invited to experience the new Blue Man Group show with a private meet-and-greet after the performance.

“At every quarterly event, Meeting Planner Resources selects a local nonprofit organization to support,” says Jennifer Mahar, Associate Publisher for Meetings & Events Las Vegas. 100% of the proceeds raised through a raffle of prizes generously donated by many industry leaders always go to aid a charitable cause. For this event, Meetings & Events Las Vegas selected the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the premier wish-granting organization for children with life-threatening conditions, in support of 17-year-old Katherine O., who suffers from cystic fibrosis, which among other things has caused the dental anomaly of four missing permanent teeth. The Make-A-Wish staff has started working on finding dental specialists to do the makeover Katherine needs, which will be completed in January with the help of James K. Rogers DDS, MS from Canyon Ridge Periodontics.

To make Katherine’s wish even more unforgettable, this event raised nearly $2,500 in raffle proceeds and other donated items. While here in Las Vegas fulfilling her wish, Meeting & Events Las Vegas was able to arrange for La Quinta Inns and Suites to cover Katherine’s hotel stay the night of the event. Plus, she will get to participate in a photo shoot for which Breanna Stubbs at the Cristophe salon will do her hair and the Canyon Ranch SpaClub at the Venetian will provide a spa package for a manicure and pedicure. She also will get to enjoy racing at the indoor Pole Position Raceway, experience the living history of The Mob Attraction, eat at Hash House a Go Go and rub elbows with celebrities at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. Nevada Ballet Theatre also provided two tickets for her to see The Nutcracker.

“This event’s partners included Bally’s Las Vegas, Barbra and Frank: The Concert That Never Was, Blue Man Group, Bootleg Canyon Flightlines, Callaway Golf, Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar, Fremont Street Flightlinez, Hard Rock Café, Hash House A Go Go, Mob Attraction Las Vegas, National Atomic Testing Museum, Nevada Ballet Theatre, The Pub at Monte Carlo, Vegas Indoor Skydiving and the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop,” says Mahar, “All of these partners made some very generous raffle donations, and because of that we were able to raise enough money to enable the Make-A-Wish Foundation to continue to pursue its mission and make Katherine’s wish come true.”

With tears of joy in her eyes when she learned of the additional gifts she was receiving along with her wish, Katherine remarked, “I am so overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity shown to me to make my wish so extra special.”

With the continued success of the quarterly events, Meetings & Events Las Vegas anxiously is awaiting the winter 2013 mixer, scheduled for February 7. For more information about upcoming events and to register for the fall event, visit:
