More Than 300 Meeting Professionals Come Together for Meetings & Events Las Vegas Winter 2013 Event
For Immediate Release:
For the first time this year, Meetings & Events Las Vegas held its quarterly event, a mixer soirée that brings event planners, hospitality vendors and industry professionals together. More than 300 meeting professionals attended the winter event held at the Bagatelle Las Vegas adjacent to the Tropicana Hotel along the Las Vegas Strip, once again proving that the event-planning industry is flourishing in 2013.

Although each event has a different theme, the goal remains the same: to connect meeting planner clients with hospitality suppliers and industry professionals. This season’s event at Bagtelle Las Vegas allowed for attendees to mingle at their leisure while sampling from a menu offering a variety of delicious dishes inspired by Southern France and the Riviera.

“At every quarterly event Meeting Planner Resources selects a local nonprofit organization to support,” says Jennifer Mahar, associate publisher for Meetings & Events Las Vegas. The proceeds raised through raffle prizes generously donated by many industry leaders help aid a charitable cause. This event’s recipient was Opportunity Village, which is a not-for-profit organization that serves people in the Southern Nevada community with intellectual disabilities, enhancing their lives and the lives of the families who love them. Through vocational training, community employment, day services, advocacy, arts and social recreation, citizens with severe disabilities are able to find new friends, realize future career paths, seek independence and community integration and unleash creative passions.

Mahar adds, “All of our partners made some very generous donations and because of that we were able to raise enough money to enable Opportunity Village to continue to pursue its mission.”

“On behalf of the 1,700 clients we serve at Opportunity Village,” says Resource Development Coordinator Sandy Ellis, “I would like to thank-you for the lovely event held at the Bagatelle with proceeds going to Opportunity Village. We are so lucky to have supporters, such as the members of Meetings & Events Las Vegas, who take the time to support our organization. All of the funds donated go directly to support the programs and services and clients that we serve every day. Thank you for MELV’s recognition of Opportunity Village.”

With the continued success of the quarterly events, Meetings & Events Las Vegas is anxiously awaiting the spring 2013 mixer, scheduled for May 2. For more information about upcoming events and to register for the spring event, visit www.MeetingsAndEventsLasVegas.com/rsvp/.
