Las Vegas Can Now Host Conventions with Up to 1,000 Attendees

Nevada’s Governor Sisolak just announced that gatherings of up to 1,000 attendees can happen in Las Vegas.


In a press conference, Governor Sisolak outlined that gatherings of up to 250 are now allowed. 

If a venue has the capacity to keep cohorts of 250 attendees, the limit goes up to 1,000 for a total of four groups. This limit applies to conventions.

No mingling allowed, no mixing of the groups, distancing and masks measures have to be respected. Planners need to seek approval for such meetings.

Certain large venues such as the T-mobile Arena can apply for a 10% capacity allowance.

The news comes as the Silver state has plateaued in COVID-19 cases from its peak in July.

While this is definitely a sign of restart for the devastated sector of meetings and conventions in Las Vegas, questions still remains on the confidence of planners to book business in a ‘destination’ city.

Las Vegas in most cases requires travel. Regional business can kickstart the comeback but national and international business travel still remain unlikely.
