becoming known as the playground capital of the world, Nevada has come a long
way from the days of Meyer Lansky, but not far from his vision of what could have
Most famous, of course, is Las Vegas, which now hosts two of America's largest
annual conventions. Not only has this party town become a home base for high stake
rollers it has also reinvented itself to offer ideal business settings as well
as family fun. Something for everyone!
For women business travelers, Las Vegas is ideal for a West Coast meeting that
requires entertainment without having to fly into Los Angeles. It's especially
compatible with those business travelers who enjoy the amazing beauty of desert
paired with snow-covered mountains and seek an escape route after a long week
of meetings. Vegas is as safe as they come for a big city, but like any big city,
watch yourself at night and stay out of dark alleys. Otherwise, it's a great place
for work and play.
