Earlier this year, we created the ‘City Within A City’ video series to uncover what meeting planners are doing to create immersive event environments at The Venetian in Las Vegas.
During the IMEX America conference, The Venetian® event team wanted to create an unforgettable night for a select group of guests by transforming the hotel’s privately-owned airplane hangar into a multi-sensory event space.
“Just like anyone else, meeting attendees want stories to tell. They want to go home and be able to say, you won’t believe what I just experienced,” said Chandra Allison, senior vice president of sales at The Venetian. Guests were invited to tour the inside of these luxury planes, enjoy craft cocktails and watch a band perform on top of a tow tractor.
“You know that one great party you went to five years ago that you still talk about when you’re at a dinner? That was the feeling evoked by the hanger party,” said Allison.
Watch the video below to discover how The Venetian created an unforgettable evening for attendees.
