For first-timers

Traveling to Las Vegas for the first time can be overwhelming. It takes time to plan your travel route, show action plan and social activities. Luckily, there are a vast amount of blogs, articles, lists and more to help you maximise your time in Las Vegas.

What Not to Do in Las Vegas provides an essential list of things to avoid doing in Las Vegas, like jaywalking, using ATM’s in the casinos and hailing a cab on the strip.

How to dress for Las Vegas

Las Vegas is located in the middle of Nevada’s Mojave Desert, which makes the weather dry, hot and unforgiving. For an accurate forecast, check the latest 10 day weather forecast. Regardless of the climate outside, the hotels and congress centre are air-conditioned. If you’re not used to it, we suggest bringing a small sweater or cardigan with you to the show floor.

Comfortable shoes and smart casual clothing in a style that accentuates your personality is essential when packing for IMEX America. 

Transport to and around Las Vegas

We regularly update show and travel details on our travel and accommodations page. 

Time Out’s blogpost Las Vegas public transportation guide also provides an overview on the transport options available to you on and off the strip.
