The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo have partnered with Zappos to offer guests access to a pop-up co-working space in The Venetian | The Palazzo Congress Center.

The 1,170-square-foot pop-up lounge provides a space to recharge, areas to collaborate and a small conference room for meetings. It is enclosed to maintain noise levels but with transparent walls to make it more inviting. The entire space is furnished by Restoration Hardware.

“Our co-working pop-up taps into a growing trend of creating collaborative workspaces that can be used on a temporary basis in addition to traditional offices,” says Lisa Marchese, chief marketing officer, The Venetian and The Palazzo. “We know this unexpected amenity, with its comfort and functionality will appeal to our guests and help them maximize their time while they are here for a meeting or convention.”

The pop-up lounge will feature Wi-Fi, charging stations, four private phone rooms and a conference room that seats six. It is located on the second level of The Venetian | Palazzo Conference Center and is open daily from 9:9 a.m.–5 p.m.

“Co-working encourages the sharing of ideas and what better place to do that than in the middle of the largest meeting space in Las Vegas,” says Maggie Hsu, an advisor at Zappos. “Our team members will be staffing the lounge and will share the Zappos service philosophy of delivering happiness with every ‘collision’ they make with a guest.”

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
