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.”

Kimpton EPIC Hotel has heard the cry of meeting and event attendees everywhere. The all too familiar ice-cold event space makes it extremely difficult to stay focused. It might only be 30 minutes into the meeting when guests start to look anxious as they fight back goosebumps.

 

Airport-friendly hotels’ proximity and amenities add up for extra convenience for planners.

 

PCMA has announced its proposed 2020 Board of Directors and Officers.
