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.”

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
