Night on the Strip
Although the bulk of our core convention activities are focused on Downtown Las Vegas and its renaissance, what would a trip to Las Vegas be without an evening on the glittering Strip, just 4 miles away?
On Wednesday, October 7, our evening a la carte option is a Night on the Strip—dinner and a show, including transportation, at an unbeatable price:
Transportation for this evening will depart the Downtown Grand approximately 6:00 p.m., for dinner starting at 6:30. Your entertainment choices will include many of the top resident shows—most of these performances start at 9:00 or 9:30. Your Night on the Strip will conclude with transportation back to the Downtown Grand at approximately 11:00 p.m.
Select your preferred show from the list below. We have a limited number of tickets for each show.
You will also have the option of selecting dinner only, which may offer a more leisurely meal, and the opportunity to explore the Strip on your own until the coaches depart around 11:00 p.m. (or you may opt for a taxi back downtown earlier or later, at your own cost). You’ll have a ticket to use the Las Vegas Monorail, if you want to travel to other Strip locations.
Final dinner options will be assigned the first week of August, when all tours are confirmed by email. (Note that you will have the opportunity to select your dining preferences for the Downtown Dine-Around on Monday, October 5—this event is included in core convention registration and separate from the Night on the Strip).
