Stop the presses and alert the media! It’s official! Destination Fabulous, Las Vegas’ newest destination management company, is now open for business.
As the Founder and President of Destination Fabulous DMC, I’m proud and honored to introduce you to “my town:” Las Vegas. There’s simply no better place in the world for meetings, events, entertainment, shows, fine dining, and around-the-clock activities. That’s why I always say: “What happens in Vegas…should be fabulous!”
I’ll take you behind the scenes and give you the latest inside info on what’s happening in the Entertainment Capital of the World. The hottest shows, trendiest nightspots, coolest venues and the biggest stars are my expertise and passion. Destination Fabulous is your “all-access pass” to the Vegas that I live, breathe, and know 24/7.
So let’s get started!
First off, I’m pleased to report that I will be at the upcoming blockbuster IMEX America Exhibition & Conference at the Sands Expo Center adjacent to the Venetian/Palazzo here in Las Vegas Oct. 14-16. Be sure to drop by my booth to say hello. And watch for my upcoming blog on IMEX next month where I’ll share more details about our exhibit booth, our industry press conference, and special surprise guests!
As Las Vegas shakes off the after-effects of its long Great Recession hangover, it’s great to see a rebirth up and down the Las Vegas Strip and around town. Let’s start with the newest property to debut on the south end of the Strip: The Delano.
After an $80 million makeover of the former “THE Hotel” at Mandalay Bay, the Delano Las Vegas debuts as an exclusive, refined, and elegant hotel with all the lux amenities you’d expect from chic boutique resort operator, The Morgan Group. Featuring a Miami South Beach vibe, eclectic décor, and French chef extraordinaire Alain Ducasse’s Mix at the top of the Delano’s striking gold 43-story tower. Congratulations on what’s sure to be one of the city’s trendiest and most successful new boutique hotels.
And speaking of congratulations, let’s take a trip to the other end of the Strip for a big shout out to Sam Nazarian of the SBE Group on the completion of his stunning $400 million renovation of the historic Sahara Hotel & Casino. The new SLS Las Vegas is an extraordinary tour de force that takes a legendary Las Vegas address and transforms it into a truly legendary new experience that is totally fresh, exciting and a bold re-definition of Vegas NOW!
Let’s not forget the re-boot of the former Barbary Coast/Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall on Vegas’ hottest four corners at the center of the Strip, across from Caesars and next door to the Flamingo, the Linq promenade, and the world’s tallest observation wheel: High Roller.
Re-christened The Cromwell, this hip, cozy boutique resort casino features 188 Parisian-inspired luxury rooms, Drai’s rooftop Beach Club overlooking the Strip, and Giada – The Restaurant, a dazzling and sophisticated eatery created by Emmy award-winning celebrity chef, Giada De Laurentis.
Finally, let’s leave the fabulous Strip and head westward across the sprawling Las Vegas valley to what is sure to become the new epicenter of shopping, dining and fashion: Downtown Summerlin.
One of the newest and largest mixed-use retail, residential, and entertainment projects in the U.S., Downtown Summerlin will feature 125 shops and department stores in both open-air and indoor shopping environments. Anchored by Macy’s and Dillard’s, this massive development will also feature a host of hip, trendy shops, boutiques, and restaurants; from American Eagle Outfitters and Nordstrom Rack to White House | Black Market, and Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill.
So if you’re looking for the most sensational entertainment productions, unsurpassed event production, the most spectacular meeting space options, memorable Las Vegas group activities, or the ultimate in luxury transportation services, the only destination offering all this – and more – is: “Destination Fabulous.”
