Las Vegas is a destination that has basically everything. It doesn’t matter really what you like, Vegas has something to offer you. Some people see it as a sinful place that is bad for its gambling and partying, hence why they call it “Sin City” but I see the city in a whole other angle that makes it special; It’s a place to do business.
Las Vegas is a place that I enjoy visiting and after my most recent trip there, it’s a place I see myself visiting a lot more often. The one thing that Vegas has that not many other cities in the world have is that its a destination that people from all over the world want to come to visit. If you are in business in Vegas this is a huge advantage. One I frankly think is not leveraged as much as it could or should be by businesses currently in Vegas or looking to relocate there.
You don’t have to convince people to come to your event or come visit your business when you have it in Vegas. Vegas has all the action and something literally for everyone. If you operate a business, live here, or want to start something here this is a huge plus when starting out.
Obviously, keep in mind that having an event here can definitely be a lot more costly than other cities but it’s very comparable to other major cities around the world like New York or London.
After I started to see Vegas in a whole other light, a more business and opportunistic side, this is where I started to see the real value and potential it possesses. There is so much more than the glitz and glamour of the strip.
There are world-class hotels and restaurants at every corner and countless places to house a coffee meeting, workshop, full-scale conference, or just a great place to work from.
What Makes the Nomad Hotel in Vegas Different
Now not everyone’s the same as me but I know that when I travel for business and stay in a hotel, the location and amenities are a huge selling point for me at my destination. You don’t want to be totally out of the action but you want to be in a place that is cozy, professional and has a good bar or restaurant for you to host meetings at.
At the NoMad Hotel, they have exactly this. Their bar was rated recently as a top bar in the world. I had a few drinks there and some food during a few meetings and it provides a great atmosphere just off the strip to have some drinks in a laid-back hotel that makes you feel like you’re not even in Vegas. This is something unique and at times hard to find in Vegas.
The Ability to Work from Anywhere
With our workforce growing more mobile by each passing day, it’s important for businesses of all shapes, sizes, and industries to make everything they do attractive to people on the go.
Office spaces are continuing to become a collective workspace for more than one company or person, and more businesses are getting rid of the office altogether. Here at Influencive, we operate a remote workforce with members of the team stationed all over the world.
This leaves an amazing opportunity open for local businesses in cities and towns to create a space that is inviting for business people to hold meetings, stay at for conferences, and feel comfortable while not looking or feeling like a usual hotel that everyone comes to know.
NoMad Hotel has done this tremendously well because it offers a classy establishment, right off the strip that is comfortable for people of all ages and is a great place for a traveling business person or local entrepreneur to set up shop at for the day or night.
Keep in mind that it doesn’t matter if you operate a restaurant, hotel, office space, or grocery store; all of these businesses are being driven by new innovations and consumer preferences. The preference of the future is mobility and I think it’s time you take a play out of the MGM Hotels playbook and build a place that feels like a home office on the road. This is the type of place that us traveling entrepreneurs of today want to stay at.
