Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Global Travel & Tourism Summit

When The JGS Group was chosen to create and produce the most influential travel and tourism event of the year in the entire planet, the Global Travel & Tourism Summit, the company immediately knew what not to do. No pipe and drape, no simple hotel-provided podium, no single projection screen.

Global Travel & Tourism Summit

Rather, JGS needed to create a spectacular experience for the 1,000 delegates coming from around the globe that would never let them forget they were in Las Vegas.

Set in MGM Resorts International’s showcase CityCenter property, Aria, the company created a stadium-style venue-in-the-round on a circle with nine rows high. The stage floor itself was a large replica of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada” sign.

Every delegate was about 60 feet from the center of the stage.
12 x 23 foot, high-definition projection screens featured speakers and special video presentations. And between those screens were two 10 x 100 foot Las Vegas skyline murals depicting most of the city’s resort properties.

Two additional 11 x 45 foot projection surfaces carried icons and images supporting each speaker.
At each seat attendees found MP3 players and headphones which allowed them to listen to the Summit in English, Japanese or Mandarin.

The feel was international, the look totally Las Vegas and the flawless execution purely The JGS Group.
