Meetings in Reno Tahoe USA

2012-04-21

The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority is making it easier than ever to experience the fantastic meetings and entertainment offerings of Reno Tahoe, at no cost! Qualifying meeting planners can get a personal look at the dozens of unique, resort meeting facilities, as well as the 500,000 sq. ft. Reno-Sparks Convention Center, via our Come See. Fly Free. program. With more than 15,000 convention hotel rooms, and over 1 million sq. ft. of exhibit space, you won’t see it all, but you will most certainly find a venue that fits all your technological, entertainment and budget needs. Visit www.ComeSeeFlyFree.com to see if your meeting qualifies.
 
Speaking of affordability, Reno Tahoe USA brings much more to the table than you might expect, while maintaining across-the-board cost-savings from hotel rooms to catering. Hotel Casino Resorts are in constant competition, which means you can reap the benefits. Meeting rooms, hotel rooms, restaurants and entertainment offering are continuously analyzed and upgraded to keep up with the standards of the national travel and meetings industries. In fact, Reno Tahoe properties have recently invested over $500 million, with a large portion of that going toward meetings technology as well as meetings and hotel room renovations and expansions. Hotel rooms are currently experiencing average rates of less than 30% of competing destinations, and throughout Reno Tahoe you can get a gallon of coffee for under $40 a gallon. And everyone will love FREE parking and FREE hotel shuttles.
 
The owner-operator model of the RSCVA also translates to more money-making opportunities for your next event, as well as ease of doing business. The RSCVA manages the Reno-Sparks Convention Center; Reno Events Center; Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center; and WIldcreek Golf Course, attracting a broad range of meetings, conventions and sporting events, while relaxed labor rules keep costs around 20% lower than the national average. This also presents opportunities for an association-wide golf tournament, or a private concert in the 6,000-seat Reno Events Center. The opportunities are endless.
 
With more than 140 daily flights to 17 non-stop destinations, getting here couldn’t be easier. Reno-Tahoe International Airport was recently named the second-most efficient airport in the U.S. and Canada, and a $40 million project to improve its baggage claim area and add restaurants and retail space is currently underway.
 
Lake Tahoe is consistently voted as one of the most beautiful places in the U.S., and even the world, and its shores are less than an hour away from when your plane touches down. Eighteen world-class ski resorts and more than 50 golf courses are all less than 90 minutes away from the airport as well. In the Reno area, everything you need is just a 10-minute drive away. From the beautiful Truckee River White Water Park and the Riverwalk district in the heart of downtown, to the home of our AAA baseball team, Reno Aces Stadium and to the inviting outdoor shopping districts of Sparks and south Reno, there are more than enough activities to keep you occupied during any down time you might have or need. Local bars and casinos keep things interesting 24-hours a day, and world-class entertainment is always just a phone call away.
