What's Next, Las Vegas?
"Over the last 10 years, the dawn of the Las Vegas supper-club and celebrity-chef restaurant has been at the forefront of the city's entertainment evolution," says Kess. "We believe that Las Vegas' evolution in the years to come will be defined by projects like the new Resorts World [Las Vegas] casino (now scheduled to open in 2019); the advent of the city's first professional sports team [hockey], including whispers of others to come; and the likely continuation of the aforementioned trends already in play." And some of these trends fall outside of the city lights because Las Vegas has a wealth of adventure experiences available for group tours.

Golf lovers can now hit the links at Topgolf, at the MGM Grand. This four-level, 105,000-square-foot space is home to 108 climate-controlled hitting bays, two swimming pools and cabanas, a concert venue, VIP suites, five bars, plus special-event spaces. Helicopter tours are a memorable way for visitors to get around. Hop on one of Maverick Helicopters' flights for a tour of the city and the natural beauty beyond it. The tour doesn't fly in Red Rock Canyon, but does do flights to the Grand Canyon, Valley of Fire, and, of course, flights over the Strip.

If off-roading appeals, check out SunBuggy Las Vegas -- an ATV tour company, providing free shuttle service to and from resorts for its clients, or groups can select VIP private limo service. To date, there are eight tours offered, and SunBuggy is the only operation allowed by the Parks Department to provide scenic tours of the Valley of Fire State Park.

One thing is for certain: Las Vegas always has something to offer, and luxury here can be defined in many ways, but "Las Vegas can be overwhelming due to the sheer amount of entertainment options it avails," reminds Kess. "To be sure, one of the best ways to ensure clients have the best possible experience is to keep things new and exciting for them."
