Safety and Security at Informa Events in Las Vegas

We were shocked and saddened by the tragic events that occurred in Las Vegas on October 1st, 2017.  Las Vegas is a city where we have a rich history; a city that is very close to our hearts. First and foremost, we wanted to reassure you that safety and security continue to be a top priority for us, now more than ever. Our commitment to safety is reflected through rigorous and regular analysis of the security of our venues, and comprehensive venue security audits. In light of recent events, our partners at MGM Resorts International have assured us that their team is working tirelessly to protect the safety of our guests. While we don't typically feel it's prudent to share the details of our security plans, we did want to outline a few ways that we are enhancing security protocols in concert with Mandalay Bay. They include:

  • Increasing security presence at critical locations
  • Conducting additional K-9 sweeps of major public gathering areas
  • Enhancing local law enforcement presence on property
  • Restricting vehicle parking on or near the hotel perimeter
  • Selective vehicle searches
  • 24-hour key checks at guest elevator lobby
  • Maintaining active surveillance of critical locations

Guest security continues to be at the forefront of our minds, and something we are working on unremittingly at all of our events. If you have any questions about your safety, or the safety of one of our partner venues, please do not hesitate to reach out.
