party by the pool

Unveiled in April 2019, this Greek-inspired oasis is part of a recent reimagination of the Palms Casino Resort property. With luxe cabanas, plenty of bars, and inspired design you won’t find anywhere else in Las Vegas, it’s an event to see and be seen.

Dress: casual/trendy cocktail

One ticket to Party by the Pool is included with each experience pass, or add a ticket to your registration a la carte. View ticket prices here.

the young entrepreneurs breakfast

2021 date TBA

Hospitality Design magazine’s past Wave of the Future honorees—those who are young enough to be considered visionaries, yet tested enough to be considered accomplished—talk trends, lessons learned, industry challenges and solutions, and what’s on the boards (and recently finished) in an informal, yet engaging breakfast conversation produced in collaboration with NEWH, Inc.
