They enticed visitors
The marketing strategy comes as Las Vegas businesses work to make up for lost revenue during the long months of the pandemic that led to cancellations of deferred conventions and events.
According to the local newspaper Review-Journal, attendance at the congress was at 0 flats in June compared to 514,000 the same month last year.
In July, CES, the world’s largest consumer electronics show, announced that its January 2021 event will be digital and will not take place in Las Vegas. Last week, Electric Daisy Carnival joined the growing list of events that canceled or spurred major events due to coronavirus concerns.
Covid-19 cases across Nevada are on the rise. In Clark County, where Las Vegas is located alone, 48,466 Covid cases and 807 deaths have been reported so far. This according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University.
Vegas resorts and casinos are making changes to prevent proliferation and create a safe environment for guests.
In Bellagio, MGM Resorts is looking for temperature controls in the hotel lobby before inviting guests. Masks are also required in public places of the property.
Bellagio even wrapped real sinks with soap, water and paper towels on the casino floor. Cleaning crews were constantly seen clearing slot machines and plexiglass barriers installed in board games. The changes are also noticeable inside the rooms, where the in-room dining menus have been replaced with QR codes.
Call of the working week
MGM Resorts said it hopes the new Vegas work campaign, along with the promise of a safe stay, will encourage more people to visit during the work week.
“Viva Las Office pulls together all the details needed to have a wireless remote work experience while still enjoying the care of visiting Las Vegas. “The initial website traffic and early bookings would show that there is a real appetite across the country for this kind of new offer,” said Atif Rafic, president of trade and growth for MGM Resorts.
“As millions of people continue to work from home for the foreseeable future, we realized the opportunity to offer a landscape change in a safe and curated way,” Rafic said.
This strategy is not new. Several other cities are already offering to shake up the WFH routine with work from the hotel options.
Hotels in Los Angeles, Brooklyn and Washington, DC are also serving cheaper rooms and prices for local home-work fighters looking to get out of their homes and spend the work day in clean, quiet, and remote spaces. social media that come with high levels – search for WiFi, unlimited printing privileges and free parking.
The Vegas initiative goes a little further to lure people from all over the world, not just within the city.
And without the end of the pandemic in sight and more companies delaying the return to the physical office, it is not very surprising that companies are rushing to make money on this opportunity.
