Engaging shows, mouth-watering buffets, adventure parks, museums, sight-seeing - Las Vegas has it all!

Not only is Las Vegas fun and exciting, the city is one of the most travel accessible meeting destinations in the U.S. The Mirage Hotel is only 13 minutes from McCarran International Airport (LAS), where more than 900 direct flights from all over the country are available. Flight costs average $300 round trip per person - that's a price that is hard to beat! Parking at The Mirage is FREE, making the Mid-Year afforable.
