Las Vegas has a lofty reputation as a hook-up town. Thus, the saying “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” But what a lot of people don’t seem to realize is that while it’s a great place to have fun, it is also a fantastic place to do business. That’s why so many companies hold their conventions there – with just enough edge on the place to entice people who otherwise try to get out of going to those boring conventions.
