Conferences are great for all the reasons you can think of: learning new things, honing your craft, making new contacts in the industry, reconnecting with old friends, and so much more. But when the conference is in a location that offers some fun, it makes it even better! Every year we aim to take the Digital PM Summit to a city our attendees can explore. This year, for our fifth anniversary, we are leveling up! Read on for more info on things to do in Vegas, our location, and a sweet deal to get yourself some cash to spend during your stay.

What happens in Vegas...will be awesome!

Las Vegas has so much to offer, and it’s not just about casinos. Whether you’re extending your stay or are looking for things to do during your free time at the conference, you’re going to be faced with so many awesome options. There are great restaurants, shows, museums, desert adventures, shops, and so much more. We know you’re good at Googling all the things, but check out this list of things to do in and around Las Vegas. A few of my favorites are the Neon Sign Museum, live shows (Britney Spears anyone?), ziplining through Fremont Street, the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, and to be honest...the pool at the M Resort.

When I asked some of our speakers what they are looking forward to doing in Vegas, they had a lot of great responses:

“I've actually never been to Las Vegas before! However, I'm a big nerd about designed environments and emotional use of space, so I think I'm going to have a blast just walking around. I'm also a big tabletop gamer, but that has me wary around casinos - my desire to win and play well might bankrupt me!” - Amanda Costello

“Reconnecting with folks and hearing about how they are bending Agile to try and make it work…and there should probably be some questionable karaoke decision making in there as well.” - Dave Prior

“Apart from beating Sam Barnes at a game at the casino, I love views from up high so might take a trip up the Stratosphere tower or High Roller. And of course meeting all the lovely DPM people at the conference!” - Suzanna Haworth

“I am really looking forward to having a cocktail overlooking the lights of the strip. I’ve also heard about a CSI experience where you get to solve a crime CSI-style. And of course a visit to the Grand Canyon is a must.” - Peta Kennett-Wilson

“Spending some time in the desert, OUTSIDE Vegas. :)” - Abby Fretz

“Blackjack!” - Gary Ware

The event will take place at the lovely M Resort, which is off the strip. If you’re planning to attend the conference, you’re going to want to be onsite for the event with the rest of the conference attendees. But, there is a lot to do at the M Resort when you’re not in Digital PM Summit sessions: a unique, open-air casino that is revolutionizing Las Vegas gaming, live music and entertainment, restaurants and bars, a spa, and of course...the pool.
