Exclusive Nightclub Party Planned for IAAPA Attractions Expo 2009

Bright Lights Party Set for Thursday, Nov. 19 at LAX Nightclub

 

Alexandria, Virginia (United States) – During its inaugural run in Las Vegas, Nevada, IAAPA Attractions Expo 2009 will host the IAAPA Bright Lights Party at LAX, an exclusive get-together at the peak of the busy week, on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009, from 7 – 10 p.m. at LAX Nightclub, located in the Luxor Hotel.

With three hours of uninterrupted networking and entertainment, IAAPA Bright Lights Party at LAX Nightclub will be the go-to event of the week, and replaces the Thursday night gala from previous years. Everyone from young professionals to industry pioneers is encouraged to attend; it’s the perfect venue for facilities to treat their employees and exhibitors to host their clients. Covering 26,000 square feet and equipped with a top-tier sound system and posh décor, LAX Nightclub is one of the hottest nightlife venues in the nation and caters to elite clientele.

Tickets for the event cost $109 and include entertainment by a live DJ, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar. When the party ends at 10 p.m., IAAPA attendees are invited to stay until close at one of Las Vegas’ most exclusive nightclubs free of charge. Attendees must be 21 years of age to attend. LAX Nightclub enforces a strict dress code and denies admittance to anyone not in compliance. Expo registration is required to attend the event, and can be purchased at www.IAAPA.org/expos/attractions.

“The IAAPA Bright Lights Party at LAX Nightclub is unlike any event we’ve hosted before and will be a can’t-miss event,” says Charles Bray, president and CEO of IAAPA. “For our first time in Las Vegas, we’re going all out to throw a party where industry professionals can mix, mingle, and have a blast.”

For $5,000 interested parties can rent one of the seven banquet suites which line the second floor of the nightclub. The suites can host groups of 12 to 18 people, and provide a more private experience for party-goers. A number of sponsorship opportunities are also available for the event.
