With the cutting-edge app, Las Vegas event planners can make meeting requests in real time. A touch of their fingertips allows professionals to request coffee refills, additional chairs and assistance with audio and visual equipment instantaneously. The app works with any web-enabled device, but event planners who book 75 room nights can enjoy its functions from a free iPad mini – their gift from the Las Vegas hotel.

The hotel is near the Las Vegas Convention Center and boasts six event rooms with 4,250 square feet of flexible space. The largest is the ballroom at 2,400 square feet, capable of hosting up to 275 guests. The Las Vegas hotel is constantly reinventing itself to further its guests' experience and ensure that when they travel with Las Vegas Marriott, they travel brilliantly. Just completed is our new meeting space on the second floor with 600 square feet of flexible event space expertly designed, technologically outfitted. It's all about innovation that inspires and nourishes, making meetings at the Las Vegas Marriot collaborative and effortless. Additional renovations are slated for mid-2014 to further enhance the event spaces' ability to cater to modern travelers' ever-evolving needs and desires.

Business guests staying at the hotel will enjoy access to the onsite self-service business center, open 24 hours to print meeting agendas or send follow-up emails with ease. Guests will find that they are more productive after restful nights of sleep in newly renovated rooms designed with the modern traveler in mind. All lamps and nightstands feature easily accessible outlets so that multiple devices can charge simultaneously. In-room safes are available for storing iPads, laptops, smartphones and all other technology essential to productive business travelers capable of seamlessly integrating work and personal life. The well-appointed rooms also offer luxurious bedding and new THANN bath products – a leading spa brand from Asia which is environmentally friendly and is not tested on animals.

A 42-inch flat screen TV with premium channels CNN, ESPN and HBO and pay-per-view movies offers in-room entertainment. When it's time to start a new day, the room's personal coffeemaker allows guests to brew cups of java or keep a beverage cold in your mini-frigerator from the comfort of their accommodations so that they can begin the morning energized and refreshed. An iron and ironing board are additional conveniences to help ensure that guests have no trouble dressing to impress.

Between meetings, guests can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner at Café 325, the onsite hotel restaurant. Later on, the outdoor pool with whirlpool offers a refreshing place for a quick dip, and the state-of-the-art fitness center makes it convenient to continue with exercise routines even while away from home.

After the day is done, the Las Vegas hotel is just half a mile from the Strip – where the real networking begins. Those who would rather not walk the whole distance can take advantage of the nearby monorail, which will drop them off right in the middle of the action.

To book a room block for 75 nights, earn a free iPad mini and use the Marriott Meeting Services App for an optimal meeting experience, Las Vegas event planners should go to iPadPromotion.Marriott.com or call 1-800-831-4004. The promotion is valid for meetings held through April 30, 2014.
