Annual Sales Meeting in Las Vegas
I need some recs for my company's annual sales meeting which we are holding around the end of January in L.V. Usually we have a kick-off banquet in the hotel where we are staying. This year its the Hard Rock. Then on the first two nights we divide our group of about 70 people in four or five groups 10 to 15 people each and give people a choice pf places. We like to have a variety of cuisines from American to Asian because many of the attendees will be from Asia. On the last night we have another group dinner which we usually like to have at a restaurant outside the hotel. So, what I am looking for is some recs on places that can accomodate groups of 10 to 15 people and a place that could take a group of about 70 people. Although this is a company sponsored event and we usually hit some very good places I would like to keep the prices to between $50.00 and $75.00 per person. I am already considering places like Rsoemary's, Lotus of Siam, Fiamma's and Commender's. Any suggestions will be welcome and if any of you ever want recs for the Boston area let me know.
One of te problems that you are going to have with staging a group dinner is that some of the places that you mention may not be able to handle 70 people. That will take a large room and a dedicated staff.
Cathay House on Spring Mountain Rd. has a large banquet room that is set up for a large group. They also have pretty good food.
In any case - and this is coming from a person who has to set up a few dozen of these sales events, find a place and contact the owner to set up a menu and make sure that there is a wide variety of food so that you can accommodate all the tastes of various people. trust me that it takes a lot of time to get all the details (and transportation) planned, especially when you are 1500 miles away.
Craftsteak at the MGM has a private room that holds 75. They have "banquet" menus, and I think the lowest one is $85 per person. I'm guessing they will work with you for a lower price if you fill the room.
