The Las Vegas tourist board is to host 66 travel agents and tour operator product managers at an American summer camp-style sales training event. The Camp Vegas weekend at Center Parcs in


Woburn Forest, Bedfordshire, is a new concept devised by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s UK representatives Hills Balfour. Leading UK operators to Las Vegas have been invited


and they will choose agents to join them at the April 24- 26 events. Five wildcard places are also up for grabs. Agents will take part in a series of outdoor activities


such as archery and rope climbing, while learning facts about the 10 Las Vegas partners attending the event. They will also have the chance to win one of five


holidays for two to Las Vegas including flights provided by partner airline Virgin Atlantic. Camp Vegas was the brainchild of Alex Perez, Hills

Balfour’s senior sales and marketing manager for Las Vegas, and replaces the tourist board’s previous sales strategy which involved supplier partners touring the UK once a year with updates for the trade. Perez said: “Destinations are competing for agents’


attention, and we needed to provide a unique event that not only educates trade partners on Las Vegas but also helps build relationships. We’ve all seen American summer camps in the movies, so we’re bringing that experience over.” Partners attending the first Camp Vegas weekend


are: MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Tropicana Las Vegas, Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, Papillon Helicopters, Maverick Helicopters, Cirque du Soleil, Bliss Wedding Chapel and Indigo Tickets. ‘Survival packs’ for the weekend will be sent to chosen


agents this month. To apply for a wildcard place, email: lasvegas@hillsbalfour.com
