Conventions to consider during your visit to Las Vegas


Winter in Las Vegas has commenced, and Vegas means business with the many events and conventions that are taking place around town. In this blog post, we will discuss some notable, and eclectic conventions and current events that are about to hit Sin City, both on the Las Vegas strip, and at local venues city-wide.



Events taking place in Las Vegas this December and January


National Finals Rodeo

NFR, or the National Finals Rodeo is the biggest event worldwide when it comes to rodeo spectacles such as bull riding, tie-down roping and steer wrestling. Cowboys from around the nation compete year-round to face-off at this high-energy event, where they compete for cash prizes totaling up to a half a million dollars. The event takes place each year at the Thomas & Mack center, where rodeo lovers convene to enjoy a show that they will never see elsewhere. NFR is held at the Thomas & Mack Center located at UNLV each year, attracting tourists and locals alike. This world-famous event will take place from December 6-15, 2018, and requires transportation to and from any Las Vegas Strip hotel, making ODS the go-to transportation method for those not looking to avoid taxi lines, or pay surged ride sharing fees with apps like Uber or Lyft.


Winter Wonderland At The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas 

Although Las Vegas is a dry and (mostly) hot desert, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas turns its Boulevard Pool into a winter wonderland each year that rivals that of a ski destination such as Park City or Aspen. Enjoy a full-size ice skating rink that shows holiday movies, roast marshmallows and make DIY s’mores in their sit-down fire pits, and order boozy soul-warming beverages that are sure to get you into the holiday spirit. The best part is ODS stages doors at The Cosmopolitan, making it simple for locals and tourists alike to reserve VIP transportation to and from the winter wonderland so everyone can enjoy a plethora of boozy concoctions from their bar menu including their Campfire Delight made with Patron XO Café, Rumchata and topped with shaved chocolate and toasted marshmallows.


CES- International Consumer Electronics Show Las Vegas

Flying cars? Check. Life-like robots? Check. Virtual reality televisions? Check. You can find all of this and more at the CES Convention that will take place from January 8 to 11 in Las Vegas spanning across multiple properties. With over 184,000 attendees, 4,000 exhibiting companies and 1,200 speakers, people flock from all over the world to check out the latest and greatest in the business of consumer electronics. This year is expected to be the most massive yet. So massive, that airlines are introducing even more direct routes from major Asian cities due to an increase in international travel demand during this time.
