THE BLENDED EXPERIENCE

Who was it that said a conference couldn’t be more like a festival? And where was it written down that live music can’t coexist on the same stage with engaging speakers and challenging discussions?

We’ve completely rethought what it means to go to a festival or attend a conference by blending the two into one experience designed for maximum impact. Choose the topics and artists that interest you most, then let the wisdom of our curators take you on a remarkable journey that will alter your perspective for the better.

Plus, you’ll never have to choose between dancing and learning.

WHO IS EMERGE FOR?

We believe that, in order to make an impact on the world, you need to bring together a community of diverse and passionate people. We built Emerge to do just that. Here are just a few of the people we built the event for:

MUSIC FANS

Emerge 2017 will feature 100 of the best emerging musicians on the planet. We found them using a proprietary curation program that includes a board of over 20 industry influencers, a proprietary algorithm, Spotify’s incredible data engine, and an internal team of passionate music fans. We do not take applications and we do not book for favors. We only book the very best musicians who are going to change the world in the next 18 – 24 months.

CONFERENCE-GOERS

You are the seekers of beautiful insights and progressive perspectives. For you, we are bringing in a lineup of the most passionately curious and deeply insightful thought leaders in the world. These are the people you want to have Thanksgiving dinner with!

THE ACTIVISTS

You are writers, painters, world creators and image destroyers. You will change the world. In honor of you, we have created a series of incredible program themes to fuel your fire.

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Every social movement in history was done to a soundtrack. You are the reason for that. You fuel our soul, and for that we thank you. We are building the networking and work-working experience of your dreams. Direct connect access to talent? Check. A working lounge to take meetings? Yes. A high energy environment to discover the next big thing? You better f’n believe it.

THE CORPORATE WARRIORS

ACCOMMODATIONS

Hotel Partners coming soon!

TRANSPORTATION

Airport Shuttles

On a tight budget? No sweat. Shuttles can cost less than $10 for Strip/Downtown. Check with your hotel for exact schedules/fees.

Uber, Lyft

If you don’t already have one of these apps on your phone, you’ll need to download and register to digitally hail a ride. (Easy and fast!) Be sure to check with airport or resort on designated pick-up and drop-off locations.

Taxis

Unlike NYC and other major cities, local laws prohibit Las Vegas taxi drivers from picking up passengers that are hailing them. Your best bet is to head to one of the many taxi stands. They are typically located at the valet of resorts, retail spots and restaurants.

You can always CALL ahead for a taxi pick-up!

Walking the Strip

With most everything within walking distance, foot traffic is heavy on the Strip. So is auto traffic. Here are a few important things to keep in mind to make your pedestrian journey safe and efficient.

If you’re not sure where you are headed, check a map or ask for directions. Lots of directions will take you through hotel/casinos to get where you are going.

Stay on sidewalks and pedestrian bridges.  

Don’t jay walk to get across the Strip or intersections. (PLEASE.)

Stop. Look. Listen. Don’t assume drivers see or hear you, there is a very good chance they don’t.

Parking

At some resort properties, there will be a fee to valet or self-park. Check with individual properties for rates.

ADA ACCESSIBILITY

It’s important to us that everyone is able to see and hear conference programming comfortably and safely. All Las Vegas Strip properties are compliant with the American Disabilities Act, and will accommodate any needs that may arise. Contact the concierge of your hotel for additional assistance.

Parking/Valet

There is plenty of ADA parking available at every resort/venue on the Strip! Just make sure you display the proper credential so you don’t get a ticket.

HEALTH + SAFETY

Desert Climate

Drink lots of water. Even when it’s not summertime-hot, the humidity in the desert is lower than most places and you will feel it. With all the walking, eating and drinking that is typically part of the Las Vegas experience it’s important to stay hydrated.

Safety First!

We take your safety seriously, our partners do too. Las Vegas resort properties have systems in place to make sure everyone is safe and secure. If you need assistance don’t hesitate to reach out to a uniformed security officer, property employee or Emerge team member. If you need to, dial 9-1-1.
