In this post, we share some of the features and benefits of using a Las Vegas theme at your next event. We will share some of the key components we feel make a Las Vegas event truly successful.

Las Vegas & Casino is an extremely popular theme for a wide range of events and functions.

This theme offers not only a fun venue for your guests to spend the evening in but it is also packed with exciting activities for your guest to interact with.

Components Of A Las Vegas & Casino Event

As the gambling capital of the World, Las Vegas is an extremely vibrant place to visit for tourists from across the world, which is why the City puts a lot of effort into making it unique, vibrant and overwhelmingly fun.

Due to this, getting inspiration for a Vegas casino event can be easy, as you only have to look at the many attractions the real place has!

Betting Tables & Games

Using betting tables at a Las Vegas event is almost a given, but the way you use them is where the creativity lies.

By making the games bespoke to your company or functions purpose, you can make it a fun way to celebrate in different ways.

For example, if you are hosting a marketing event to boost your company profile, you can use branded poker chips, branded tables and even offer products/services as prizes.

If you are using this theme for a private event such as a birthday party, you can focus the games around the age of the person who’s birthday you are celebrating. For example, if they are turning 26, you can adjust a game of blackjack to be “make 26 out of your cards.

Alternatively, you don’t need to theme the games or offer certain prizes, you can simply play standard games for either fake or real money.

Location-based Theming

If you want to focus your event on the actual location of Las Vegas, more than the casinos, you should try adding some fun location-based props and decorations. For example:

  • Viva Las Vegas signs
  • Statue of Liberty props
  • Eiffel tower props
  • Desert backdrops
  • Casino signs
  • Walkabout showgirls
  • Close up magicians
  • And more…

Stage Shows

Another huge part of Las Vegas culture is their love of magic, shows and other stage entertainment.

A great way to add some Las Vegas glamour into your event is by having a large scale stage show at your event! You can use a wide range of stage entertainment such as:

Viva Las Entertainment

When it comes to Las Vegas and Casino themed events, showgirls are one of the most popular choices of entertainment.

Whether it’s a close-up magician with a simple deck of cards or a full magical stage performance, you can be guaranteed that your guests will be amazed 100% of the time.

In addition to being excellent entertainment, our walkabout magicians are a great way to get your guests interacting with one another.

Bands & Musicians

A talented group of musicians is always a safe option when hosting a themed event, and is a famous part of the Las Vegas experience.

When choosing a musician, the options are endless! You can use a large show band, a small musical group or even a solo performer!
