Air Transportation

Las Vegas, Nevada's McCarren International Airport (LAS) is served by nearly ever major airlines and quite a few minor ones.  In addition to regular daily flights, you might find some smaller airlines have flights one-way on several days of the week, and the other way on different days and sometimes are quite a bit cheaper than the big airline companies.

Airport to Hotel

If you fly in, you have several options for getting from the airport to the Tropicana Hotel, where the Conference will be held.

Las Vegas Monorail ($5/single ride)

This is the most economical way to get to your hotel. Monorail travels from Sahara Ave to the MGM Grand, 7 days per week from 7am to 12am.  MGM Grand is located directly across from Tropicana Hotel.  Visit www.lvmonorail.com for rates and ticket prices.

Airport Shuttle ($12/one way)
