Across the street from the Red Lion, the Gold Country Inn and Casino has 150 guest rooms and JR's Restaurant, which offers private dining. All three properties have a variety of bars and lounges. In addition to being able to stay at one hotel and play at all three properties, meeting attendees can take advantage of free live entertainment every night of the week and use the coupon book for free play and discounts at both the Red Lion and Gold Country. "There are just so many give-me's we offer," Hansen said. The hotels are about a mile from the new 30,000-square-foot Elko Conference Center, a new building that opened next door to the existing Elko Convention Center, which offers a 913-seat auditorium and five meeting rooms totaling about 12,000 square feet. www.redlion.com/elko Aquarius Casino Resort Laughlin, Nevada Ninety miles south of Las Vegas, in the Mojave Desert in the southernmost tip of Nevada, the town of Laughlin is best known for play, both on the casino floor and on the Colorado River. The city sits on the banks of the Colorado, and many of its casinos line the river's edge, linked by the Laughlin Riverwalk trail. The Aquarius Casino Resort is Laughlin's largest with 1,907 guest rooms, a 50,000-square-foot casino and 30,000 square feet of meeting and con- ference space in six flexible meeting rooms. The Aquarius Pavilion and Conference Center has a 19,300-square-foot pavilion that can be split into two spaces: one with roughly 13,800 square feet and the other with about 5,500 square feet. Down the hall, two conference rooms can be combined for a total of 2,700 square feet, and two additional meeting rooms offer 2,500 and 1,070 square feet of event space. Splash lounge on the main casino floor offers a stage, a dance floor, tiered seating and roll-up doors, and is available for group functions and private parties. The Cove Bar and Lounge is also available for private events. When they're not doing business, attendees can board the Celebration riverboat for a dinner cruise, a scenic tour or a private charter on the Colorado River, or ride a horse along the Colorado River in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Groups can also get on the river by renting kay- aks, tubes, paddleboards and jet skis. www.aquariuscasinoresort.com
