Las Vegas — The first day of the 2018 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade show has come to a close where attendees participated in a variety of Pro Workshops, learned invaluable knowledge from speaker sessions with industry leaders and fine-tuned their skills at offsite bootcamps and trainings.

To kick off the morning, guests participated in several Pro Workshops, allowing them to receive a hands-on learning experience from industry experts. Throughout each workshop, attendees were given insider knowledge, tips and tricks that will help move their venue to the forefront of their industry. Workshops included trainings on creating a cocktail program that fits your venue and patrons, how to train staff in a way that boosts productivity, performance and morale, as well as a step-by-step instruction on the best process of opening a bar that will lead to its success.

Throughout the day, attendees learned from the experts in each field with speaker sessions ranging in topics from how to cater to millennials, sustainability in cocktails, lighting design, how to give your venue the right vibe through music, menu design Jedi mind tricks and much more.

Select attendees had the opportunity to travel to Caesars Palace for the OMNIA Nightclub Bootcamp where members from the team – including security, management and VIP hosts – took guests on a back-of-house tour of the venue, giving key insight into several major aspects of OMNIA’s operations. Throughout the tour, insider knowledge was shared surrounding bar operations, VIP Host marketing, security, DJ booth, lighting and sound, as well as cocktail service.

This evening, Foxtail Pool at SLS Las Vegas will host the Welcome Kickoff Party with a live performance by 80’s Station.
