The Smith Center for the Performing Arts
361 Symphony Park Avenue
Las Vegas, NV 89106
The 2019 Brand New Conference will be held at the stunning The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown Las Vegas.
Please note that the venue is NOT in The Strip area. It’s in Downtown Las Vegas, which is 15 – 20 minutes away from The Strip by car.
We do suggest booking hotels in Downtown Las Vegas for proximity to the venue and after-party. See list of hotels that are offering discounts for our attendees — these are not room blocks so availability is not guaranteed.
If you have never been, Downtown Las Vegas is a different experience from the Caesars Palace/Mandalay Bay/Etc. version of Vegas. It’s the original casino area and while some of its casinos show their age, most of it has been renovated and the “Fremont Street Experience” is, indeed, an experience. East of it is a new area, Fremont East, full of quality restaurants and bars.
On this side of town you will also find the amazing Neon Museum. We highly recommend visiting it. Advance purchase is required AND the same week of our conference is the opening of a special exhibition on site by Tim Burton. If we are able to secure some tickets for our attendees, we will update that info here.
Closer to the event date we will upload a BNConf-approved area map with suggested walking route (since Apple and Google Maps send you the long way). Average walking time from most hotels is 15 minutes and there are plenty of Uber and Lyft drivers at all times of day for a quick 5-minute drive.
