Question:

Each year Las Vegas seems to attract larger and larger events, such as the NBA All Star game, Las Vegas Grand Prix, NASCAR or a dozen other events that seem to engulf the city for nearly a week at a time. The need for increased crowd control, massive street congestions, lack hotel room vacancies and of course the extra problems needed to be solved by the Metro Police Department all seem to come with these big events. This Weeks Reader Poll asks . . . do you think it is good or bad to bring these events which attract 50,000-250,000 extra people per event. What needs to be added to Las Vegas to accommodate these events? What is your Opinion?  Why or Why not?

Reader Poll Replies:

I think the old Vegas was a better deal, less crowded and more fun.  So let the big events stay somewhere else.  Laura Bond NY

I'm not really very fond of the big time special events listed above, but still think they are good for Vegas. Isn't that what Vegas is all about? And accommodation? Look at Vegas. Is that a city or a huge construction?  Gorazd Gavrilov  Henderson, NV

*  A Plan. Every facility needs to have a plan that considers the ebb and flow of the number of clients served on a given week. Events requiring hotels, restaurants, and law enforcement to step up and staff up should get them in on the event planning. The overused term "stakeholder" applies, the city and the businesses have a stake in assuring the customers all have a pleasant experience. That includes air facilities, taxis and shuttles, front desk, and shows. It only gets bigger.  Don Bartley  Portland, OR

We got stuck there when the Grand Prix was running. We weren't aware of this race and it totally ruined our vacation. I believe these events should be held outside the Strip where traffic will not be a problem. Most people who come to Las Vegas are not there for these events and should not be subjected to all the restrictions they cause.  Donna Wallman  Maineville, OH

*  Yes it is a good thing. That what Las Vegas is. The fact that the city has enough hotel rooms to be able to hold these events is what make it that much better than any other city in the world. These rooms are first class rooms not cruise ships brought in for the event. The best thing the NFL could ever do would be to hold the Super Bowl in Las Vegas each year. What city is better equiped to handle this event? It could be a two week extraviganzer to which there would be no equal.  Normand Lemay  Pawtucket, RI

It is great that they keep adding these big events. I think that it would be great if Las Vegas had an underground train that went under the strip and to downtown.  Donna Dollner  Stockbridge, GA

Large events is the economic life of the city, without all the people those billion dollar casinos might not get built and or stay open.  Denise C.   KY

I dont like coming to Vegas when there are huge events, room prices are higher and the congestion is massive.  Susan Hanson

*  Conventions are the economic heart of a city, unfortunately it does make congestion and crowded hotel rooms, thus driving up prices.... but if it were not for these conventions and big events billion dollar casinos would or could not be built.  Dwight M.  OH

Las Vegas is always crowded so it might be a good idea to hold these events off-season--any time other than summer months or any location outside the strip. Edith from San Jose, CA
