LAS VEGAS The Bud Light® Hotel will make its Las Vegas debut when the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino transforms into the exclusive party experience during the 2014 Nightclub & Bar Convention & Trade Show March 24-26, 2014.
Bud Light Hotel Las Vegas festivities will set the tone for the entire Nightclub & Bar Show when the venue plays host to the annual Welcome Kickoff Party, featuring a special performance by three-time Grammy award-winning entertainer Ludacris, at the Hard Rock’s Paradise Beach Pool on Monday, March 24 at 9 p.m. PT. The kickoff party (7 p.m.-9:30 p.m.) will be open to all badge-holding attendees, media, speakers and exhibitors, who will be treated to the one-of-a-kind atmosphere created through the immersive Bud Light Hotel activation during the nightlife industry’s premier annual trade gathering. Within the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino foundation, Bud Light will create a unique world where amenities throughout the resort are transformed to embody one of the world’s most popular and respected beer brands.
“I am honored Anheuser-Busch has chosen the Nightclub & Bar Convention & Trade Show as the event during which they will host the first branded Bud Light Hotel experience in Las Vegas,” said Jon Taffer, president of Nightclub & Bar Media Group and host and executive producer of Spike TV’s “Bar Rescue.” “Throughout my career, I have used the brand strength and business presence of Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light as tent pole examples of how to standout in the beverage world, and the Bud Light Hotel Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is going to be another home run experience presented by the best in the business.”
The Bud Light Hotel made its first appearance during the 2010 pro football championship festivities in Miami. Since its inaugural appearance, the Bud Light Hotel experience has developed a life of its own and is routinely sought after by some of the largest and most prolific event coordinators across the United States, most recently taking over a cruise ship docked in New York during the 2014 pro football championship.
