Top tips and need to know facts!

For those who are not ready to wing it, yet.

Top Tips

1. The Maps are deceiving

While Google Maps shows everything packed together, the actual experience is very different. The Las Vegas Strip is 4.2 miles long and jam-packed with attractions to see, food to eat. So be sure to time yourself when going out and sightseeing.

2. Don’t get lost in time

Vegas is 24/7! The casinos don’t have windows or clocks on the wall, so it’s very easy to get lost in time. If you want to live the best life but also make the most of the Money20/20 show it’s always wise to keep track of time, have enough sleep and make sure you attend your sessions and meet-ups.

3. Don’t lose your badge, we can’t reprint!

Your badge is your entry key to the show, content sessions, and any networking evening events or parties, so remember to have it on you at all times. No badge, no entry.

4. Stay hydrated

We recommend you pack a reusable water bottle to carry with you during the day. You’ll find water stations within the exhibition hall to refill your bottle and stay hydrated. If you forget to bring your own water bottle, fret not - simply walk up to a stand with freebies and snag a free water bottle.

5. Your coffee fix

Keep your energy levels up during the day! There will be an exciting variety of food and drink available throughout the show at the exhibition hall.

6. After show events

Drop off your laptop and bags in your hotel before heading to that exciting networking party. If available, why not make use of the spa or gym facilities in your hotel to re-energise before heading out for the evening?

7. Bring cash

While there are ATMs everywhere, the casino/hotels charge to take out money so we encourage you to bring cash with you to avoid hefty withdrawal fees at the venue.

8. Create a schedule

You don’t have to strictly stick to it, but having a place to start will make all the difference. Ensure you allow for walking time between meetings and content sessions to avoid being late or missing out. Use our Connections App to build your customised schedule, in the App you’ll find an interactive map of the venue so that you can easily get from A to B. The Connections App will go live closer to the time of the show, and we'll let you know once it's up and running.

9. Plan to walk...A lot!

For those of you in fitness challenges counting your steps, get ready to score big this October! You’re going to be doing a lot of walking and standing, so be comfort-conscious when selecting footwear. You may want to bring a change of shoes (and socks!).
