MGM Resorts Looking to Attract Remote Workers to Vegas
US casino and hotel operator MGM Resorts is looking to bring remote workers to spend a few days in Las Vegas through its ‘Viva Las Offices’ campaign.
The company is looking to provide the opportunity for those forced to work from home to change their scenery, while also enjoying what Vegas has to offer.
Guests can choose to stay at one of two MGM venues in the Gambling Capital of the World, with different package tiers and discounts available.
Individuals can stay for between three and five nights, or longer if they wish.
Work remotely, play in-person
Due to the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, much of the world is being forced to work from home for the foreseeable future. The US is no different in this respect.
In its marketing campaign, MGM Resorts acknowledged the difficulties for some people when it comes to being out of the office for sustained periods.
Individuals will get the opportunity to stay either at the ARIA or Bellagio venues in Las Vegas, with all rooms equipped with free WiFi and a desk amongst other amenities.
President of Commercial and Growth Atif Rafiq said the following.
“We understand that working from home every day can become taxing and monotonous, and we are excited to offer a safe and curated experience here at Bellagio and ARIA that combines work and play.
“These packages are designed to offer the best of both worlds. A safe, spacious work setting while still allowing guests to enjoy the amenities and experiences Las Vegas is known for through a single offering.”
Affordable compared to the normal costs
The MGM Resorts packages begin at just over $100 per night, plus tax and resort fees.
This is a lot cheaper than the usual prices. According to the Las Vegas Advisor and as reported by the Reno Gazette Journal, the base weekday nightly rate for the Bellagio was $169 last August – rising to $229 on weekends.
Those who wish to take advantage of MGM Resorts’ deal can select three different categories. The lowest level is ‘The Associate’, which gives guests $50 food and beverage credit per night as well as a $75 discount on round-trips with the airline JSX. The latter of these goes up to $100 with the ‘Manager’, with ‘Executive’ deal purchasers getting $75 nightly food and beverage credit and $125 off their JSX round-trip.
Each package includes a dedicated executive assistant, while the two more elite deals have other niceties that range from private pool day passes to a massage and more.
In its press release, MGM Resorts said the below.
“As millions of employees continue to work from home for the foreseeable future, MGM Resorts International is unveiling a much-needed change of scenery with “Viva Las Office,” the ultimate home-away-from-the-home office experience at Bellagio and ARIA.
“With three tiered packages, “Viva Las Office” offers elevated amenities and benefits to fit every working traveler’s needs.”
