plenary Zappos Coworking Lounge + MyPlate
The Venetian/The Palazzo Congress Center has
a new coworking space — powered by Zappos.
Coworking has arrived. The onetime lifestyle choice for work-hard-play-harder Millennials is now so mainstream it has a dedicated space
in a Las Vegas casino. Located in The Venetian/The Palazzo Congress
Center, the 1,170-square-foot, glass-enclosed Zappos Coworking Lounge
offers Wi-Fi, charging stations, four phone private phone rooms, a six-person conference room, and furniture from Restoration Hardware.
“Placing a coworking space in the heart of a meetings and convention destination combines two concepts that you do not often see
together,” said Lisa Marchese, chief marketing officer at The Venetian
and The Palazzo. “We know this unexpected amenity, with its comfort
and functionality, will appeal to our guests and help them maximize
their time while they are here for a meeting or convention.”
And the space is staffed by Zappos personnel. “Coworking encourages
the sharing of ideas, and what better place to do that than in the
middle of the largest meeting space in Las Vegas,” said Zappos adviser
Maggie Hsu. “Our team members will be staffing the lounge and will
share the Zappos service philosophy of ‘delivering happiness’ with
every ‘collision’ they make with a guest.” .
