Lake Tahoe in the springtime is not a bad place to be. With snow still on the peaks of the surrounding mountains, meeting professionals gathered at Harrah’s & Harveys Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nev., from May 31-June 2 for the 2017 Caesars Entertainment Lake Tahoe Client Educational Experience.

The event included educational sessions from top industry veterans, a CSR activity, Q&A discussion with the Caesars Entertainment sales team, great food and drink presented by the Harrah’s & Harveys Lake Tahoe culinary team and, of course, some spectacular views of the lake.

Caesars Entertainment and the team at Harrah’s & Harveys Lake Tahoe wowed attendees with an opening reception on May 31 in Harrah's South Shore Room, where attendees were able to network with Caesars staff and other planners.

The first full day of the event (June 1) kicked off with breakfast in the recently renovated conference space at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe and was followed by sessions with motivational speakers Pamela Jett and Andy Core. Jett’s presentation “Communication with Confidence, Credibility and Influence” taught the lesson that “Words Matter” when looking to achieve results, make an impact and improve effectiveness. Core’s presentation, titled “Change Your Day, Not Your Life,” gave attendees three ways to just that.

After an over-the-top lunch with a Tahoe feel, our group had a chance to give back to the Lake Tahoe community with a CSR activity benefiting The Children’s Cabinet, which aims to help local families.

The first full day closed with a reception and dinner across the way at Harveys Lake Tahoe. On the 19th floor, with unobstructed views of the lake, our group was treated to a multi-course dinner at the hotel’s Kitchen 19. And for those that still had some energy, the party continued to Cabo Wabo Cantina, Sammy Hagar’s hotspot on property. Hagar is best known for his solo career and time in Van Halen.

After breakfast at another spot with a lake view—Friday’s Station at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe, speaker Katy Patay spoke on the importance of color in design and event decor. She was followed by Kelly McDonald who had everyone laughing as she shared eight strategies to create successful customer experiences.

All-in-all the Caesars Entertainment Lake Tahoe Client Experience was the right mix of education, networking and entertainment, and the event did a good job showcasing the properties to planners.
