Welcome to Cvent’s Henderson meeting planning guide – a city guide for Henderson, NV meeting planning professionals. Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada. Located just minutes away from the iconic Las Vegas Strip, it is a coveted meetings and events destination thanks to its location, and proximity to Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire, as well as the outdoor sports paradise, Bootleg Canyon. In all, Henderson meeting venues comprise over 4,000 guest rooms and 250,000 square feet of flexible meeting space.
Less than half an hour from the Las Vegas Convention Center and other major facilities, Henderson sports its own 10,080-square-foot Henderson Convention Center in the heart of the historic Water Street District. Many groups also choose the meeting amenities at several hotels, both gaming and non-gaming. M Resort, for example, features over 60,000 square feet of open conference space, while Green Valley Ranch, with over 50,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, offers an outdoor, eight-acre oasis that can accommodate an event for up to 5,000 people.
One of the prime special event venues in Henderson is Henderson Pavilion, the largest outdoor theater in Nevada. This state-of-the-art venue draws in crowds for productions ranging from full-scale Broadway shows to solo performances, and can welcome up to 4,000 patrons.
Locals and guests alike enjoy a stroll around The District, a pedestrian area next to Green Valley Ranch. With over 59 stores and several restaurants, it's a local version of Michigan Avenue and a perfect place to meet for coffee or lunch and enjoy the urban vibe.
One of the most famous venues in Henderson is Ethel M's Factory and Gardens.

The factory is open to tours and is also known for its botanical garden, open to the public and featuring one of the largest collections of cactus and desert plants in the world.
Home to several high-end communities, Henderson is known for unique dining establishments that range from small restaurants that showcase creative flavors and textures to excellent steak, barbecue and fusion restaurants perfect for hosting larger events. Many also offer spectacular views with terraces overlooking the neon lights of the valley.
