MGM Resorts Announce Viva Las Office

Socrates once said “The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.”

We have all bore witness to what happens when a city that runs on tourism, gaming, and live events has to shut down. Las Vegas has had a tumultuous 2020 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, but that has not stopped casino giants from getting innovative and adopting new strategies in an attempt to lure back visitors. 

Last week MGM Resorts announced ”Viva Las Office”, the program, available at the Aria and the Bellagio, is an all-inclusive travel package aimed for business professionals who are tired of working from home.

Incentives include discounted rooms, airfare deals, food and beverage credits, private pool access, free massages, unlimited printing privileges, complimentary parking, flexible check-in and check-out times, and even an “executive assistant.”

The “executive assistant,” comes with every package and will serve as your very own personal concierge who will coordinate all the details as needed for your visit. 

“Viva Las Office pulls together all of the details necessary to have a seamless remote work experience while still enjoying the perks of visiting Las Vegas. Initial website traffic and early bookings would indicate that there is a real appetite around the country for this new type of offering,” said Atif Rafiq, president of commercial and growth for MGM Resorts.

There are three different “Viva Las Office” package tiers The Associate, The Manager, and The Executive. They offer remote workers a much-needed change of scenery for a week that will include both work and play in Sin City. Prices start at $100 and it’s a three-day minimum stay. 

Every package offers discounted airfare and access to a private terminal through JSX, a hop-on jet service. The jet service can only be utilized to flights coming in and out of Arizona, California, Texas, and Washington state.  

“As millions of people continue to work from home for the foreseeable future, we recognized the opportunity to offer a change of scenery in a safe and curated way,” said Rafiq.

The home-away-from-home accommodation comes as casino heavy-hitters attempt to recuperate lost revenue during the months they had to turn off their lights per Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolaks shutdown mandate. 

Nevada casino’s reopened on June 4, but they are not as busy as they once were. New regulations including mask requirements, temperature checks, more space between gamblers, limited occupancy, and cutting the number of people allowed in meeting spaces have contributed to their lack of foot-traffic.
