The World-Famous Vegas Trek


Each year, a group of lucky GSB students descends on Las Vegas to go behind the scenes of some of the biggest hotels, casinos, restaurants, clubs, and shows, and meet with key executives to understand how the industry works.


"The best trip I have taken at the GSB so far. It would be a massive mistake not to go on this trip."
-Brendan Wallace-

"What an amazing weekend! Itís like an all access pass behind the scenes at Vegas..."
-Kat Helm-

"Meeting the ballers of Vegas during the day (Bellagio, Harrah's, Venetian, UFC) and partying all night."
-Rob Cherun-


The trek will take place the weekend of April 9-11, 2010 (just in time for pool season). The trip is open to both 1st and 2nd year members of the GSB Travel & Hospitality Club and is ALWAYS oversubscribed. Stay tuned for more details on the trek and the THC kick-off event on Wednesday 11/4 at 7pm.
