East of the mountains and pine forest, where Lake Tahoe straddles the California-Nevada border, Reno stretches over high desert. "People don't realize how close Lake Tahoe is to downtown Reno-Sparks," says Chris Baum, president and CEO of the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority (RSCVA). "It really is a mind-blowing experience to see the lake for the first time. When you come over the ridge and see that incredible alpine lake, it's breathtaking."

Quirky” is a difficult word to peg. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines it as “a peculiar trait: idiosyncrasy.” It’s often associated with “offbeat,” “strange” or “odd.” Others link it with “unique,” though it defines something more specific than that.

There are a lot of ways a meeting can go wrong, and two of the most common are diametrically opposed to one another. On the one hand, an event can be too boring, with not enough adrenaline-rush activities to keep attendees excited and engaged. On the other, it can be so jam-packed with stuff to do, attendees end up feeling exhausted.

There’s a reason Reno-Lake Tahoe rolls so easily off the tongue. Collectively, the neighbors pack a whopping punch of year-round exploits, 24-hour gaming and entertainment, millions of square feet of meeting and event space, and lodging ranging from full-service luxury resorts to quirky mom-and-pop outfits.

At night, Reno, Nev., becomes a sea of glittering lights. Signs for iconic hotels such as Harrah’s sparkle beside those for the modern El Dorado and Silver Legacy. There are shimmering billboards, a bright neon sign for the historic Terrible’s Sand Regency Casino Hotel and two soaring Circus Circus towers.

“Reno, not Vegas for our annual convention—huh?” That was the skeptical reaction of some long-time attendees, says Arlene Lawson, executive director of the Western States Roofing Contractors Association. But the glitzy city to the south had priced them out of the destination, and she needed a good alternative.

The “biggest little city in the world” (as its motto goes), Reno sits near Lake Tahoe and the California border in northern Nevada. The one-time capital of gaming in the country (before the rise of Las Vegas in the 1950s), Reno doesn’t have quite the glitz and glam of its neighbor to the south. Instead, the city worked to build its meeting business, emphasizing its affordability factor.
It’s a value destination, so groups are looking to have a great location with fun activities and lots of stuff to do.
