How to dress for Las Vegas

Las Vegas is located in the middle of Nevada’s Mojave Desert, which makes the weather dry, hot and unforgiving. For an accurate forecast, check the latest 10 day weather forecast. Regardless of the climate outside, the hotels and congress center are air-conditioned. If you’re not used to it, we suggest bringing a small sweater or cardigan with you to the show floor.
