Las Vegas Auction Site Map

With over 2.1 million gross square feet of space, Mandalay Bay is one of the largest meeting facilities on the Las Vegas Strip. The Auction is located in the South Convention Center. To make sure you can find your way around, take a look at the site map below!

Travel Tips

If you are traveling by air, you will want to fly into the McCarran International Airport, which is located in Paradise, NV – right outside of Las Vegas.

The weather starts to cool down in the month of October. The average temperature is about 70°F with highs reaching 82°F and lows reaching 54°F.  

Dress for comfort. Bring light and airy clothing for the daytime and warmer clothing for the evenings. If you are walking around Las Vegas, wear your walking shoes and bring a light jacket, water and sunscreen with you everywhere. For the auction, just make sure to wear comfortable attire.

Distances on the Las Vegas Strip are further than they appear. It might not look like that far of a walk from Point A to Point B, but it likely is. After all, The Strip is 4 miles long.

You may find that you want to walk everywhere, but you also have the option of taking a cab. Just be aware that you will likely have to wait at least 30 minutes, so plan accordingly.
