These were mine, detailed in the post @funcoupons just pinned you!

1. If you are not a gambler, don't gamble!!
2. Do all your research before getting to Vegas, trust me once you are there the last thing you want to do is research, it's good to review though.
3. Avoid the tourist traps, the best way is always ask the bartender for tips on where and when you should be.
4. Enjoy! it is business, but have fun, sometimes we are soo hooked on the business we forget about ourselves.

agreed, be careful with gamboling!! If you chose to, go in with a set amount and once you spend it do not spend any more

I was just there! Some things to keep in mind. Talk to as many people as possible at the show. Basically if anybody was walking by the booth I'd look at their nametag and say "name, how's it going??" (if they act confused because you said their name, just say "oh I don't know you I just thought it made sense to connect") and then if they engage you ask them how familiar they are with your brand and take it from there.

Vegas suggestion: go to the margarita bar on the strip for a drink. Great margaritas, one of the best I've ever had (very strong - be carful). Can take it out on the strip and walk around at night while enjoying a great beverage. Enjoy your trip!
