Get Informed in Las Vegas

Andrea Doyle, Executive Editor

Las Vegas LAS VEGAS — Now that Las Vegas has re-opened, “Get Informed,” a Las Vegas concierge event service that has partnered with Informa Markets, is gearing up for a groundswell of business.

Melanie Bash and Molly Hoisington, industry veterans with expert knowledge of Las Vegas, are the creators of Get Informed.

“No trade show company has ever partnered with a concierge event service company like ours,” Bash said.

Bash and Hoisington have over 60 years’ combined experience in the event and hospitality industry. Bash spent nearly two decades running her own event and fundraising group before co-founding LeverageLV, a fundraising consultancy for nonprofits, and Hoisington has spent over two decades managing customer success for a Vegas-based event firm. Now, the entrepreneur and event specialist are joining forces to create this full-service concierge event service that provides everything from transportation and dining arrangements to large-scale corporate events and entertainment.

The venues they have relationships with are truly unique. Hacienda Palomino, the home Michael Jackson spent his final years, an airport hangar, mansions and everything in between can be the site of your next off-site event with the help of Get Informed.

In addition to their local offering in Vegas, the team has also developed virtual event experiences to support the ever-increasing number of digital trade events and conferences.

“We made the decision to embark on this partnership because we recognize the value of ease, efficiency and excellence as our customers look for opportunities to network, connect and rebuild this year,” Ken McAvoy, EVP, Corporate Development, Informa Markets, said. “By partnering with Get Informed, we are able to be a single point of contact for our customers both on and off the show floor, helping them easily secure dining reservations, travel accommodations, entertainment opportunities, event venues, digital networking opportunities and more, in addition to the quality connection and commercial opportunities they receive at our events. Melanie and Molly are well-respected throughout the industry, and we are thrilled to have them on board as our preferred concierge event partner in Las Vegas. As live events return to the show floor, we hope to add a little extra magic and a little less hassle to communities who join us here in Las Vegas and facilitate the extension of those experiences and relationships through digital formats throughout the rest of the year.”

Informa Markets hopes to expand its concierge event partnership to support other key regions as well. Get Informed will not only provide event services to Informa Markets shows but other gatherings as well.
