Conference Reception

Sunday, May 17, 2020

4:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m.

Red Rocks Tour

Monday, May 18, 2020

1:15 p.m.–5:15 p.m. | $130.00

Encompassing 196,000 acres, Red Rocks features a wide range of ecosystems, wildlife, and multicolored views. This stunning Mojave Desert landscape has served as the backdrop for dozens of films and holds incredible opportunities for both the amateur and professional photographer. First, stop at the Visitor’s Center where you’ll encounter charming desert tortoises in a protected habitat or learn about the varying plant species throughout the park. Next, visit the Keystone Thrust Fault and the 3,000-foot high Wilson Cliffs, whose walls were the perfect canvas for ancient tribal artwork. Awaiting you near the end of your tour, the Calico Hills are truly a grand finale. These rock formations are ancient sand dunes with fossils of animals and plants preserved within their layers. Depending on the time of day, you’ll see why these hills are named “Calico”; a kaleidoscope of pinks, reds, and oranges shift with the changing light. Before ending your day, take the paved trail up to Red Rock Overlook and enjoy the breathtaking views.

Price includes round-trip transportation, entrance fees, the guided tour, boxed lunch, bottled water, taxes, and gratuities. Box lunch choices are turkey & cheese, ham & cheese, Italian sub, veggie sub, Bobbie sub (turkey, cranberry, stuffing, & mayo). All lunches include sandwich, chips, veggie sticks, cheese and crackers, cookie, and a mint.

Cirque du Soleil's O

Tuesday, May 19, 2020

7:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m. | $165.00 (Category B)

With an international cast of artists, Cirque du Soleil’s timeless production “O“ tells the tale of theater through the eyes of a young Sicilian boy on a quest for adventure. Inspired by the concept of infinity, “O,” phonetically speaking, is the French word for water (spelled “eau”). World-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers, and characters perform in, on, and above water to create a breathtaking experience in a magnificent theater reminiscent of a European opera house. The 1.5-million-gallon pool is an amazing feat of imagination and engineering. You won’t want to miss this fabulous production.

Price includes show ticket, taxes, and handling fees. Transportation to Bellagio not included.
