 Trophy Stage--Nick Verreos with Winners of Gold Award from Westfield Century City--ICSC 2018 Global Awards Ceremony Wynn Las Vegas

This past weekend, I had the honor to host the 2018 ICSC--International Council of Shopping Centers--Global Awards Ceremony at the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel & Resort. The ICSC/International Council of Shopping Centers is the global trade association of the shopping center industry, maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with national shopping councils around the world.

I was invited to host the 2018 Global Awards Ceremony, honoring the Best of the Best in Shopping Centers across the world  in many different categories. The event occurred at the SUPER LUXE Wynn Resort and Casino Las Vegas and so therefore, I was off to Vegas:

I've Arrived!--Nick Verreos in the Lobby of the Wynn Las Vegas

In all my years coming to Las Vegas--whether for fun (attending a "Miss Universe" Pageant) or for work  (to do an appearance)--I had never stayed at the Wynn so it was quite a "WOW" when I did for this event. I'm not trying to diss the usual hotels I stay at when I'm in Vegas (OK, maybe) but let's just say, they WERE NOT The Wynn; this was another level of NICE! Even the people dressed NICE. Case in point: Shocker of all shockers, the men actually wore blazers/dress shirts/slacks to dinner and the casino and I spotted many women in chic very expensive dresses from high-end designers...IN VEGAS!!!

Let's just say I was more accustomed to the t-shirts-shorts-and-flip-flops Vegas crowd and The Wynn was NOT (well, maybe in the morning when the guests were off to find a lounge chair by the pool!). Anyhow, it was quite nice to see this other level of a Vegas hotel stay, a more "civilized/First Class" one.

When it was time for my hosting duties, I had to do rehearsals first, which was great--I spent a couple of hours with the production crew going through the entire awards ceremony and luckily, I had an hour to change into my gown...I mean, Hosting Ensemble of Flower Printed Brocade Dinner Jacket, Tuxedo Pants, Dress Shirt and Skinny Black Tie:

Goodnight Las Vegas--When I finished my hosting duties of the ICSC 2018 Global Awards, I headed back to my room and found this box of chocolates with a lovely note from Sonia--the Front Desk--Wynn Las Vegas. Classy. And very nice. Made my night. Thank you Sonia. Thank you Wynn Las Vegas XOXO
