    I think I read somewhere there is a huge awards show at MGM that weekend, but I'd assume people would be leaving town by then, as the awards show is Saturday, May 21.

    However, on the opposite end of the strip at V/P, Citrix Synergy starts and runs through the week, with the bulk of the conference going on Tuesday to Thursday.

    Looking at the convention calendar, there's another convention (RECon 2016) going on, but it's only 36,000 people and at the Westgate.

    We will be there for the Citrix conference, and noticed high rates and many sold out rooms starting Sunday, May 22. Luckily, I had 2 comp nights from NYNY, so I'm using those to add to the beginning of the trip.

    Actually I found specifics, and I was off by a day. The Billboard Music Awards are Sunday, May 22 at MGM, so that's why it's booked!

    I didn't know Santana was there. I'd like to see him too! I'm using my NYNY comp then!

    How many people does that bring in? I can't imagine it's as many as the Billboard awards, but it definitely adds to that #. I'm sure the Citrix conference, while at the other end of the strip, adds to the number of people in town that week, too.

    Yes it all adds up! I'm not sure how many people attend. It's spread out over different hotels.
