The Education Summit Planning Committee is working on sessions in several topical areas. Appealing formats such as debates, case studies and roundtables by specialty area are in the works, as well as experiential sessions on Wednesday.

Energetic and eclectic, The Linq Hotel is designed to fuel connections. Located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, The Linq Hotel guest rooms include cutting-edge technology, modern furnishings and close access to the Linq outdoor shopping district and The High Roller.

The hotel’s meeting space offers high-speed wireless internet and videoconferencing, and internet kiosks are conveniently located throughout the property.

At the Linq Promenade, Caesars Entertainment has redefined the iconic Las Vegas skyline with the opening of world’s tallest observation wheel, the High Roller. Topping out at 550 feet, the High Roller eclipses both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer. Facing north and south (parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard), the wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one full revolution and features 28 glass-enclosed cabins with broad views of the famed resort city. Each cabin accommodates up to 40 people and is available for individual or group experiences.
