The IBNS 2014 meeting will be held at the Red Rock Resort. This unique and affordable destination captures the energy and excitement of Las Vegas with breathtaking views and offers both business and pleasure while cleverly separating the two into opposite wings of the resort. The off strip location allows the attendees to focus on the content of the meeting, and enjoy the strip just 9 miles away via the complimentary shuttle.

This billion dollar resort is nestled at the gateway of the Red Rock National Conservation area. Each room has views of either the Red Rock Canyons to the west or a sweeping panoramic view of the Las Vegas Strip to the east. The property is conveniently located 14 miles northwest of the Las Vegas McCarran Airport.

Round trip airport transportation is provided to the IBNS group at no charge. The IBNS has negotiated an excellent $120++room rate for single/double occupancy.
