General Information & Travel Tips


Business Casual clothing is suitable for the entire event.  However, some evening meals and functions that you choose to attend at your leisure in Las Vegas may require more appropriate clothing, including perhaps a dinner jacket. 

Also, we recommend you dress in layers as hotel meeting rooms tend to be too hot for some, while others are quite chilly.  We may also host an outdoors evening reception as well, therefore packing a jacket may be a good idea. 

Calling the Hotel:

To reach a guest at the Bellagio, simply call 702-693-7111 where you will reach an operator. Tell the operator the name of the guest you wish to speak with to be transferred.

Internet Access:

The guest rooms at the hotel have high speed internet access. To access the internet from your room, there is a daily fee of $13.99 for 24 hours by credit card or charged to your room as an incidental which you will be responsible for paying upon check out.  


The weather in Las Vegas in November averages 68 degrees with lows in the mid 40s.  It's always a good idea to bring a light jacket "just in case.” 

Faxes to Hotel:

For your office needs, you may receive faxes at 702-693-8585 (at your expense).


Farm Journal has included ample gratuities for meal and meeting room services. Tipping for your own expenses is at your discretion. 


Las Vegas is on Pacific Coast Time.  For example:  9 a.m. in Las Vegas is 11 a.m. CST

Travel to and from the Airport:

Taxi cabs and public shuttle services are readily available at the McCarran International Airport at your own expense (the Bellagio does not offer complimentary airport transportation services).

Taxi cabs are located right outside of the baggage claim area through the airport exit doors of 1 – 4. Please remember that MOST taxi cabs do NOT accept credit cards. All taxi fares start at $1.80 when departing from the airport. Maximum capacity in a taxi is 5 people (including infants and children).

 A few contact numbers should you need additional assistance include:

  • Checker / Yellow Cab – 702-873-2000
  • Western Cab – 702-736-8000
  • Desert Cab – 702-386-9102
  • Lucky Cab – 702-477-7555

Public shuttle buses are also available at the airport via the exit doors of 7 – 13. Shuttle service costs range from $6-$12 depending on the hotel location at your own expense.

For additional information on ground transportation at the airport, CLICK HERE.

Vehicle Rental:

Please note, Farm Journal does not recommend nor endorse automobile rentals as they are not mandatory for your participation in this meeting.  Farm Journal will not be held liable for any vehicle rental situations.  If you are considering renting a vehicle, please read all applicable information before making your decision and understand your obligations as some companies and tours hold the renter completely responsible.
