A lot happens in Vegas, as we all know. That's why websites like VisitLasVegas.com are helpful when planning a trip there because you can reserve tickets to shows ahead of time. But what do you do if you happen to be already in Vegas and find yourself with some extra time on your hands? Chances are, you haven't schlepped your computer with you.
The old-fashion way is to track down a concierge to help you out. The "new-fashion" way is to get help from "Mobile Concierge" and "Box Office in Your Pocket," two new applications brought to you by VEGAS.com, the largest seller of Las Vegas show tickets and source for Vegas information.
According to their announcement, these applications are the first-ever deployment of mobile show ticketing in Vegas combined with mobile concierge services.
The Mobile Concierge service is for customers already in Vegas, with current day and next day show and tour listings. The Mobile Concierge also has extensive, updated information on Las Vegas hotels. It is available by texting 777 to shortcode VEGAS (83427) or by visiting mobile.vegas.com on handheld devices.
Confirmation information is e-mailed to the customer's mobile device or a standard address (their choice). Customers then have the option of picking up their tickets at a box office or they can choose to save a tree and use VEGAS.com's Box Office in Your Pocket application, which introduces innovative mobile show ticketing with tickets sent directly to a customer's phone or PDA. At supported VEGAS.com-operated Box Offices, customers will utilize a 2D barcode ticket displayed on their mobile device to directly enter the theater. Right now, this feature is only available at the Wynn Las Vegas, with additional locations becoming available soon.
