Ever wonder why meetings and conferences in Nevada always seem to be held in places that still allow smoking? Nevada does not require all indoor workplaces to be smoke-free and many of the workplaces that hold meetings and conferences may still allow smoking.
However, as demand for smoke-free meetings continues to grow, the Southern Nevada Health District, Washoe County Health District, and community partners have responded by developing a Smoke-Free Meetings Directory. This directory serves as a one-stop shop for all information needed to book your next meeting or conference in a smoke-free location.
Click here to search the Smoke Free Meetings directory, view a map of locations, or submit your venue to the directory.
To be included in the Smoke-Free Meetings Directory, a location just needs to meet a few simple criteria:
- Offer meeting or event space in an area where smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the building.
- Allow businesses and organizations to rent or schedule the location for meetings or events.
That’s it! The list of smoke-free meeting locations in Nevada ranges from hotels and restaurants to museums, community centers, a baseball stadium – even an educational farm and a nature preserve.
The Smoke Free Meetings project also recognizes those organizations within Nevada that are committed to smoke-free policies and recognize the importance of smoke-free indoor air for their meeting and event attendees. Organizations that wish to commit to hosting or sponsoring only smoke-free meetings can adopt a policy and receive recognition by Smoke Free Meetings Nevada. Click here to sign the policy pledge.
