Area 15—Las Vegas’ new immersive entertainment, retail and dining destination, offering 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space ideally suited for corporate events, private parties and much more—announces two more additions to their event sales team with decades of industry experience in the Las Vegas market.
Since AREA15’s creative inception, Tara Engler (pictured above left) has been with the team serving in various capacities such as the senior project manager and now as the community partnership and programs manager. As AREA15’s grand opening gets closer, her role is expanding to include community outreach which entails cultivating meaningful relationships and cross-promotional partnerships within the local community. In addition, she is building an enhanced philanthropic presence in Las Vegas by proactively reaching out to Southern Nevada-based organizations to develop partnerships for 2020 and beyond. Engler brings more than 15 years of travel and tourism experience. She moved to Las Vegas from the East Coast where she served as a production coordinator for Disney Theatrical Productions; destination services manager for NYC & Company and client relations and studio manager for Beneville Studios, AREA15’s current creative agency.
Josh Baro (pictured above right) brings a successful track record of meeting and exceeding sales goals. In his new role as senior sales manager for AREA15, Baro will focus on booking events in the complex’s unique spaces. Before joining AREA15, he was an event sales manager and part of the opening team for Topgolf. Prior to that, he handled all sales for Airstar America where he was the sales assistant. He was also at Caesars Entertainment where he was charged with the lead concierge. Baro received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and went on to complete his master’s degree in forensic psychology from California Baptist University.
CEO Winston Fisher explains, “To be successful, it’s imperative to assemble a team representing the best in class and that is exactly what we have accomplished with whom we have selected to be part of our event sales team.” A tremendous response has already occurred with interest and bookings of the event spaces. Meeting and event planners are attracted to the unique qualities of the space and close proximity to the Las Vegas Strip. There are numerous private events reserved for this December and AREA15 is currently accepting bookings starting in January 2020.
AREA15 is an experiential retail and entertainment complex offering live events, immersive activations, art installations and much more. The complex will attract locals and tourists of all ages seeking an ever-changing landscape of new and unique experiences.
