celebrate Forum shops
20 Year anniversary Iconic retail and dining destination introduced high fashion, luxury brands and environmental theater to Las Vegas retail.
hat do Fendi, Versace, Dior, Varvatos, Gucci, Ted Baker, Valentino and Spago all have in common? They all opened their first Las Vegas location at The Forum Shops at Caesars. When The Forum Shops first opened in 1992, the concept of couture, high-fashion, luxury and celebrity chefs had not yet made its way to Las Vegas. When Simon Property Group Inc., the nation’s largest public real estate company, unveiled its distinctive Roman streetscape, sky-painted ceilings and array of shopping and dining, The Forum Shops at Caesars immediately became a Las Vegas institution. Twenty years later it remains the most renowned shopping center worldwide.
From its spiral escalator to Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant, to The Palm restaurant, to the world’s largest H&M, to the Atlantis Show (featuring a 50,000 gallon salt water aquarium and a spectacular selection of specialty shops), today The Forum Shops continues to grow. Its recent expansions include Salvatore Ferragamo, Stuart Weitzman, Gucci, Versace, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, as well as new openings from Pal Zileri, Hublot, Coach Men’s, Sephora and Martin Lawrence Galleries. Additional information may be accessed at forumshops.com. The Forum Shops at Caesars is located at 3500 Las Vegas Blvd., South. More information can be found at forumshops.com. Find The Forum Shops on Facebook at facebook.com/ ForumShops and follow twitter.com/the_forum_shops.
Perfectly situated on the famed Strip, the concept for The Forum Shops broke all the standard rules for shopping mall success— and Las Vegas. There were no anchor stores, and luxury retailers had never before made the journey to the desert city. Now, with nearly 700,000 square feet, The Forum Shops is globally recognized for its unique combination of top retail, dining, entertainment, location and ambiance, featuring 145 specialty shops and 15 restaurants. The Forum Shops ranks as one of Las Vegas’ top attractions and continues to inspire retail and fashion trends across the globe. As an icon in the retail industry, The Forum Shops’ success has been driven by continuous reinvention, attracting the world’s best fashion brands. The Forum Shops at Caesars paved the way for Las Vegas to transform itself into a leading force in retail. 8

America’s most unique
You already know you have to make your way to Louisiana. The French Quarter’s been on your too-see list since you booked your flight to America, and you wouldn’t think of missing the plantation tours. But are you about to miss out on some of the most fun discount shopping America has to offer?
he first tax free shopping program for international visitors to the U.S. is still the most hassle-free and the most unique. Louisiana’s tax free shopping program has been operating since 1989 and it’s no wonder why it’s been so successful. Where else in the world can you buy an alligator head and a Coach bag to carry it home in side-byside shops?
Louisiana’s one-of-a-kind flavor is world renowned, and it’s not limited to
our famous gumbo and etoufee! We’re the only state in the nation where you can purchase an authentic voodoo doll, then cross the street and get that iPad you’ve been promising yourself. And when you
do, just bring your ID, save your receipt and stop into one of the six refund centers conveniently located throughout the state and get your tax refund in cash right then and there. Our tax refund centers aren’t to be confused with the duty-free shops you’ll find at any international airport. Oh no—you’ll find a whole lot more than discount liquor and the same old souvenirs. More than 900 shops participate in our tax free shopping program, each one with that special Louisiana spirit you simply can’t find anywhere else. From the bayou to Bourbon street, from gift shops for the folks back home to fashion and accessories you’ll be showing off on the rest of your American adventure, Louisiana tax free shopping is as much a journey as it is a destination. Make sure you don’t miss out on your ideal Louisiana shopping experience. Go to louisianataxfree.com and explore the directory of tax free shops to make your must-visit list. Don’t forget to ask your family back home what they want—or they may end up with a voodoo doll that looks like you. 10
