In PURE Nightclub's private Red Room, LG offered hands-on time with its latest smartphones, including the just-released content creation and sharing (or connect and sharing) multitasking powerhouse, LG Optimus G Pro as attendees recovered from a busy day on the tradeshow floor and prepared for a night on the town. VIP guests were treated with stress-relieving chair massages, professional hair and makeup touch-ups and shoeshines, while charging their personal mobile devices at nearby charging stations.

"While the main attraction was interaction with LG smartphones, LG created an oasis of relaxation and respite where hardworking professionals could kick up their feet and take a break from the busyness of the show floor while charging up for a fun evening in Las Vegas," said Georg Rasinski, director, mobile brand management, LG Electronics USA. "With LG's powerful and popular Optimus G Pro, show attendees were able to easily plan their evening and capture and share those momentous Vegas memories."

During the invitation-only event, attendees were treated to a slice of the latest LG smartphones to come to the U.S. market, along with their full suite of innovative and user-friendly features.

Attendees shot entertaining videos with LG Optimus G Pro's Dual Recording feature, taking advantage of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera to capture HD video of themselves and the event simultaneously. With its stylish, ergonomic design and narrow screen bezel, LG Optimus G Pro delivers  outstanding power and speed with a more comfortable in-hand experience and great "pocketability" for a smartphone offering and expansive 5.5-inch Full HD screen

Using a variety of cutting-edge LG features, attendees made the most of their Las Vegas evening. They collaborated in real time to create memory books of their trip with VuTalk™, a powerful feature that lets users draw and share fun and productive notes and images on a shared screen during voice calls*. They also planned a full night of activities with QSlide 2.0, a multitasking feature that enables users to schedule events on calendars, book show tickets and more—all at the same time, on one screen.

Guests used LG Optimus G to shoot HD video and high-resolution images of the night's fun activities and Nexus 4 for a pure Google experience. They had the opportunity to capture friends and colleagues dressing up in humorous, Vegas-themed outfits and other festivities with LG Spirit 4G's photo-snapping capabilities. And they experienced Lucid2 by LG, using its new, intuitive user interface created for the first-time smartphone owner.
