Anne Mezzenga of OmniTalk joins James Cook on a fantastical journey through AREA15, a new entertainment district near the Las Vegas Strip.
Drew DiCostanzo, Director of Sales and Marketing at Meow Wolf Las Vegas, leads a tour of Meow Wolf's OmegaMart. They begin in a place that looks like a typical grocery store, but things soon prove much weirder and more entertaining.
Anne and James visit Wink World, a new exhibit from Blue Man Group co-founder Chris Wink.
AREA15 CEO Winston Fisher says they've "invented a new real estate project operating business...ultimately creating a content box." Fisher speaks to the past and future of AREA15, with plans to replicate the Area 15 concept in other cities.
James Cook is the director of retail research in the Americas for JLL.
