The two-day event, which took place from April 20-21st, featured runway shows, a speaker panel and the elevated pool deck of the hotel, as well as a full-service salon and spa, upscale entertainment venues, gaming rooms and more.

She wore a cream satin halter neck dress with a pair white New Balances while speaking on the panel.
