The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) is charged with marketing Southern Nevada as the premier tourism and convention destination worldwide. The LVCVA also owns and operates the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), which debuted its new, 1.4 million-square-foot West Hall expansion as well as the LVCC Loop, an underground transportation solution that uses all-electric Tesla vehicles, in 2021. With 150,000 hotel rooms and 14 million square feet of meeting and exhibit space destination-wide, including three of the country’s largest convention centers, the LVCVA’s mission centers on attracting ever-increasing numbers of leisure and business visitors to the area. For a record 26 consecutive years, Las Vegas has been named the No. 1 trade show destination in North America by Trade Show News Network. In 2019, Las Vegas hosted more than 22,000 meetings, conventions and incentive programs, ranging in size from 10 to more than 150,000 attendees. Also known as the Greatest Arena on Earth, Las Vegas has evolved tremendously in recent years and continues to capture the world’s imagination, because what happens in Vegas, only happens in Vegas. The LVCVA also works to bring visitors to southern Nevada by promoting and sponsoring various special events, including two annual NASCAR Cup Series weekends, Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and the Las Vegas Bowl.
