    Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Host Committee Chairman and former City of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman spoke at the Urban Chamber's monthly luncheon. It took place on Friday, January 25, 2013 at the Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel.

    After taking a hit during the Great Recession, tourism in Las Vegas is on the rise again, according to Goodman. He invited business and civic leaders to become Host Committee Ambassadors to further promote our town as a major destination for trade shows, conferences, and business events.

    Playing a greater role to promote business tourism in Las Vegas improves our local economy, and thus, our local businesses.

    To become a Host Committee Ambassador, please contact (702) 892-7691 or LVHostCommittee@LVCVA.com. To learn more about the LVCVA and the Host Committee, click here
