The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) is charged with marketing Southern Nevada as a tourism and convention destination worldwide, and with operating the Las Vegas Convention Center. With 150,000 hotel rooms in Las Vegas alone and more than 14 million square feet of meeting and exhibit space citywide, the LVCVA's mission centers on attracting ever increasing numbers of leisure and business visitors to the area.
The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), located one block east of the Las Vegas Strip, encompasses approximately 4.6 million square feet with approximately 2.5 million square feet of exhibit space and more than 390,000 square feet of meeting space. The facility is one of the most modern and functional centers in the world.
In addition to exhibit and convention space, 225 meeting rooms handle seating capacities ranging from 20 to 2,500. Two grand lobby and registration areas (more than 260,000 square feet) efficiently link exhibiting of multiple events. In 2020, the Las Vegas Convention Center was awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation by ISSA, the world’s leading trade association for the cleaning industry. Considered the gold standard for safe facilities, the GBAC program was designed to control the risks associated with infectious agents, including the virus responsible for COVID-19. The LVCC was the first facility in Nevada to receive the accreditation. The center hosts some of the largest and most recognized conventions in the world.
The LVCVA recently completed a 1.4 million-square-foot expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center providing an additional 600,000 square feet of exhibit space and the accompanying meeting rooms, public areas and service facilities. This expansion will help Las Vegas maintain its status as the No. 1 trade show and convention destination for years to come.
