Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAS VEGAS - Jan 19, 2017 - WHAT:
Las Vegas continues to be the Wedding Capital of the World, yet in recent years that title has been put to the test. Launching last March, the Las Vegas Wedding Chamber of Commerce (LVWCC) has worked closely with the Clark County Clerk to market and unify this diverse industry. Through the efforts of this public/private partnership, marriage licenses issued in Clark County have stabilized, year to year, after a decade of decline – a great step for this $2 billion per year industry. To further this effort, the LVWCC launches its inaugural Wedding Tourism Sneak Peek 2017 this Thursday with presentations from local dignitaries, government staff and tourism experts.
Hosted by former Nevada Lt. Governor Lorraine Hunt-Bono whose vision spearheaded an international travel brand for Nevada and Las Vegas, the event held at the Copa Room at The Bootlegger Bistro is a nod to its 2016 launch. The event will include presentations from:
· Clark County Clerk Lynn Goya announcing the launch of the $1.2 million media campaign for 2017
· Cheryl Smith and Colleen Yoshida with the LVCVA
· Tyson McKay from Dot Vegas presenting interactive wedding website demos
· David Riggleman, City of Las Vegas
· Travel Nevada/Nevada Magazine
· LVWCC President Kris Labuda speaking on past and current initiatives
Speakers will also be available for interview before presentations begin.
