Recognition from industry publications such as Successful Meetings further cement Las Vegas as the ideal destination for meetings and conventions, with some of the biggest trade shows in the industry, including CES, which experienced a record-breaking year in 2016.

The Successful Meetings Magazine Pinnacle Awards are the mark of excellence for meeting destinations, hotels and conference centers.

Looking ahead, the LVCVA is working to further solidify its position as the No. 1 CVB and trade show destination by investing in the Las Vegas Convention Center District.
