Las Vegas is a city that is constantly reinventing itself. For years it was known as the most popular gambling mekka not only for US citizens, but players from all over the world. But with some major revenue drops appearing couple years ago the city started changing their politics. Today Las Vegas wants to be known not only for their glitzy casino parlors.
Today the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) is capitalizing on the city’s destination status for world-class entertainment, culinary offerings and most importantly – the music. Between October 2014 and September 2015 LVCVA worked on promoting the Sin City at seven most popular markets – Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Phoenix, San Diego, Dallas and Houston.
No doubt the promotion campaign was successful. There are still people who come to the Sin City for some poker and slots.
