For us, Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, it will be about continuing to compete against a strong fall sports calendar with the Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas Raiders and the South Point 400. We have to make sure our pricing is competitive, but fair, and that we continue to attract the world’s best PGA TOUR players to compete in our event.
One of the biggest challenges Las Vegas will face in the next five years is how to keep up with the incredible growth.
Bryon McLendon founded Nutrishop Inc. in 2003. His philanthropic passion includes mission-related charities, dog rescues and programs for developmentally challenged adults, such as Opportunity Village.
Home365 is a technologically driven property management company that entered the Las Vegas market in June.
In Nevada, six out of 10 children live in poverty. Under the umbrella of education, we need to focus on surrounding our youth with a network of support.
In my opinion, industry diversification is the biggest challenge we face. We are heavily dependent on the hospitality industry, which can be very volatile as we saw in the last recession.
I think that one of our biggest challenges will be keeping up with the rapid growth and changes in the valley. With all of the new sports teams and entertainment, we will all be faced with more traffic, yet will have more opportunities for connection and community. My hope is that even with the changes and rapid growth, Vegas will still have the same small-town feel I have experienced over the 25 years I have lived here.
In my world, the biggest challenge we face is connecting everyone to our community! We are one of the fastest growing Jewish communities in the United States and we are working to find new creative ways to connect people to the Las Vegas community and particularly the Jewish community through all sorts of educational, cultural and social opportunities.
