Hospitality Heroes was created to celebrate the accomplishments of an elite group of frontline hospitality workers in Las Vegas while showcasing the resilience of the tourism industry.
Tourism is Southern Nevada’s top economic driver, representing nearly 30 percent of overall employment in the state. Hospitality workers ensure Las Vegas remains the world’s number one tourist destination. Nominees must be with their current employer for a minimum of one year, work in Las Vegas, and be in good standing with no pending disciplinary actions.
Hospitality Heroes are selected by an independent committee of local business leaders representing the UNLV School of Hospitality, the Vegas Chamber, the Latin Chamber of Commerce and Travel Nevada. Hospitality Heroes will be recognized both at their place of employment and during the LVCVA’s public Board of Directors meeting once per quarter.
The 2022 Hospitality Heroes program will follow the schedule below:
Quarter 4, 2022
Quarter 1, 2023
Quarter 2, 2023
Quarter 3, 2023

Travel & Tourism Issues
We proactively advocate on crucial travel policy issues to further extend Las Vegas’ influence among policymakers, media and stakeholders as a leading voice in tourism and hospitality.
Surface Transportation Initiatives
To improve mobility to the destination, we’re assembling a multi-state coalition to promote upgrades and investments on the I-15, which are essential to reducing congestion and ensuring a better traveler experience for the 23 million visitors who travel to Las Vegas via this crucial interstate each year.
Brand USA Funding Extension
The LVCVA has been a leading voice in support of continued funding for Brand USA, the nation’s first public-private partnership to spearhead a globally coordinated marketing effort promoting the United States as a premier travel destination.
To advance our advocacy efforts, we work closely with other leaders in the travel industry to promote the benefits of travel and tourism and champion issues of importance to their growth.
