“The RSCVA played a large role in
bringing the National Association of Counties Annual Conference to Reno in
2010,” said Washoe County Commissioner Bonnie Weber. “The sales team helped
organize site selection tours before the event, and also made a great effort
during the event to make the conference a success. Washoe County wanted to
bring the convention, and the economic benefits that come with it, to Reno
Tahoe, and the RSCVA helped us maximize that exposure by selling the
destination at other county events across the country.”
According to the Convention Industry
Council, meetings and conventions is a $260 billion industry. By giving locals
an avenue to easily help bring their professional or trade association meetings
to Reno Tahoe, the RSCVA is allowing those individuals to direct some of those
billions of convention dollars into their own community.
Local “Superheroes” will be recognized
throughout the Reno Tahoe community with a spot on the “Wall of Fame,” a
recognition event with Mayors and area business leaders, and a donation made on
their behalf to the charity of their choice.
