You hear it all the time in Southern Nevada: We have more happening on a good weekend here than most places have in a whole year.

Thanks to Las Vegas’ robust convention industry, meeting schedule and nonstop lineup of special events, calendars quickly fill up with happenings that keep the local economy pumping.

To make sure you don’t miss any, VEGAS INC compiled a calendar of some of the city’s most important conventions, special events, business meetings and government happenings.

Among the most significant this year will be the arrival of four relatively small conferences that could pay enormous dividends to Las Vegas if history repeats. The reason: All of them are geared toward meeting and tourism planners and airlines, giving key decision-makers a chance to see the city in person.
