World Aviation Forum in Las Vegas this Fall

Monday, April 18th, 2005

McCarran International Airport will host the first Las Vegas World Aviation Forum, an industry-only event that will bring together airport, government and business leaders to discuss topics such as changing airport strategies and the prospects of discounted international air service. “It gives us a chance to showcase what we have and get people to think about the advantages we can offer,” said Randall Walker, who was inspired to bring an aviation forum to town after he attended China’s Shanghai International Aviation Symposium last spring. Regular readers of this blog know that Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is the nation’s sixth-busiest airport and plays a critical role in the economic success of our great city. MS Las Vegas Real Estate continues the series entitled…Las Vegas is a real city. This aviation forum is global in significance, has absolutely nothing to do with gaming and is being held in Las Vegas based on our stature and importance in this vital facet of the national economy. Las Vegas homes continue to be a sound investment because Las Vegas continues to be one of the most important cities of the 21st century.
