Las Vegas continues to capture the world's imagination as the city where anything is possible. With world class hotels, award-winning restaurants, luxurious spas, fantastic shopping, the finest golf courses and spectacular entertainment, Las Vegas remains one of the most electrifying destinations in the world.
Beyond the neon there is another Las Vegas for residents and businesses. We are building a world-class city that features the best in arts, culture and medicine, and we also continue to diversify our economy with projects like the Las Vegas Innovation District.
Las Vegas is an international stage for innovation and technology, hosting the massive Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) shows annually. Building on the strong tech foundation provided by SWITCH, the city of Las Vegas recently established the Innovation District to create a center for testing groundbreaking technology in the areas of alternative energy, citizen participation, transportation and social infrastructure. It will also be a proving ground for collaborative efforts between the city and its new technology partners.
The city is on the cutting edge of developing safe practices that enable automated vehicle (AV) implementation and innovation. Solutions to everyday issues such as traffic congestion, parking and accessibility are at our fingertips. With full-time staff already integrating AV technology and a demonstrated commitment to safety and security, the city is primed to be an AV proving ground.
Join us as we continue efforts to become a hub for new technologies that will be used around the world.
