About the Event

Now in its 42nd year, Perspective is the region’s premier source for community and economic development information, analysis, and forecasting. It has become a valuable resource for a diverse group of companies, ranging from small business entrepreneurs to some of the largest in Nevada, as it not only provides a comprehensive overview of the market as it stands today but also an economic forecast component to give expert opinion about where the market is headed.

Perspective would not be possible without the financial and in-kind contributions of generous community organizations and businesses. The sponsor companies comprising the LVGEA’s Perspective Council put this valuable content in your hands and guide the research and thoughtful analysis.
