El Cortez

The visionary behind Circa Resort Casino at the corner of Main Street and Fremont Street Experience invites all to experience the excitement. From a three-story sportsbook to rooftop cocktails to six pools across three levels and collections of restaurants–consider this your standing invitation.

The general manager of El Cortez is also a steward of history. You see, this is the first Hotel & Casino entered into the National Register of Historic Places. Proudly displaying the same historic signage and architecture for more than 80 years while investing millions in remodels and updates. With a track record like that, you know you’re in good hands.

Las Vegas Lights FC

The Executive Director of the arts and culture festival’s foundation has a pure goal: to celebrate the artists that breathe vibrancy into what is a treasured monthly festival for all of Southern Nevada. Showcasing local artists, musicians, makers, this is the place to celebrate creativity and positivity while sampling 50+ food trucks and restaurants.

The founder of the United Soccer League club and our hometown pro soccer innovator has a knack for giving the fans what they want. Great soccer, great entertainment and great value. If you haven’t heard of the world’s largest water balloon fight or the $10,000 helicopter cash drop, perhaps you’ve heard of the pitch-side pools? That’s how you do soccer Downtown-style.

Plaza Hotel & Casino

The CEO of this iconic casino-hotel in the heart of Downtown is a hands-on leader frequently seen on premise. That personal touch and vision for bringing guests what they want can be felt from the first permanent outdoor equestrian arena downtown to the pool and pickleball facilities to an array for bar and dining options–including hosting the iconic Oscar’s Steakhouse.
