Clark County proudly presents the photo exhibition "From Zero to 60 and Beyond," a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Las Vegas Convention Center featuring photographs from the archives of the Las Vegas News Bureau.
The exhibition looks back at the events that shaped the Convention Center's history and takes a peek at the innovation that will define its future. A project originally intended to fill hotel rooms between busy weekends, the Convention Center catapulted Las Vegas from a vacation spot in the 1950s to a leading business destination, which today hosts 6.5 million convention attendees annually.
With a major renovation and expansion underway rolling out over the next five years, this exhibition salutes the Southern Nevadans whose vision evolved Las Vegas into the vital community and worldwide meeting and travel destination it is today, and those whose leadership continues to fuel Las Vegas' success into the future.
The exhibit will run from May 1 through June 4, 2019. The reception is Friday, May 3 from
6 to 8 p.m. at the Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery, 500 Grand Central Parkway in downtown Las Vegas.
