Hello ILEA Las Vegas Chapter Members and Friends,

It has been an unprecedented week around the world due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we are being hit especially hard in Las Vegas. The spread of the virus continues to impact the experiential industry with cancellations and postponements of upcoming special events, conferences, sport gatherings and concerts to name a few categories. This has had an impact on the businesses and lives of our members. As the global situation evolves, we as an organization continue to monitor, hour by hour, the happenings around the world. Our members and their families and teams are consistently on our minds.

In-Person ILEA Chapter Meetings:

Following the request of ILEA Headquarters, the ILEA Las Vegas Chapter will postpone all in-person ILEA chapter meetings until further notice. Our priorities, in tandem, are to help flatten the curve of spreading this virus and to continue to foster this wonderful community.

Vendor Showcase - March 24, 2020 (POSTPONED):

In compliance with ILEA Headquarters and for the safety of our local chapter members, we are officially postponing Vendor Showcase until further notice. All Attendee and Booth Registration Fees will be refunded. We ask for your understanding and patience during this process.

Please know that we have an ILEA leadership team dedicated to focusing on the impending recovery phase following the impacts of this virus and how we can support our members and industry as we transition. While we continue to follow the facts, we as your ILEA leadership team are committed to remaining positive and focused on creating an optimistic outlook for the future of our industry.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to any one of our board leadership members.

Matthew Gucu, President

Candie Beane, President Elect

Sage Hunt, VP of Programs

Amanda Wallace, VP of Membership

Sebastien Thevenin, VP of Communications

It will take time and calculated responses to get back to where we were, but the power of community will enable us. Take care. Be well. Keep informed with the facts and remember: we are #ILEAStrong #VegasStrong
