RSCVA President & CEO Phil DeLone
Joining the RSCVA in 2017, Phil DeLone has hit the ground running to get initiatives in place that will build momentum for travel and events in the Reno Tahoe area. The revitalization of our region has seen 400 to 500 new companies move to northern Nevada over the past several years, creating a vibrant new business climate that the RSCVA will continue to leverage to attract new events and visitors.

At its March 22 meeting, the RSCVA Board of Directors approved a four-year management agreement for the Reno-Sparks Convention Center (RSCC), the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center (RSLEC), the Reno Events Center (REC) and the National Bowling Stadium (NBS) to SMG, a worldwide entertainment and convention venue management company.
At the February 22, 2018 Board of Directors meeting, the RSCVA Board and staff enthusiastically elected to move forward with engaging SMG, an international convention and entertainment venue management company, to begin operating four facilities currently managed by the RSCVA.
As we near the end of 2017, it is my pleasure to provide a brief update on a development that has been in consideration by the RSCVA and two other public agencies for nearly two years.
