NAB Inaugurates Sparkling New LVCC West Hall


LAS VEGAS — If you didn’t think the Las Vegas Convention Center and various satellite venues were enough for the NAB Show, which made its return to the city on Sunday after a three-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s a brand-spanking new conference facility for you to enjoy.

The West Hall, which on Sunday played host to the LPTV Association and this morning will be the site for an Alliance for Women in Media (AWM) breakfast, which RBR+TVBR and Radio Ink will have coverage of later on Monday.

To inaugurate the new facility, key NAB leaders and broadcast media executives participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The NAB Show is the first event to use the new facility.

NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt and NAB Executive Vice President of Global Connections and Events Chris Brown cut the ribbon commemorating NAB Show’s expansion into West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The Las Vegas Convention Center’s transportation options are also worth noting, as a driverless system of Tesla vehicles are being used on a “Zoom” track that, while not altogether clear on how to access, uses an ultra-modern system of tunnels to quickly navigate what may rival a large airport in terms of size.

And, while shared ride vehicles seem to be the mode of transport of choice, with the taxi line much longer and costlier than a Lyft from Harry Reid International Airport (formerly McCarran) to the Las Vegas Strip, the Las Vegas Monorail was heavily used as were ample shuttle buses connecting NAB attendees to nearby hotels.
