Vegas Wins Another Conv. Center

April 6, 2012


With business travel rebounding and Las Vegas still one of the nation’s hottest trade-show destinations, a company has begun efforts to develop a large convention center venue near Henderson Executive Airport.

AeroQuestUSA has begun marketing and seeking investors for the 1 million-square-foot International Trade and Conference Center, which would be built on 200 acres west of the airport.

Using a concept similar to the plan used to develop downtown Las Vegas’ World Market Center, AeroQuestUSA is looking to build an exhibition center for year-round display of aerospace and defense industry products.

The International Trade and Conference Center would be the fourth-largest exhibition facility in Southern Nevada, just short of the 1.2 million-square-foot Sands Expo & Convention Center. The Las Vegas Convention Center is the largest, with 2.3 million square feet, and the Mandalay Bay Convention Center is 1.7 million square feet.
