WELCOME

I am proud to say that the Vegas Chamber is the largest business association in the Silver State. Nevada businesses have been turning to the Chamber for help in business growth, job creation, and building a stronger community since 1911. This is an honor. It takes absolute tenacity and commitment to our members to be that leading champion and advocate for small business resiliency. Your Vegas Chamber embraces this opportunity.

What can you expect as a member?

As a member, you can expect tireless, fearless, and effective advocacy. We are here in support of our members and their needs. Our services as an advocate for businesses sets the stage for everything we do. Our aim is to be a community champion and a catalyst for business growth.

What can you expect from us?

You can expect us to take care of business. The Vegas Chamber is with you through times of growth and prosperity, but also through challenging times. The impacts of a global pandemic that threatened the survival of businesses and jobs throughout Nevada was a tough test, but the Chamber adjusted and moved forward with the community. A forward thinking approach is something you can always expect from us through collaboration and consistent business resources.

There are so many amazing opportunities for Las Vegas businesses. Las Vegas is being sought after as the place to host world-class events, whether sporting events, conventions, or headliner shows. Bringing these events to our city creates opportunity for our local businesses as well as job creation. It’s always Go Time in Las Vegas, and we are ready to embrace these economic opportunities with you.
