Together, the delegation is attending the BIO International Convention to engage with BIOtech companies about the benefits of doing business in southern Nevada, engaging in mutually beneficial collaborations, and relocating or expanding to Southern Nevada.

UNLV, a Carnegie R1 research institution, is a key player in the delegation's efforts.

UNLV is seeking to connect with BIOtech companies and explore collaboration opportunities.

The City of Las Vegas, the City of North Las Vegas, and Clark County are also participating in the delegation’s efforts to attract BIO-industry companies to the region. These municipalities have invested in infrastructure, workforce, and economic development and diversification initiatives to create an attractive and thriving business environment.

Finally, the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance is playing a vital role in the delegation's efforts. As the region's premier economic development organization, LVGEA is responsible for driving economic growth through attraction of companies and industry to southern Nevada. Through its attendance at the BIO International Convention, LVGEA is seeking to connect with BIO-industry companies, showcase the region's strengths, and attract employers in the BIO sector to the Greater Las Vegas area.
