Hey Hey Friends,
At the second annual economic forecasting event hosted by the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance and UNLV, all three speakers were highly optimistic for the future of Nevada’s economic standing.
Jeremy Aguero, principal analyst for Las Vegas-based Applied Analysis said, “We are well on our way to being not just the entertainment capital of the world but the sports capital of the world if we’re not there already,”
Overall, the research firm expects existing and future sports teams to add $636 million to the local economy.
“That’s 4,300 jobs for an industry we almost didn’t recognize as existing five years ago.”
Aguero said this impact could lead to growth in other industries, including medicine, construction, retail sales, marketing and transportation.
“We need to leverage the sports industry like we have leveraged our leisure and hospitality industry to open up doors relative to this.”
For example, T-Mobile Arena is the top-grossing arena in the world, with a concert capacity of 20,000 and an annual gross of $164.4 million.
But that doesn’t mean there’s not work to be done, Aguero said. Continued infrastructure growth on projects like the Raiders stadium have brought back thousands of construction jobs, and billions of dollars in investment to the city.
Las Vegas’s venues currently have a seating capacity of 260,000. After the Raiders stadium, the Las Vegas Ballpark and the MSG Sphere are complete, the city will have 352,000 seats online by 2021.
