Nevada can only be described as unique — the place, the people, and the culture. All are like no other place in the United States — or the world for that matter. From the pristine shores of Lake Tahoe to the flat playa of the Black Rock Desert, from the antiquity of Mark Twain’s Virginia City to the neon metropolis of Las Vegas, Nevada is a compilation of extremes founded on the pioneering spirit of the West.

Reno has long been famed as “The Biggest Little City in the World,” though it now has more than 335,000 residents calling it and the surrounding region home. The city offers the advantages and excitement of an urban area along with the quality-of-life characteristic of a relatively small Western community. With tourism as the major industry, headlining shows can often be found in the downtown and Lake Tahoe entertainment centers. Fine restaurants and nightclubs exist in abundance. Reno’s annual ARTTOWN events are scheduled during the month of July and include art exhibits and free concerts along the Truckee River. Please visit:


as well as the Local Information table for more information on the these and other events.

With an average of 300 days a year of sunshine, the Reno-Tahoe area has been ranked by Rand McNally’s Vacation Places Rated as the No.-1 location in the nation for outdoor sports activities.

We hope that you will join us for an exciting conference in an exciting location. Remember, what happens in Nevada….
