About Us

The Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance is a public-private partnership dedicated to developing the economies of Las Vegas, Clark County, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City, and Mesquite through regional cooperation, global trade, and global connectivity. We are the economic and community development resource for Southern Nevada.


LVGEA has been designated as one of eight Regional Development Authorities (RDA) in Nevada by the Governorā€™s Office of Economic Development (GOED) for 2021-2022. Each RDA receives oversight and major financial support from GOED.

Fostering Region-wide Collaboration on Economic DevelopmentĀ 

Prior to the formation of the LVGEA, regional economic development efforts in Southern Nevada were significant but lacked organization. Municipalities in Southern Nevada battled for new economic development projects. Legislation passed by the Nevada legislature in 2011 called for better coordination of municipal economic development efforts, and LVGEA, as the new regional economic development authority, took up this call.


To help our residents thrive in a global economy by fostering a more prosperous, diverse, and connected regional economy.


To grow the economy in Southern Nevada through connectivity, community development and aggressive business recruitment, retention and outreach.
