GWIB Tourism, Gaming & Entertainment Sector Council Strategic Plan 2013

There's the fishing, hiking and camping of Great Basin National Park, the rock climbing of Red Rock Canyon National Recreation Area and the snow-capped Ruby Mountains of Northeastern Nevada - all with more than 300 days of sunshine annually.

Las Vegas, Reno and Tahoe host the big names in entertainment, as well as some of the well known  annual events such as Hot August Nights, the Balloon Races, the Best in the West Rib Cook-off, the Reno Air Races, etc.,  that are drawing thousands of visitors all around the world.

Given its leadership, Nevada is the ideal platform for the study of hospitality. Through different educational programs, which include hotel administration; culinary arts and beverage management; service, lodging and resort management; recreation; professional golf management; meetings and events management; and sports and leisure services, the state is focusing on leveraging its intellectual capital to create higher-skill and higher-paying jobs and open up new opportunities for industry.

The mission of the GWIB Tourism, Gaming, and Entertainment Sector Council is to identify workforce needs and develop initiatives to educate its workforce in support of the economic development goals of the state.
