Press Release

Aviation Nation is now an officially endorsed
and sponsored Las Vegas Event

On February 12, 2003, the Las Vegas Events (LVE) Board of Trustees voted to make Aviation Nation, the Nellis Air Force Base-Las Vegas Air Show, an officially endorsed and sponsored Las Vegas event. The sponsorship provides a substantial marketing, media and advertising budget for Aviation Nation and the event will now be promoted through marketing programs of Las Vegas Events and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

Las Vegas Events joins corporate sponsors such as Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD), a leading diversified owner and operator of 12 gaming properties and title sponsor of Las Vegas Unlimited Air Racing, and JT3, LLC, an engineering and technical support provider for Department of Defense test and training ranges.

Last year, an R&R Research impact survey commissioned by Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority reported that the Aviation Nation 2002 air show attracted an estimated two-day attendance of 500,000 making this the largest event in Nevada during the year. The study also reported the air show generated a $36.2 million economic impact for the area.

World of Wings (WoW), negotiated the deal and will manage the marketing and media budget provided by the LVE sponsorship. In 2002, WoW was appointed promotional agent for Aviation Nation by the Nevada International Air Show Association (NIASA), a non-profit organization that seeks the advancement of public awareness of airpower via annual air shows at Nellis AFB. NIASA is officially recognized by Nellis AFB to assist in funding for the air show.

Aviation Nation is the official air show of Nellis AFB, Nevada. Nellis AFB is home to the Air Force Thunderbirds, Red Flag, Air Force Weapons School and Air to Ground Operations School.
