On Tuesday, March 8, I had the pleasure of attending In Business Las Vegas’ “40 Under 40” event.  The celebration was held at TAO Nightclub inside The Venetian and honored 40 local professionals under 40 years old that have each made significant community and business accomplishments.  Any event  featuring delicious food and drinks is more than enough reason for me to add it to my schedule.  This time however, I was really there to support one of my clients, Chris Nelson of Blue Man Group.    He oversees 120 employees at Blue Man Group’s Las Vegas production at The Venetian and was one of the 40 professionals selected from more than 250 nominees by a panel of In Business staff members. 

During the event, Greenspun Media Group Business Editor Richard Pérez-Feria announced that the group will be launching VEGAS INC this April.  Pérez-Feria  will serve as Editor-in-Chief.  As a big fan of In Business, I’m really excited to see what interesting new features will arise when this launches. 

I’ve been attending the “40 Under 40” event the last couple years and I am very happy to notice that each year it seems to get better and better. It’s great to see increased support and recognition for individuals that have had positive impacts in both their respective industries and the community as a whole.
