The Lee Business School at UNLV has created a worldwide $1,000,000 Lee School Prize for Innovation and Entrepreneurship with the goal of discovering and funding innovative technologies and solutions that make the food & beverage, hospitality, casino, sports & entertainment, and travel industries a safe place for employees and guests in the post-pandemic world.
The hospitality, travel, sports and entertainment industries, which boasts in excess of 330M jobs worldwide, must become safer for both guests and employees.
As the worldwide entertainment leader, the Las Vegas community is uniquely poised to lead the way forward for the industry.
We must respond urgently to build the bridge between our present moment and longer term medical advancements to allow us to safely return to doing the things that we love sooner.
When the time is right, our employees must be comfortable returning to work and guests must be confident that it is safe and desirable to travel again, dine again, stay again, and play again.
