As the travel industry emerges from the pandemic, Las Vegas is welcoming air travelers at a renewed pace thanks to an influx of new amenities and major special events. The recent debuts of world-class resorts downtown and on the Strip, expanded convention space plus a state-of-the-art, 65,000-seat NFL stadium have further increased the drawing power of Las Vegas, while also creating new challenges and opportunities for airport operations and security.

In this keynote address, LAS Director of Aviation Rosemary Vassiliadis will discuss the destination’s continuing evolution while sharing insights into how Harry Reid International Airport is likewise evolving to keep flyers moving safely and efficiently. She’ll also highlight the airport’s Innovation Checkpoint, a unique testing ground at which the Transportation Security Administration’s Innovation Task Force is running live trials on new technologies and processes that are already improving security at airports across the nation, and will continue to do so into the future.
