The multimillion-dollar expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center that officials say will allow the city to remain at the top of the list of trade show destinations will have a modern design tied by a ribbon-like roof on the outside and iconic imagery inside.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board on Tuesday chose an architect for the Las Vegas Convention Center expansion, reviewed tourism’s effect on jobs and addressed the financing of sports events and the implications of a proposed federal tax bill.
The board agreed with the Las Vegas Convention Center District Committee which earlier this month recommended that TVS Design/Design Las Vegas should be awarded the contract to design the 1.4 million-square-foot expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The state Board of Examiners today approved a $14.4 million contract for design and construction administration for the UNLV medical school. The school’s eventual cost will be $236 million.
The school opened classes this year with 60 students.
