Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Inked Three-Year Deal with R&R Partners

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority has inked a three-year deal with public relations firm R&R Partners. The wizards behind the city’s most popular marketing campaign, “What happens here, stays here,” agreed to lower media commissions and a stipulation that enables the LVCVA to terminate its contract with R&R with 90 days notice. “That should give us quite a bit of comfort in terms of approving this contract,” Boyd Gaming CEO and LVCVA board member Keith Smith told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “In some respect, we’re not signing a three-year renewal; we are signing a 90-day contract.” R&R will also expand the services it provides to the LVCVA, which range from media and production services to social networking and international public relations.
