Marketing Networking & Education in Las Vegas Since 2004…

LVIMA (Las Vegas Innovation Marketing Association) is an absolute gem in the city’s professional landscape. Since its inception in 2004, LVIMA has been a powerhouse of digital technology and marketing expertise, bringing together some of the brightest minds in the industry to host exhilarating and informative events.

Right from the start, LVIMA tapped into the rich digital marketing resources that make Las Vegas such a vibrant and dynamic market. This city is a global destination, and to keep pace with its thriving and ever-evolving culture, the digital marketing community has always been ahead of the curve. The community’s roots started in supporting the travel, hospitality, and entertainment sectors, and it has since expanded its focus to include sports marketing, retail, and other verticals. As we have embraced organizations like the Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas Raiders, Vegas Aces, Las Vegas Aviators, Las Vegas Desert Dogs, and more, we continue to seek connections with the future of the region.

LVIMA is an all-volunteer organization that is led by a Board comprising the top agencies, brands, and technology companies in the area. With a strong membership base, LVIMA strives to connect its members with the best and brightest in the industry, both nationally and locally. Our volunteers and sponsors power the way for LVIMA to shine bright in the city of lights, and we are always welcoming to new faces who share our passion. LVIMA focuses on initiatives such as:

  • Inviting national voices such as Heidi Browning Pearson, EVP/CMO of the NHL, Rishad Tabaccowala, NY Times Best selling Author and Host of “What’s Next” podcast, Shelly Palmer, CNBC Host and Blockchain expert, and many, many more to come and share their insights with our community.
  • Hosting an annual technology and digital marketing planning summit to bring national adtech and martech companies together with local brands and agencies for wide-ranging discussions about the best and latest technology to support their work.
  • Hosting an annual event to showcase and honor the groundbreaking work that members are doing in and for the Las Vegas market.
  • Connecting with local university marketing students and graduates to bridge the school-to-work gap with meaningful internships and member introductions and job support to keep those bright minds in-market.
  • Partnering with local charities (that members choose) to facilitate a “giving back” to the community in ways that connect member talent and expertise with appropriate local non-profits.
  • And. So. Much. More.

LVIMA hosts some of the most exciting events in the industry, including bringing in nationally renowned speakers to share their insights and experience with local members. The organization also holds an annual technology and digital marketing planning summit, which brings together national adtech and martech companies with local brands and agencies for wide-ranging discussions on the latest and greatest technology.

LVIMA is also dedicated to giving back to the community by partnering with local charities and facilitating meaningful internships for UNLV marketing students and graduates. This organization truly cares about its members and the community it serves.

The strength and resilience of LVIMA during the COVID-19 pandemic is a testament to the dedication and hard work of its Board and members, as well as the successful relationships the organization has built with other city organizations and the National IMA Association. LVIMA is a treasure that continues to shine brightly and inspire innovation in the marketing world.

We are just getting started. Our cohort of brilliant minds is always in search of the next thing that is going to bring excitement and passion to southern Nevada. As the landscape of marketing and innovation evolves, we strive to connect the spark-makers with the fuel that makes this city burn bright for the entire world to see. Come join us on our journey as we follow our passion and chase the next horizon. Together we will create the future.
