Client Testimonials

As our company continues its rapid growth, we quickly realized the need to set up a formal U.S. headquarters. We explored multiple cities and were about to make the move to San Francisco, and then we heard about the complete reinvention of downtown Las Vegas. Coming from China where things are booming and growing, we love that downtown Vegas now has a similar vibe of energy and change. Not only is there an exciting tech community here and much lower costs than the Bay Area, but we love the fact that almost every industry group brings their conventions to our front door once a year.

Jonathan Jenkins, founder & CEO, OrderWithMe

We love the vibrancy and energy of Las Vegas, and downtown is at the heart of it all. That's why we've launched our mobile platform with a focus on downtown. This is an exciting time in Las Vegas history, where community, commerce and technology are all converging at once. Downtown is our city's hidden gem.

Andy Hsieh, owner, Lux Delux

We chose to relocate from the suburbs to downtown for several reasons. Our brand image and that of downtown’s mesh perfectly. The new downtown Las Vegas reflects a more hip, start-up, social media-style image. Additionally, downtown’s emerging technology corridor, anchored by Zappos, is an environment that enhances our ability to recruit the types of technical skill sets required for our continued growth and success.

Ramesh Srinivasan, chief marketing officer & Head of Partnerships, SocialWellth

I think downtown Las Vegas is a unique blend of intimacy and great energy. Plus, in contrast to The Strip, it’s so easy to walk around…The Golden Gate has been here for over 100 years and with all the changes going on downtown, it feels like a new era. It truly is a renaissance—the rebirth of a classic.

Mark Brandenburg, president, Golden Gate

The city has been great in helping us with the licensing and procedures necessary to start a business. There hasn't been a brewery built in the city of Las Vegas for probably ten years. So for them it hasn't been a typical ‘cut and paste’ thing. We're something different. It was a team work process to get us opened – a lot of talk and listening on both sides. And now the city started opening up the doors for other breweries once we were up and running. Good news for us and good news for the future.

Roberto Mendoza, co-owner, Banger Brewing

The city is so supportive of new businesses. Things are popping up constantly.

Pamela Dylag, co-owner, Velveteen Rabbit

Downtown is becoming very much in demand…there’s a limited supply. Run fast, don’t walk.

Marc Abelman, CFO & Co-owner, Inside Style

Our business is booming amid the foot traffic on Fremont Street, and we’ve started to see how tourists are falling in love with downtown as they discover it. In the past year, we’re increasingly hearing things like, “Wow, next time we’ll stay downtown instead of on The Strip,” or “we’ve visited downtown many times, but this is the first year we’ve actually stayed in a downtown hotel.” They like that there is more to do within a smaller walking radius.
