Program Description

 

Las Vegas has always been known as a hotbed for entertainment, with a wide variety of shows, concerts, and events taking place on a nightly basis. With the Oakland Raiders and the Vegas Golden Knights establishing roots in the Entertainment Capital of the World, the city is going to be known as a professional sports haven as well. This panel will cover the legal issues the new teams encountered during their journey to Las Vegas, ranging from league and city relations, playing facilities, and fan engagement. Entertainment attorneys will also join the panel to provide insight on the legal issues of getting musicians, artists, and performers to Las Vegas.
