Vegas Chamber president and CEO, Mary Beth Sewald, issues the following statement on the passing of Las Vegas businessman Sheldon Adelson:

“No one shaped modern day Las Vegas more than Sheldon Adelson. From transforming the convention industry and creating two of Las Vegas’ most iconic resorts, to becoming an international leader in sustainability practices and supporter of the men and women who have served our country in the military, he leaves a legacy that few, if any, will ever match.”
