4 Nevada Shops VieFor Reno Convention And Visitors Group

The Reno/Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority heard presentations last Friday from four Nevada agencies seeking to capture its estimated $2 million account.
The finalists–Reno shops Dunn/Reber/Glenn/Marz (the incumbent), Rose/Glenn Group and Bayer Brown Forsythe & Ernaut, as well as Shonkwiler-Marcoux Advertising in Las Vegas–all presented strategic ideas.
DRGM’s three-year contract expires at year’s end, and the authority’s board of directors asked its new president, J. Philip Keene III, to conduct a formal search, according to Esther Isaac, who is serving as a consultant. The organization largely targets Western markets, and is expected to expand its efforts in Southern California, Isaac said.
A decision is expected by the end of December. –Angela Dawso
