The famous Las Vegas gambling mecca in the Nevada desert has begun to expand, expand so much in fact, that the effects can be felt even across the ocean. With the hosting of the World Series of poker tournament in Europe, rather than in Las Vegas, where it is traditionally hosted in the Nevada desert has shown its willingness to expand its operations and include international competitors in the effort to popularize and publicize the game of poker.
While the city of Las Vegas itself has suffered some recent blows due to the slump in the housing market in the United States, the expansion plans of establishments such as the Las Vegas Sands Corporation into international markets and the hosting of world-famous poker tournament series such as the traditionally Las Vegas hosted World Series of poker tournament in European and global media markets are all good indicators that the international market for these types of Texas Hold’em poker tournaments is still quite lively.
It is very likely the recent slump at home that has led so many Las Vegas establishment proprietors to look outside the United States for auxiliary and ancillary means of income, as shorter and tighter revenues on the domestic front mean that it is necessary to shore up the incoming capital with significant additional income from other markets. The international community has come through in spades for the needs of the Las Vegas developers that have chosen to take this additional step to ensure their financial future, as well as the fiscal security of staff and investors in their monolithic corporation.
This responsibility to shareholders and staff members is first and foremost among the priorities of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, which has demonstrated in the past its aggressive marketing capabilities and ability to adapt to an ever changing market with the greatest of ease.
