On November 12-13, 2013 Trade Mission Las Vegas held a two day tour for real estate practitioners from around the globe to network and tour Las Vegas. It was networking, touring and getting to know Las Vegas. A. Ron Evangelista, Chairman of the International Trade Mission arrived at the Gold Spike early to prepare gift bags, with Linda Griner, the Realtor Ambassador for Australia and “Realtor to the Stars”.

The day started with a walking tour of the downtown projects with Zappos, who has bought over 40 buildings and plans to renovate them. Ron Evangelista put Container Park on the tour that will now foster and incubate future businesses. A 130 seat theater is part of the downtown projects. (Tamara)

The highlight of the morning was when former Mayor Oscar Goodman arrived with his famous Showgirls to greet the crowd. When Oscar Goodman was mayor over 10 years ago, he had this dream to bring the glory of big business’s back to “Downtown Las Vegas” and his dream is coming true with all the new developments .<photo022>

Carlos Oscar is Squeaky Clean on Stage

Carlos Oscar is a storyteller who finds the humor in everyday life and that usually will include his wife and kids and his Latino heritage. Carlos is energetic, funny and very natural on stage. He makes you feel like he is visiting you in your living room and talking about everyday life.

A cocktail reception was held inside the Tempo Lounge in the LVH (Las Vegas Hotel & Casino) just prior to his 8:30 show. I didn’t know what to expect in his clean comedic show but I was looking forward to his comedy.
As Carlos Oscar told his stories, he adapted various characters and voices to match the characters. He talked about situations that occur every day and his observations of how people react to them. I found him to be very funny and related to everything he was saying to be true in my perception of life. Life in itself is funny and I always find the humor in life.

Carlos has shown that you can be clean and be funny and you definitely should go and see his show and have a squeaky clean time.
