Las Vegas, NV. (May 4, 2023)
LVE Named Nevada Family-Owned Small Business of the Year
The Nevada Small Business Administration presented LVE with the 2023 Nevada Family-Owned Small Business of the Year award at their annual luncheon at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.
Nicholas Cordaro, president of LVE, accepted the award on behalf of his sister, Jennifer, and their father Robert. Together, they lead an exposition company with 96 full-time employees and 145,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space in Las Vegas. In addition to the company’s Las Vegas headquarters, LVE has offices in Nashville, New Jersey, and Orlando.

Started nearly 30 years ago as Las Vegas Expo, Robert instilled core values of integrity, hard work, loyalty and passion in the family business and those principles continue to guide the organization’s culture today. Those principals served the company well as LVE pivoted in the face of Covid-19 along with the rest of the business community.
“On behalf of my family and our amazing staff, I want to say thank you for this very meaningful award. Beyond staff and client loyalty, we are indebted to the SBA and local and national government officials who helped companies like ours navigate a nearly impossible situation brought on by the pandemic. Our future is bright.”
For more than 50 years, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has celebrated National Small Business Week, in part, by presenting its annual Small Business Awards. The awards recognize the achievements of SBA-assisted small businesses and the contributions they make to their communities and Nevada’s economy.
