The report is comprised of three distinct activities and is the result of a survey of a select group of economic development professionals and commercial brokers, as well as survey results of a select group of commercial developers and contractors and a comparative overview of market trends (Q4, 2013) in a group of nine Western U.S. industrial markets that compete with Las Vegas to determine the level and type of industrial development activity occurring in each market, including Las Vegas.

RCG would like to thank the LVGEA for its assistance in selecting RCG to conduct this very important comparative market analysis Nevada study and for its review of the two survey instruments used in this report. Although kept confidential in order to obtain frank information, we would also like to thank the various economic development professionals, as well as commercial brokers, developers and contractors who participated in the two surveys. Interviewees were offered two ways to participate: an online survey using Survey Monkey and an electronic survey in PDF format that was emailed to RCG. RCG hopes that this report accomplished the objectives stated herein.
