In this one isolated location of the United States, there have been dramatic changes to the philosophy of conducting business. In the past ten years Las Vegas has defined to the world that new innovations to hotel projects can be developed to achieve maximum profitability. Casino companies strive to build the next premier, exciting, state of the art, five star hotels. Change in the casino industry is always exciting with the prospect of a better way to grow and increase shareholder value.
