Henderson has had a remarkable trajectory from a small but mighty industrial town whose creation was driven by World War II to one of the country’s fastest-growing municipalities where major new development is fueling significant investment and enhancing quality of life.
Today the city is continuing to make positive headlines that are impossible to ignore. From the Google data center to Lifeguard Arena, where the Henderson Silver Knights practice, to the continued expansion of Nevada State College and Henderson Hospital, along with a second Amazon fulfillment center, the Haas Automation manufacturing plant and the Raiders practice facility, there is a steady drumbeat of exciting news contributing to the city’s evolution.
The reimagination of the Henderson Pavilion into the Henderson Event Center, an enclosed, 6,100-seat multipurpose venue that can be used year-round, is an especially important project in the city’s ongoing economic growth strategy. With the new venue, residents of Henderson will finally have their own special event center appropriately sized for college and high school graduations, performances by the Henderson Symphony Orchestra and other cultural arts productions, meetings, conventions and, of course, professional hockey and sports of all kinds.
In fact, Henderson’s partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights is the very reason why redevelopment of the pavilion was possible. Through the team’s significant and matching investment of up to $42 million, the ability to reimagine the pavilion into a beautiful, well-designed, and highly functional year-round venue is reality.
The benefits of Henderson’s exceptional partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights don’t stop there. Henderson is now the proud hometown of the American Hockey League’s Henderson Silver Knights. The team makes its practice and administrative home at Lifeguard Arena on Water Street, while playing games at the new Henderson Event Center. To say that Henderson is becoming a hockey town is an understatement.
Through agreement with the Knights, Henderson will continue to own the Event Center, but the VGK organization will manage the facility, leveraging its relationships to secure quality acts and events, and procuring exceptional food and beverage offerings. Ultimately, private operation of the Henderson Event Center will save taxpayer dollars while significantly improving both patron and performer experience.
Just as investment in major infrastructure likes roads and highways helped our country to heal after the Great Depression, and more recently after the Great Recession, strategic investment in infrastructure projects like the Henderson Event Center will escalate economic growth and stability in a post-COVID era.
