Sin City Retires its Famous Slogan ‘What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas'

Tags: Las Vegas.
Posted on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 by "T".

With the 14-year-old slogan now being put down, the USA's gambling capital may possibly get a new catchphrase.

The community of Las Vegas is still feeling the gloom of the massacre that occurred early this month, and the city officials are searching for other ways to keep the local economy growing by keeping the city enticing for tourists.

An estimate of 43 million people visit America's gambling hub annually.

According to a report by the Associated Press, the city officials have temporarily but indefinitely taken down the city's famous catchphrase, ‘What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas'.

The ad agency, R&R Partners, which was hired by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, have decided to retire the slogan because it was deemed insensitive and inappropriate in the aftermath of the tragic shooting massacre that left 58 individuals dead and hundreds injured on the Las Vegas Strip.

R&R Partners CEO Billy Vassiliadis said that the slogan has been hugely popular since it was released to the public in 2002.

A short Twitter catchphrase #Vegas Strong is currently the temporary slogan being used until the agency decides to bring back the original slogan or comes up with an entirely new one.

It's a shame that they are retiring the slogan but i can fully understand why they are doing after the shocking events of a few months ago. There will be a few people trying to get their hands on these signs i would imagine

It was a bad thing what happened there, but i dont really see the association with the slogan
It is a catch phrase indeed, one that we have seen in many movies.
With catch phrase or not vegas is what it is and that wont ever change.

This slogan is no longer worth it because what happens in vegas has begun to be no secret in many times. It is outdated. This massacre a terrible thing has decided to retiring this famous slogan but in future they will have to think to come up with a intelligent one and of course more safety measures.

I don't really see any real reason to retire this slogan, which is almost iconic, kind a brand on its own, so tragedy happened, but what does it have to do with slogan, or vegas at all, such things can happen anywhere in the world.

nothing can replace this slogan and they will make huge mistake if they do this!this slogan was something unique and when you say only first two words,you know on which city you think!I know that they had tragedy,but they cant do that because of incident!

I know this slogan because I've often heard it in comedy or normal movies. What Happens in Vegas – 2008), "Wild Card" (2011, The Hangover etc. This slogan he was very good at his time and even after many years but it's time to make a change. I think it's a good choice for all peoples and casino workers.

“What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas” is a catchy marketing slogan that was branded particularly for the Las Vegas tourism industry. I used to live in Sin City (Summerlin); I didn't hear many people saying this phrase. A new temporary slogan “Vegas Strong” sounds fine.

Thats really a shame, that they use this gambler slogan after this horrible massacre. It seems, that they don´t realize what happened. Sometimes it was better to say nothing... But in this times it was not easy for a lot of people to be quite in the right moment.
