BACKGROUND: 

Clark County has long been known as “The Wedding Capital of the World.” The phrase has, for many years, been a central marketing tenet used to promote marriage tourism to Clark County.

The County Clerk seeks approval of the Board to trademark “Wedding Capital of the World” to ensure the brand remains attached to Clark County. The proposed trademark is necessary to effectively promote wedding tourism in Clark County. Establishing Clark County as the registered owner of the brand and associated artwork will ensure that the graphics and name are used in accordance with County guidelines in a positive fashion.

The costs and fees for obtaining the trademark will be paid for from funds previously allocated for use by the County Clerk from the County Clerk’s special revenue fund for the promotion of marriage tourism.
