ABSTRACT
The article reports that promoters of Las Vegas, Nevada take recession in the U.S. as an opportunity to call for a California state of mind. Southern Californians allegedly view Las Vegas, the Sin City, as a quick and easy getaway. Terry Jicinsky, marketing vice president for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority say that people during recessions are unlikely to go on full-fledged vacations. The junket of 100 people from Carnfills Gap, Texas to Las Vegas organized by promoters and filmed for a national advertising campaign was cited.
