Future Leaders


Mentioning “Vegas” invariably invokes thoughts of the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” Elvis Presley. His profound impact on the city of Las Vegas during the late 1960s and early 1970s is indisputable. Notably, his historic comeback took place at none other than METALCON’s headquarter hotel for next month’s show — the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino (formerly known as the International Hotel). The Westgate has stood as an enduring institution for decades, once home to Elvis during his remarkable seven-year residency. Though his suite may be a thing of the past, the hotel pays tribute to the King of Rock ‘n Roll with the Elvis Presley’s Graceland Wedding Chapel and a striking statue in his honor. To this day, Elvis’s legacy thrives through the countless impersonators who continue to grace Vegas stages, reinforcing the lasting connection between the city and this legendary music icon.
