” With Fremont Street Experience bring in more than 23 million visitors a year, we’re truly eagerly anticipating seeing the brand-new energy this gives downtown Las Vegas and the positive impact it will have on the entire community,” stated Patrick Hughes, president and ceo of the Fremont Street Experience.

The canopy will also be integrating brand-new digital content and interactive aspects, such as The Key, an app that will enable visitors to post personalized messages on the screen and elect the next song or video to be played.
