Classic rock musician. Harley-Davidson enthusiast. Las Vegas City Manager. You could say that Roger Stevenson, Nuvista’s City Manager of Las Vegas, lives life in the fast line.
He’s such an impressive guy that Roger and his band were featured in the March edition of Exhibit City News. In the article, Roger is shown playing bass alongside other trade show industry pros at venues in Las Vegas.
Having grown up in Detroit during the sixties, Roger’s love for music stems from seeing legendary rockers when they were starting out. His favorite was the first band he ever saw: Led Zeppelin. When playing the band’s long list of hit classic rock songs, Roger slides in as much Led Zeppelin as possible.
With his ear for music, it’s no wonder that Roger is drawn to Harleys. “I love the sound of Harleys,” said Roger, who customizes his bikes with pipes to make the sound his own. He began riding Harleys when he was 18 years old. His favorite all-time Harley was the one he purchased after he moved to Las Vegas in 1993. At that time, it seemed like everyone in Sin City wanted a Harley. He looked all over for the perfect bike. Once he found the one he wanted in New Orleans, he flew to the city, took a cab to the dealership, and rode his newly purchased Harley Heritage Softail home.
We’re lucky to call Roger one of our own. In the Exhibit City News article, Roger said, “I work for Amanda…Amanda is the type of person that you don’t want to let down. You want to do a good job for her.”
Roger remembers a time when he and the Nuvista crew were up until 3 am finding a solution for a client. “They wanted to put a Mercedes on a small stage, and the design wasn’t working,” said Roger. Because Home Depot and Lowes close at 10 pm, the crew hunted down materials and lumber from local sources. During the night, the Nuvista crew redesigned and rebuilt the stage in time for show opening. A seasoned trade show industry pro, Roger said, “The show is going to open up whether you’re ready or not. We pulled it together somehow… I guess that’s being persistent!”
