We want to assure you that the safety and security of our ORX attendees, vendors and staff are our greatest concerns. The Red Rock is more than 15 miles from the Las Vegas strip where this incident took place and officials believe no further threat is present. We're looking forward to hosting you next week for a very special ORX and supporting Las Vegas in its time of need.
