“As Nevada’s leader in COVID-19 testing, with more than 1.2 million tests performed, UMC takes pride in partnering with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to provide convention attendees with access to the high-quality testing services they deserve,” UMC CEO Mason Van Houweling said in a statement. “The UMC Convention Testing Center serves as yet another example of UMC’s unwavering commitment to safeguarding the health of community members and visitors in Southern Nevada.”

The testing center is open on weekdays, with additional availability possible during trade shows at the convention center. Each test costs $130, according to a news release.
