YESCO WINS “BEST OF SHOW” FOR LAS VEGAS GATEWAY ARCHES
AT ANNUAL WORLD SIGN ASSOCIATES CONFERENCE
SALT LAKE CITY (October 2022) – YESCO, the 102-year-old company known for creating, repairing and maintaining internationally recognizable signs, was awarded with “Best of Show” for its notable Las Vegas Gateway Arches at this year’s annual World Sign Associates (WSA) conference in San Antonio, Texas.
Named the “coolness” sign competition, members of the WSA vote for the top sign from a renowned collection of North America’s most prestigious sign companies. This year, YESCO’s Gateway Arches received a staggering 72 percent of the vote for “Best of Show.”
The illuminated arches form a towering gateway to Las Vegas’ burgeoning Downtown and feature a pink, retro-inspired emblem suspended above the boulevard. Since its completion in 2020, the new, brightly lit, Gateway Arches have continued to welcome visitors to the City of Las Vegas as they travel north on Las Vegas Boulevard.
“The World Sign Associates conference features the best companies in the industry, so it was an honor to be awarded with ‘Best of Show’ for our Gateway Arches,” said Jeff Young, executive vice president, YESCO. “Our team worked extremely hard on this project, and we are thrilled to be recognized with such an honor.”
Other winners at this year’s WSA conference included Davinci Sign Systems for Brighton Crossings in Windsor, Colorado, in the category of signs over 100 square feet, BSC Signs for National Jewish Hospital Donor Structure in Broomfield, Colorado, in the category of signs under 100 square feet and Nagle Signs, Inc. for Farmers State Bank in Waterloo, Iowa, in the category of wall signs.
