On a sprawling 185 acres along the Thames River in southeastern Connecticut, Mohegan Sun is conveniently located between Boston and New York. But with its sweeping scenic views of Mystic County, the 1,175-room resort feels like it’s a world away.

When it comes to meetings and events at Mohegan Sun, exceptional service is an expectation, not an exception. An on-site staff of professionals can help planners design a meeting to fit any objective or budget, and whether it’s a high-tech presentation or a property-wide scavenger hunt, the resort’s team of CMP-certified event-services managers can bring any idea to life.

Just a few steps from the hotel’s 100,000-square-foot convention center, the 10,000-seat Mohegan Sun Arena can be transformed into 30,000 square feet of exhibition space for trade shows and conventions. Other on-site venues include the 350-seat Cabaret Theatre, 300-seat Wolf Den, Leffingwells Martini Lounge (located under the world’s largest indoor planetarium dome), a 17,500-square-foot outdoor terrace, and Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug - perfect for golfing events. And from “Cheeseburgers in Paradise” at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville to lobster-avocado shellfish cocktails at Bobby Flay’s Bar American, dining options at the resort suit every palate and budget.

Mohegan Sun’s 1,175 guest rooms have been designed with business travelers in mind - accommodations include at least 475 square feet furnished with full-sized desks, ergonomic chairs, and multiple two-line telephones. When it’s time to wind down, attendees can peruse the property’s 75 shops, restaurants, bars, and lounges, or one of three casinos, featuring the latest slot machines, tons of table games, and a 42-table poker room.
