Several large scale and innovative meeting and event spaces are coming to the destination, including Allegiant Stadium (the future home of the Las Vegas Raiders franchise), the MSG Sphere and CAESARS FORUM. But the vital expansion and renovation currently underway at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) is not to be missed. Here’s what you need to know about this monumental project.
New and Newly Renovated space
The LVCC is currently in Phase Two of a $935 million expansion and renovation, which will see the addition of a new West Hall, bringing the total campus exhibit space to 2.5 million square feet. This will include 600,000 square feet of new, leasable exhibit space, an outdoor terrace and a grand atrium. West Hall is currently slated to be operational in January 2021. Additionally, as part of the renovation project and to meet the ever-changing needs of the industry, the existing areas of the LVCC will be reinvented as a state-of-the-art facility with modern architecture, the latest meeting technology and security features.
Elon Musk is investing in LVCC
The LVCC is making history thanks to an incredible partnership with Elon Musk’s The Boring Company. The company is developing an underground people mover that will allow convention attendees to traverse LVCC’s 200-acre campus in just 90 seconds. The project will consist of two tunnels, each one mile long, and with the potential to expand to link the convention center to other key attractions across Las Vegas.
Attendees can’t resist Las Vegas
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority reports that Las Vegas enjoys an 8 percent attendance boost compared to most other meeting destinations. And with approximately 150,000 hotel rooms, this city offers one of the best group value propositions in the world. McCarran International Airport provides nonstop service from more than 130 U.S. and international cities and is just 3.5 miles from LVCC, making your guests’ arrivals and departures a breeze.
