Mandalay Bay announces $66 million investment in Convention Centre to draw new business to south end of The Strip

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino has announced plans to expand its award winning convention center to over 2 million square feet, in a move to draw more conferences and events to the southern end of the world famous Las Vegas Strip. Already a leader in the city’s meetings and convention industry, Mandalay Bay plans to add exhibit space and underground parking to create one of the most flexible and customer-focused convention facility in North America.

The addition of more than 350,000 square feet of exhibit space, will elevate the MGM Resorts International property from its current ranking of No.7 in North America to No.5, in terms of both overall square feet and exhibit space. The $66 million construction is scheduled to begin this autumn, with the new exhibition areas available in August 2015. A main feature will be a 70,000 square foot ballroom which will allow large function space, as well as break-out areas for corporate groups.

A hotel renowned for its with environmental responsibilities, an additional feature of the expansion will be the installation of the world’s largest convention centre rooftop solar panel. Combined with a smaller panel, scheduled for completion in August, the panels will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 1,300 homes.

Las Vegas has been the No. 1 trade show destination for 20 years, and this significant investment demonstrates Mandalay Bay’s continued commitment to the city of Las Vegas.
