Architects submitted their designs for the phase two expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center to the Board of Directors of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA).

“This is one of the most important days in the history of the LVCVA. These drawings show a modern, innovative design that is as iconic as our vibrant city,” said Rossi Ralenkotter chief executive officer of the LVCVA. “Southern Nevada’s economy is driven by tourism and this expansion will propel our convention center forward to enable us to maintain our status as the number-one tradeshow destination in North America.”

Phase two of the expansion project, estimated to cost $860 million, will add 1.4 million square feet to the current facility, including 600,000 square feet of exhibit space.

This expansion is slated for completion in 2021, in time for the annual CES convention.

Phase three of the project will feature the renovation of the existing 3.2 million-square-foot facility, with a completion date projected for 2023.

“Our biggest goal was to give Las Vegas a convention center that will be iconic, with a design that nods to all of the very unique architecture in the city’s history, while also providing contemporary, cohesive design aesthetic across the entire property,” said Rob Svedberg, principal of tvsdesign. "Being iconic in Las Vegas is different than being iconic in other places, and we really want this building to be unique in the marketplace."

"[We want] to provide something no other convention center can, while also having a strong identity, so that when someone sees it, they immediately know that it’s the Las Vegas Convention Center," he added.
