MGM Resorts continues to lead the way in “meeting” expectations for groups of all sizes through convention center expansions designed to accommodate client growth and attract new business; collaborative, innovative meeting spaces to inspire the mind; and the company’s first all-inclusive incentive group packages.
ARIA’s major project began in May of 2016. In an effort to enhance its LEED Gold-certified convention center they will deliver an additional 200,000 square feet of technologically advanced, flexible meeting space across four stories, for a total of over 500,000 square feet. Highlighted by stunning indoor/open-air verandas, dramatic views of The Park and T-Mobile Arena and the one-of-a-kind Cypress Executive Lounge with private suites, stocked pantry, conference room and library, the expanded space will put the “wow” in any event.
MGM Grand broke ground in June 2017 on an expansion of its award-winning conference center. The $130 million project added 250,000 square feet for a total of more than 850,000 square feet. Stay Well Meetings, the industry’s first-ever wellness meetings experience (which launched at MGM Grand), also is expanding its footprint. Demonstrating the demand for a new way to conduct business, Stay Well Meetings feature amenities and programs that offer the kinds of healthy, productive and creative work environments that many clients are actively seeking. The expansion is scheduled for completion by the end of 2018.
As part of Monte Carlo’s transformation into Park MGM, the resort has introduced Phase I of its new 77,000-square-foot conference space and welcomed its first major client during CES, the city’s largest annual show. Combining innovative, non-traditional spaces, an outdoor terrace and flexible design, Park MGM will fill an unmet need in Las Vegas for small groups, while also offering the ability to host up to 5,000 attendees in the customizable Park Theater.
In Phase II, opening later in 2018, Park MGM will introduce Las Vegas’ first Executive Meeting Center (EMC) and Idea Studio – a high-touch, high-tech meeting venues designed to maximize productivity for small groups. Additionally, Park MGM will include an installation of Stay Well Rooms and Meetings, the most comprehensive wellness room and meeting experiences.
Finally, set on 120 acres and home to three distinctive resort brands, this destination offers guests nearly anything their hearts desire at tropically indulgent Mandalay Bay. While listening to the waves, groups can relax and enjoy floor-to-ceiling views of Mandalay Bay Beach during their breakfast, lunch, dinner or reception.
Available any time of day year-round, planners can book a seated dinner for 80, a reception for 150 or a prime viewing area for a Summer Concert on the Beach within the 2,425-foot elevated and air-conditioned space. For an added wow factor, planners also can book The Beach and the exclusive Villas Soleil, atop the Beachside Ballroom, for a larger soiree.
