golf450Featured VS Course Shadow Creek Strengthening its position as a leader in the meetings and convention industry, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino today announced plans to expand its award-winning Convention Center. Based on demand for additional space, the resort will add new exhibit space, underground parking and increase overall square footage, creating the most flexible and customer-focused convention facility in North America. Mandalay Bay is a wholly owned subsidiary of MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM).

Plans include the addition of more than 350,000 square feet of exhibit space to the existing 1.7 million-square-foot Mandalay Bay Convention Center as well as underground parking and more carpeted ballroom space. The new spaces will allow Mandalay Bay to grow current shows, pursue new and larger corporate partners and achieve greater utilization of the entire facility. Upon completion, the Mandalay Bay Convention Center will boast more than 2 million total square feet and 1.1 million square feet of exhibit space. This elevates its ranking in North America from No. 7 to No. 5 in total square feet and from No. 11 to No. 5 in square feet of exhibit space.



“Several long-standing customers approached us with a need for additional space to grow their business; they looked to us to be a solution provider, and we went to work,” said Chuck Bowling, President and COO of Mandalay Bay. “In addition to enabling our current clients to develop larger events, the additional space and new flexibility will allow us to attract new business to Las Vegas. We believe this investment will increase visitation to Las Vegas, driving incremental business to MGM Resorts’ portfolio and the city overall.”
