In July 2022, Billings detailed the company’s plans to open a $2bn integrated resort project in the UAE, as it seeks to develop and grow the brand worldwide.
As the UAE is a limited supply market, Wynn will hold the only gaming licence in the region, therefore giving the company exclusive access to the high volume of tourists and visitors to the region.
“There’s a narrative around here that Vegas consistently reinvents itself. I actually don’t think that’s the case, per se. What I think the town does very, very well is find additional sources of demand and bolt them on. So it started with gaming, with the opening of the Mirage it became about more upscale amenities, food and beverage, group and convention, and now sports. And I think Vegas is incredibly good at that.” Craig Billings
