Mandalay Bay's convention centre to undergo $100m renovation

MGM Resorts-owned Las Vegas hotel Mandalay Bay has unveiled plans for a remodel of its 2.1 million square-foot convention centre, which is estimated to cost around $100m.

The concept features a tropical ambience and, according to the hotel, will come with super-quick internet speeds, which can download a 4k movie in 30 seconds.

Furthermore, it will have 11 digital walls for advertising, sponsorship opportunities and targeted event messaging, RFID locks on meeting room doors, and 200 new motion detection cameras.

The space also highlights ‘diverse and underrepresented artists’ through its decorative art, with work by Thandiwe Muriu and Sarah Anne Johnson adorning the walls.

Ernest Stovall, VP of Sales for Mandalay Bay, said: "With Mandalay Bay home to many of the city's top events and trade shows year after year, we recognised the need to upgrade the space to reflect modern-day needs and create a timeless design complemented by our premier service experience.

“We listened to feedback from meeting planners over recent years and are confident this refreshed and upgraded space will exceed their needs and expectations in every way."

The remodel is expected to be finished by the end of 2024. Earlier this month, MGM Resorts announced it had appointed a new President of MGM Resorts Interactive in Gary Fritz.

He will oversee and advance the group’s diversification strategy by expanding its digital platforms organically and through acquisitions.

MGM Resorts International CEO & President Bill Hornbuckle said of the appointment: “Enhancing and growing our digital businesses is one of MGM Resorts’ top priorities, and Gary is uniquely positioned to help the company build on successes and seize new opportunities.”
