Mandalay Bay Completes Convention Center Expansion

Mandalay Bay Completes Convention Center Expansion

Project Part of Overall Transformation of Las Vegas’ Premier Meetings, Convention and Leisure Resort Destination

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino

The Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Convention Center expansion is now complete with this month’s opening of the 70,000-square-foot Oceanside Ballroom. The $70 million expansion includes 350,000 square feet of new exhibit space, a 20,000-square-foot foyer and underground parking, which all opened in August. The Mandalay Bay Convention Center now boasts more than 2 million total square feet and over 900,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space with the ability to grow current shows and attract new corporate, association and incentive groups.

With the expansion’s completion, the final phase of Mandalay Bay’s resort-wide, multi-year transformation is the $100 million redesign of more than 3,000 guest rooms and suites, wrapping up in February.  The resort, with three hotels including Delano Las Vegas, new world-class dining, high-energy entertainment, nightlife and more, offers infinite possibilities and flexibility for meeting planners to customize their events from large, premium tradeshows and corporate gatherings to intimate executive meetings and incentive experiences.   

“To strengthen our position as a leader in the meetings industry, we have made significant changes and enhancements to provide a unique resort destination with diverse and comprehensive options to remain a top choice for corporate groups and trade shows of all sizes,” said Stephanie Glanzer, vice president of Sales at Mandalay Bay. 

The resort’s state-of-the-art, high-density Wi-Fi has been added to the new space to accommodate more attendees, provide unique custom solutions based on the needs of the group and allow for the most advanced presentations. The system’s benefits include the convenience of a one-time log-in for convention goers during their stay and the seamless connectivity throughout Mandalay Bay, from the convention center to public indoor and outdoor spaces to the guest rooms. A distinct capability that sets this Wi-Fi apart from all others is convention attendees will stay connected with the same high-performance Wi-Fi when visiting any MGM Resorts destination along The Strip from Mandalay Bay to The Mirage, including MGM Grand, Bellagio and ARIA.  

Further solidifying what already is the largest convention center solar array in the world, the expanded Mandalay Bay Convention Center is incorporating an additional rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) array spanning 8 acres. Upon completion in early 2016, the added portion of the array will generate approximately 1.9 MW with an approximate annual production of 3.4M kilowatt hours. Covering more than 28 acres, the combined array will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 1,300 homes.

Mandalay Bay and the Mandalay Bay Convention Center hold coveted Five Key ratings from the Green Key Eco-Rating and Meetings Programs. In addition, TripAdvisor has awarded the resort Gold in its GreenLeaders Program. Mandalay Bay integrates environmentally responsible practices into its operations including the recycling of more than 80 percent of all convention materials. From sustainable service ware and organic, sustainable menus to zero waste recycling, Mandalay Bay’s Convention Service Managers offer a number of options to help each group conduct green and socially responsible meetings.

Las Vegas has been the No. 1 trade show destination in North America for 21 consecutive years, and this significant investment demonstrates Mandalay Bay’s continued commitment to the city of Las Vegas.

Mandalay Bay Convention Center Expansion on Schedule to Open Phase 1 in August with Key Construction Features Completed

Las Vegas’ Premier Meetings and Convention Destination Completes Underground Parking Garage, Construction Footings and Columns

 

Group business is booming and so is construction on the Mandalay Bay Convention Center expansion, adding 350,000 square feet of exhibit space, more carpeted ballroom space and 900 underground parking spaces for a total of more than 2 million square feet. The foundation has been laid and the underground garage, construction footings and columns all have been completed.

The $66 million project is on schedule to welcome its first attendees in August, with the anticipated completion of the entire expansion and renovation in January 2016.

Construction began in October 2014 and since then 88,000 cubic yards of dirt have been excavated, 29,115 cubic yards of concrete poured and 200 construction jobs created. Forming the framework of the expansion’s Phase I is 335 tons of joists, 650 tons of trusses, 1,600 tons of structural steel and 548 tons of decking.

With the Mandalay Bay Convention Center expansion, Mandalay Bay can accommodate growing tradeshows as well as attract new shows with over 900,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space. The added carpeted space will allow for more corporate groups and associations. The project represents the continued commitment Mandalay Bay is making to the meetings and convention industry and to Las Vegas, the No. 1 trade show destination.

“With business volume increasing, this change provides us with more flexibility to host a wider variety of groups,” said Stephanie Glanzer, vice president of Sales for Mandalay Bay. “Whether hosting a small corporate group, mid-size association or large tradeshow, each group will have their own dedicated area within our convention center along with a dedicated team to assist in every detail.”

MOSI BICYCLES TO LAUNCH CHIC AND SLEEK COLLECTION AT 2014 PROJECT LAS VEGAS

MOSI BICYCLES TO LAUNCH CHIC AND SLEEK COLLECTION AT 2014 PROJECT LAS VEGAS

Timeless Bicycle Designs for the Fashion Forward

Mosi Bicycles, the newest company innovating vintage European-style bicycles with a modern twist, has announced they will be showcasing at the PROJECT show in Las Vegas, February 18-20, 2014. Specializing in the beauty of bicycling and the need for relaxed stylish riding, Mosi Bicycles is an obvious resident in the fashion-forward world of today. The showcase will feature the entire Mode Collection by Mosi Bicycles, as well as the polished and pristine accessories by Buck and Wing that accompany these chic bicycles.

“Mosi Bicycles is everything fashion – this is why presenting our bicycles at PROJECT Las Vegas is such a perfect fit for us,” said Darren Buck, President of Mosi Bicycles. “The elegant designs of each of our beautiful bicycles go hand-in-hand with the latest styles and trends no matter the destination. We are looking forward to showing how owning a Mosi bicycle can bring more luxury, comfort and satisfaction to your daily life.”

After two years of extensive product design and research, Mosi Bicycles’ official product launch is this Spring 2014. The Mode Collection by Mosi Bicycles line consists of four very sleek and stylish bicycles, each having their own personality and flair that puts them above all the rest. Mosi Bicycles does not sacrifice beauty for quality – all Mosi frames are made from high-tensile steel that absorbs more of the imperfections on the road, giving you an overall smooth cycling experience. The rear roller-disk brakes provide more control for the rider. Each Mosi bicycle is equipped with a sleek and modern Shimano internal gearing system in either 3 or 7-speeds, depending on the model. These easy-to-maintain, modern hub systems provide each Mosi bicycle a range of hassle-free gear to accommodate variable riding conditions, while maintaining a clean exterior look. The Buck & Wing saddles and grips, which have been specially selected and paired to each bicycle model, are made of genuine Australian leather that softens over time and adds even more style to an already classic look.

Hosted at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Mosi Bicycles will be promoting its new collection across from the lounge and in between the Lacoste and Weatherproof booths, Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
