Las Vegas Convention Center District

The Las Vegas Convention Center District is a re-imagination of the convention center and surrounding area. The initial phases of the project include an expansion of the convention center, adding 600,000 square feet of new exhibit space and the accompanying meeting space and service facilities. The second phase consists of the complete renovation of the existing convention center facility, including the addition of new meeting space to appropriately serve the current exhibit space footprint.
