Las Vegas Convention Center’s $890 Million Renovation

Posted on May 16, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) has approved the schematic design, timeline, and budget for the proposed Enhancement Program for the Las Vegas Convention Center. Said Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO: “The overriding goal of the program is to enhance the customer experience for everyone using this facility. This design improves the functionality, usability, and lifespan of our building for decades to come.”

The majority of the work is set to be complete by the end of 2010. Some meeting room renovation is scheduled for 2011 to accommodate trade show clients.

As part of the program, the Las Vegas Convention Center will be adding a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Substation and a Clark County Fire Station, becoming the only facility in the country with these on-site amenities. Both units will feature state-of-the-art equipment and personnel focused on homeland security to provide services to the convention center, surrounding neighborhood, and parts of the Strip corridor.

The Las Vegas Convention Center opened in 1959 with the World Congress of Flight, and has hosted some of the largest trade shows in the world since. In 2006, the building housed more than 90 trade shows and is one of the busiest facilities in the country.
