  • Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas has completed a $100 million USD redesign of their convention facilities.
  • The Mandalay Bay Convention Center is one of the largest in the area with a 2.1 million square foot floor.
  • In addition to upgraded networking resources, the interior design was reimagined.

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, a premier venue for top-tier industry events and trade shows, has proudly completed a $100 million overhaul of its 2.1 million-square-foot convention center. This extensive remodel, aimed at meeting the demands of modern meetings and events, features enhanced technology infrastructure, additional dynamic digital signage, and a fresh design that complements the resort’s tropical-inspired aesthetic.

“Meetings and conventions are vital to Las Vegas’ success, and the renovation of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center underscores our commitment to this essential sector,” said Ernest Stovall, VP of Hotel Sales for Mandalay Bay. “Our goal is to evolve with the meetings industry to meet the needs of today’s customers. Based on invaluable insights from our customer advisory board, we crafted a space at Mandalay Bay that sets a new standard in excellence and reflects the future of modern meetings, events, and trade shows.”

Over the past two and a half years, the reimagined convention center has successfully hosted some of the nation’s most high-profile events and trade shows, including Shoptalk Spring in March 2024. Sophie Wawro, Global President of Shoptalk, praised the remodeled center, stating, “We enjoyed hosting our event in the newly remodeled convention center, utilizing features such as the new digital signage and upgraded amenities. Outside of the fantastic convention space, we love holding our events at Mandalay Bay because of the great team and the extensive capabilities the property offers, such as the restaurants, rooms, and even the beach.”

Recognizing the importance of seamless communication, Mandalay Bay has implemented state-of-the-art technology upgrades. The installation of cutting-edge Cat6A Ethernet cabling throughout the convention center has doubled the frequency of data transmission, enabling lightning-fast speeds up to 9400% faster. The center now boasts 11 dynamic digital walls, up to 24′ x 13′, strategically positioned for brand placements, sponsorships, and targeted event messaging. Additionally, 20 double-sided 55″ mobile flexible display units facilitate effortless navigation to meeting rooms and events. The installation of RFID locks on all meeting room doors and over 200 motion detection cameras enhances security and accessibility.

The redesigned convention space features a bright and vibrant atmosphere that aligns with Mandalay Bay’s tropical-inspired brand. Conceptualized by the MGM Resorts International Design Group in collaboration with Dezmotif Studios, the contemporary design incorporates practical improvements such as enhanced lighting, streamlined signage, and inviting seating areas. The design includes white-washed walls and ceilings adorned with bold floral patterns in cerulean and coral tones, complemented by warm walnut accent walls. In addition to the redesign of all pre-function spaces, meeting rooms, and ballrooms, Mandalay Bay’s 1 million square feet of exhibit space has undergone a rejuvenation, including new paint, covered pillars, and relocated strobe lights.

As part of MGM Resorts’ commitment to promoting diverse and underrepresented artists within its corporate Fine Art program, the Mandalay Bay Convention Center now showcases captivating new works by artists Thandiwe Muriu and Sarah Anne Johnson, among others.

In addition to the convention center enhancements, Mandalay Bay is enriching its integrated resort experience through a series of dynamic upgrades and new venues. These enhancements aim to elevate the client experience and provide everything needed to facilitate successful events under one roof. Developments include the recent remodel of all 424 rooms and suites at Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas; new restaurant openings such as Orla by Michael Mina and Caramá by Wolfgang Puck; and the introduction of Swingers, a high-end, 21-and-over mini-golf and cocktail concept from London and New York City, and Bob Marley Hope Road, an immersive experience honoring Bob Marley, both opening in late 2024.
