Alongside 20 acres of available outdoor exhibit space, Diamond Lot also includes more than 3,000 parking spaces and four vehicle access locations. The new space was unveiled at an official event earlier this week. It is located on the the former site of the Riviera Hotel & Casino. 

The launch finalises the first phase of the Las Vegas Convention Center District's expansion and renovation plans, which include adding 600,000sqft of exhibit space, new meeting rooms and other amenities, as well as renovating the entire existing property. 

The project aims to cement Las Vegas as North America’s premier business destination, allowing shows to grow in both square footage and attendance. 

LVCVA president/CEO Rossi Ralenkotter said: "The Diamond Lot represents the first step in our commitment to Las Vegas’ future with the expansion and renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The development of the Las Vegas Convention Center District will provide our clients with the premier facility they want and need, and it will support thousands of jobs and increased economic activity in our community."
