The new ballroom complements the 32,500sqm exhibition space at the Mandalay Bay, which opened in August.

The Las Vegas resort now boasts more than 83,612sqm of contiguous event space. As part of its transformation, £70.6m is being spent on redesigning around 3,000 guestrooms and suites, due to be completed next month.

High-density wi-fi has been added to the new space and boasts a one-time log-in for convention goers during their stay, as well as seamless connectivity throughout the resort, from the convention centre to public indoor and outdoor spaces to the guest ooms.

An additional rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) array spanning eight acres is also being added, taking the resort's total solar array to more than 28 acres and generating enough electricity to power the equivalent of 1,300 homes.

"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.
