Caesars Entertainment Corporation has broken ground on its newest development, CAESARS FORUM, a $375 million, 550,000 sq ft conference center in Las Vegas.
CAESARS FORUM will be the first facility of this size built on one level and will feature the two largest pillarless ballrooms in the world, equivalent to twenty-seven tennis courts or three ice hockey rinks. It will also feature FORUM Plaza, the first 100,000 sq ft outdoor meeting and event space in Las Vegas.
FORUM Plaza allows planners to host receptions, meetings and live entertainment with the Las Vegas Strip as the backdrop. The conference center is also within walking distance to more than 20,000 Caesars Entertainment hotel rooms and is adjacent to the LINQ Promenade retail district.
“Caesars Entertainment has eight properties located in the center of the Las Vegas strip – more than any other competitor,” said Mark Frissora, president and chief executive officer for Caesars Entertainment. “With our geographic advantage, and the demand for meetings space exceeding available inventory, this project builds on our strategy to provide a value-add to meeting planners, guests and investors.”
The groundbreaking ceremony took place on the future site of the conference center, located directly behind The LINQ Promenade.
