Las Vegas tourism and business leaders officially broke ground on a $600 million renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) on May 9. The renovation work will continue through 2025, with construction designed to accommodate and minimize disruption to scheduled trade shows.
As part of the renovation project, a newly designed parking lot outside of the Central Hall will feature a Vegas Loop station to transport convention goers to and from Wynn and Encore Las Vegas when the completed project debuts in Spring 2024.
The renovation will extend the contemporary design, architecture and customer experience of the 1.4 million-square-foot West Hall, which debuted in June of 2021.
“We have been the No. 1 trade show destination for nearly three decades, and we are committed to being the number one trade show destination for another three decades,” said Steve Hill, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “This renovation will provide our customers with an experience that will make them want to come back year after year.”
