CAESARS FORUM hits construction milestone

CAESARS FORUM, the new event venue being constructed in Las Vegas by Caesars Entertainment, has reached a new construction milestone.

The venue is 70% completed, ahead of its March 2020 opening date. Over $390m worth of business has already been booked for meetings and events, alongside one million room nights.

In the last 20 months, more than 125 contracts for meetings and events have been signed. Meetings and events industry companies including ConferenceDirect, Cvent, HelmsBriscoe, MPI and PCMA have selected CAESARS FORUM for their annual meetings.

The $375m conference centre will carry a LEED silver certification and features the world’s two largest pillarless ballrooms – each equivalent to one football field in length.

CAESARS FORUM will be the first facility of this size built on one level, and the adjacent Forum Plaza will be the first 100,000 square-foot dedicated outdoor event space in Las Vegas.

Michael Massari, Chief Sales Officer, Caesars Entertainment, commented: “One million room nights booked before opening far exceeds our expectations and is a testament to the hard work of our sales team, and customers’ excitement about CAESARS FORUM.

“CAESARS FORUM construction is on track and I’m thrilled with our progress. The building exterior is complete, and the team is working diligently on the interior, staying on schedule to open next March. Operationally, we have the core team in place and have already begun planning events for 2020 and beyond.”
