Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort, North Carolina, USA, and invited dignitaries have officially opened the resort’s fourth hotel tower, the Cherokee, and the 83,000sq.ft. Cherokee Convention Center.
The opening ceremony signifies the completion of Harrah’s Cherokee’s $330m expansion project, which has brought more than 450 jobs to the community.
Brooks Robinson, regional senior vice-president and general manager of Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos, said: “We have positioned ourselves as the leader in the entertainment industry in the Carolinas with our diversified experiences and amenities, and the completion of this three and a half-year expansion project further solidifies our standing.”
Richard Sneed, principal chief of Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI), stated: “In addition to offering unique experiences for visitors, this expansion project will attract conventions and will provide more space for businesses and associations to network in a way that has not always been accommodable in the past. This new business opportunity will provide an expanded revenue stream that will directly impact the EBCI community in a positive way for years to come.”
