Las Vegas Convention Center expansion reaches new milestone

The Las Vegas Convention Center has reached another milestone as part of its US$980 million ($1.6 billion) West Hall expansion.

Construction workers on behalf of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) have commenced the extensive process of pouring 55,742 square metres of concrete flooring in the main exhibit hall.

The process will take between four and five months to complete, and is a major step forward in the expansion construction, which is now 77 per cent complete.

The Las Vegas Convention Center’s West Hall expansion will add nearly 140,000 square metres of space to the existing 297,290-square-metre campus.

In addition to the exhibit hall, the expansion will feature an outdoor plaza, a grand atrium and state-of-the-art design and technology. The expansion is slated for completion in December 2020.
