Construction Beam Hoisted at Las Vegas Convention Center

The tradesmen and tradeswomen working on the Las Vegas Convention Center Expansion project recently signed a commemorative “final” beam that was hoisted into the expansion project’s new 600,000-square-foot exhibit hall. The LVCC Expansion program includes the 1.4 million-square-foot expansion project and the renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center’s existing 3.2 million square feet. The raising of the beam in the new exhibit hall celebrated a significant milestone in the completion of the expansion project. In the fall, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) will recognize the official “topping off” of the entire expansion project.

The Las Vegas Convention Center expansion is more than an expansion of the existing Convention Center, it is also a reimagination of the space, a renovation of the existing facility and a comprehensive upgrade of the facility's amenities. This state-of-the-art project offers a distinct area designed to do business and ensure our economic future by continuing to provide the unparalleled experience our guests and clients have come to expect. Las Vegas thrives on evolution and reinvention, and the LVCC project will give us a convention center fit for one of the world's most iconic and vibrant cities.


The LVCC's Phase Two is an $935 million expansion project that will add 1.4 million square feet to the current convention center facility, including at least 600,000 square feet of new, leasable exhibit space. The expansion will also feature a main entrance and grand lobby off Convention Center Drive, meeting rooms, pre-function space and service and support areas.

Phase Three will be the complete renovation of the existing 3.2 million-square-foot facility, with a projected completion date of 2023.

The expansion is slated for completion in time to welcome CES in 2021.

The Phase Three renovation will begin as the Phase Two expansion is coming to a close. The renovation will be done in phases, one hall at a time, so that the Las Vegas Convention Center always has 1.9 million square feet of leasable exhibition space (the amount that is currently available). The phased approach will ensure that no business will be displaced during the renovation.

Phase Three has a projected completion date of 2023.

Las Vegas is a city built for moments that change lives.
