On July 16, Caesars Entertainment broke ground on a conference center in Las Vegas slated to open in 2020 directly behind the Linq Promenade and with direct access to the Linq Hotel, Flamingo Las Vegas and Harrah's Las Vegas.
The $375 million Caesars Forum will be a 550,000-square-foot, single-level meetings facility connected to 5,000 Caesars-owned hotel rooms and a relatively quick walk from 20,000 other rooms under the company umbrella. The development will include a 100,000-square-foot outdoor event space called Forum Plaza as well as the two largest pillarless ballrooms in the world, covering the same area as 27 tennis courts or three hockey rinks, if you like to measure real estate in athletic arenas.
In addition to those sizable spaces, the Forum will offer two 40,000-square-foot ballrooms, six boardrooms and more than 100 rooms for breakouts and smaller meetings. With two miles of airwalls, the property is designed to be flexible, adapting to the needs and configurations of various groups and events.
Though the new facility is still two years away, Caesars Forum has already made its first booking, courtesy of the American School Counselor Association, which will bring 3,500 attendees in July 2021, as well as $70 million in conference contracts for the property.
