Caesars Entertainment has announced plans to develop CAESARS FORUM, a brand new 550,000-square-foot conference center in Las Vegas. The $375 million investment will feature the two largest pillarless ballrooms in the world, located at the center of the Las Vegas Strip. Scheduled to officially open in 2020, Caesars expects to break ground on CAESARS FORUM early in the second quarter of 2018. CAESARS FORUM will be the ideal location for anyone looking to host meetings and events in Las Vegas.
“Las Vegas is one of the most exciting meetings destinations in the world and the Caesars name has long been synonymous with the glamour and energy of Las Vegas,” said Executive Director of the American School Counselor Association Richard Wong. “CAESARS FORUM will have the perfect combination of size, facilities, and location to provide our 3,500 conference participants with the best professional development and an outrageously good time.”
CAESARS FORUM will feature 300,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, with two 110,000-square-foot ballrooms, two 40,000-square-foot ballrooms and six boardrooms. The two 110,000-square-foot ballrooms are each divisible into 41 sections, while the two 40,000-square-foot ballrooms are each divisible into 22 sections. The ballrooms will be perfect for any event including general sessions, breakouts, meals and exhibit space. The ballrooms will be beautifully appointed, offering carpet, lighting fixtures and a finished ceiling. The conference center can hold meetings for more than 10,000 attendees and will offer the latest in technology, a modern design, natural light and a neutral pallet. In line with Caesars’ environmental initiatives, the conference center will be LEED Silver certified. CAESARS FORUM will be built all on one level with two loading docks, making it easy to set up and tear down meetings.
CAESARS FORUM will have direct access to the 5,000 rooms at LINQ and Harrah’s hotels through the FORUM Sky Bridge. Flamingo Las Vegas is accessible through the LINQ Promenade and offers another 3,500 hotel rooms. In addition, the conference center will be walking distance to eight of Caesars Entertainment’s Las Vegas properties providing accessibility to 20,000 hotel rooms. With so many options, planners can offer a range of hotel rates to their attendees providing complete flexibility. The FORUM Sky Bridge will feature a monorail stop, giving attendees an effortless way to get around the Las Vegas Strip.
The conference center will feature FORUM PLAZA, a 100,000-square-foot outdoor plaza. The plaza will be perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner under the stars. The outdoor space can also be used for wellness breaks, receptions and CSR activities. The FORUM PLAZA will be connected to the LINQ Promenade, anchored by the world-famous High Roller. The High Roller can accommodate 40 attendees per pod and is perfect for cocktail receptions and coffee breaks, offering the best view of Las Vegas. The LINQ Promenade features shopping, dining and entertainment. Groups can buyout the LINQ Promenade for a private event or even utilize Brooklyn Bowl, a concert venue located at the center of the promenade. Caesars is already taking reservations for this state-of-the-art conference center.
“The American School Counselor Association is proud and honored to be the first to commit to holding our conference at CAESARS FORUM and we appreciate the collaboration to make this possible,” said Wong.
