MGM Resorts International and New York-based Sydell Group will debut a new meetings and conference space this fall as part of Monte Carlo Resort and Casino’s transformation into the highly anticipated Park MGM.
With a combination of innovative non-traditional spaces and flexible design, Park MGM will fill an unmet need in Las Vegas for small groups, while also offering beautiful spaces to host up to 5,000 attendees.
The modern conference space will feature expansive ballrooms, flexible meeting places and an outdoor terrace. The space will be highlighted by the city’s first Executive Meeting Center (EMC) and Ideation Labs – two meeting areas designed to maximize productivity for small groups. The main conference space will be completed in Oct. 2017 with the introduction of the Executive Meeting Center and Ideation Labs in Q1 2018.
Spanning 77,000 square feet with 43 meeting rooms, Park MGM’s conference and event spaces will feature high-touch, high-tech meeting venues appealing to the ever-changing needs and preferences of meeting planners. Second-level meeting rooms will be filled with natural light and overlook the resort’s elegant pool environment. For those wanting private outdoor meeting space, the 4,345-square-foot Central Park Terrace will provide the ideal setting.
Executive Meeting Center (EMC)
The first of its kind in Las Vegas, Park MGM’s Executive Meeting Center will feature 10 separate rooms that can accommodate varying layouts ideal for classroom training, product seminars and workshops for intimate groups from 10 to 50 people. Moveable furniture with integrated power, A/V and internet will easily facilitate breakout groups to encourage collaboration. With a shared pantry setup, these spaces will make it easier to hold meetings that are both efficient and cost-effective. All-inclusive pricing packages will let meeting planners pay a flat rate per attendee instead of being tied to high fixed costs. With 80 percent of MGM Resorts’ convention groups at 100 guestrooms or less, the EMC will be an intriguing choice for many groups.
Intended to create a wide array of non-traditional workspaces, Park MGM’s Ideation Lab will allow planners and attendees to utilize best-in-class tech for strategic collaboration. Seven labs, geared toward groups of six to 25, will be designed to spur creativity and drive results. Multiple integrated displays in each room will enable users to connect seamlessly and instantly, while the furniture will be designed to encourage movement and conversation in order to maximize engagement and productivity during every meeting.
A centerpiece of Park MGM’s entertainment experience, Park Theater doubles as a signature event space. Accommodating up to 5,200 guests in 30,000 square feet of space, Park Theater is beautifully designed with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking The Strip and The Park.
