Plans Underway for $1.4B Vegas Convention Center Expansion

Las Vegas is working on an expansion and renovation plan for its convention center facilities. The proposed $1.4 billion effort would be funded by a hotel-tax increase, and would go north on the former site of the Riviera on South Las Vegas Boulevard. The site is now an empty lot that the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority uses as an outdoor exhibition space. The renovation project could start as soon as 2018.

Part of the plan also involves job creation, increasing visitors and generating more revenue to the local economy. A larger convention center is expected to add $810 million to the Las Vegas economy, and generate 22,000 temporary and permanent jobs.

The Las Vegas Convention Center, owned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, is at 3150 Paradise Rd.
