On October 24, 2019, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) marked the Las Vegas Convention Center's (LVCC) significant construction milestone, with completion of more than 50 percent of the 1.4-million-square-foot expansion. "We're excited to show off the unobstructed views of the new 600,000 square-foot West Hall," said Lori Nelson-Kraft, senior vice president of communications and government affairs. "When completed, this will feature the largest column-free space in North America." Construction of the LVCC expansion is expected to be completed in December 2020. Renovation of the existing 3.2-million-square-foot convention centre will begin in summer 2021 and the entire $1.52 billion development is expected to be completed in 2024. Overall, the destination encompasses nearly 12 million square feet of meeting space and is home to three of North America's 10 largest convention centres. In addition to the LVCC expansion and renovation, continued investment in the Las Vegas meetings and conventions industry remains strong with nearly 3.5 million additional square feet of meeting space coming online within the next five years. Currently, there is an estimated $10 billion in new attraction and resort development underway with an additional $6.4 billion planned through 2024.
