More convention and meeting space is coming to the Strip and we don’t meet just the expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center; The MGM Grand has broken ground on an expansion to its Convention Center which will add 250,000 square feet of space to give it more than 850,000 square feet at the resort in total. The expansion will give MGM Resorts more than 4 million square feet of convention and meeting space at its Las Vegas resorts. Included in this total is 2 million square feet at the Mandalay Bay which has been greatly expanded as well as the recent expansion at Aria. The area being used for the MGM Grand expansion is near the resorts parking garage at Koval Lane and Tropicana Avenue and will also see the large circular driveway to the current convention center being replaced by the new expansion.
