Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas will open two new event spaces this month and complete renovations of its convention center.
Meeting professionals and attendees are going to love The Event Space at Crystals, with 13,000 sq. ft. of flexible, multilevel space that can accommodate 980 guests. The lavish event area, located adjacent to Aria at The Shops of Crystals, overlooks the popular water features, Lumia and Focus Water Wall, creating an unforgettable backdrop for receptions.
“Since opening in December 2009, Aria has been a top choice for convention and corporate business, and this refresh with special new touches allows us to further improve our attendees’ experience,” says Tony Yousfi, vice president of sales for Aria. “The value of face-to-face meetings is evident by the growth and demand and we remain committed to providing the best of the best.”
Aria’s impressive roster of eateries will now include Herringbone, which will feature the resort’s first indoor-outdoor dining experience. With indoor seating for 111 and outdoor seating for 66, Herringbone will offer California-inspired cuisine by chef Brian Malarkey. Carbone, which serves Classic Italian-American cuisine, opened in October. Among the private dining areas is the Red Room, which features a Murano Glass Crystal Chandelier and can accommodate up to 105.
The AAA Five Diamond and LEED Gold certified resort also boasts 300,000 sq. ft. of convention center space. Among the latest additions are new media walls, high-tech furniture, charging stations and registration areas. The four media walls are customizable and are expected to be used for sponsorship displays, conference signage, meeting updates and news programming.
New tech tables and charging capabilities throughout the space will allow attendees to stay connected. The new furniture arrangement in the prefunction area increases the seating capacity to accommodate more than 200 people and is designed to enhance collaborations and engagement.
Group check-in and check-out experiences have been improved, with new mobile check-in so attendees can bypass the hotel lobby and head straight to their rooms or next meetings.
