Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of the Strips largest casino company says that there are no new plans to do any further development of hotel-casinos on the strip. MGM Resorts International which operates Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, City Center among others say that there is no value in adding new casinos. The MGM is still the most active developer on the strip for new restaurants, and retail space like the $66 million, 350,000 square foot expansion to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center which is expected to be open in August 2016 it will add 2 million feet of space. A lot people are starting to play the best US casinos online at Easy Mobile Casino, where you can gamble online. The company’s non-gaming sports and entertainment arena behind New York New York in partnership with arena developer AEG is a $350 million, 20,000 seat arena that will anchor to the Park, a new outdoor retail and dining district. The thought is instead of more places to go why not make the places already available more popular and profitable. While bringing guest a varied experience hoping to entice an even larger crowd to want to frequent the Entertainment capital of the world. Murren says that “The era of expanding casino floors is over. The evolution of the casino floor will be to shrink them. We’re going to create more modular, dynamic spaces that will include multiple utilities for social interaction.” The projects going on in the spaces between Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay are going to include retail, dining and other attractions, expected to happen during the 2016 season. And finally the front entrance of the MGM itself will be getting a facelift bringing more of this new concept to the South end of the strip. MGM is also currently building casinos in other parts of the country and the world like their $2.9 billion hotel-casino on Macau’s Cotai Strip. For the person who has never been to Las Vegas because they do not gamble now is the time to come because there are activities for everyone including the shopper, the social butterfly the partier as well as gambling and family activities. Come out and experience why so many people love Las Vegas.

While reviews of Rock In Rio have been overwhelmingly positive when we follow the money the trail stops a long way before the line of successful venture is crossed in terms of Rock In Rio festival in Las Vegas last month. Hyped as the potential savior for the area at the north end of Las Vegas these numbers are a big letdown for MGM Resorts who along with Rock in Rio USA were putting up half the money for the cost of infrastructure at the music festival’s City of Rock site. A poor musical line-up for the first year is being partially blamed for lackluster ticket sales also. Both parties understand that while Rock in Rio is a huge name in Brazil and Portugal it has no name recognition in America and maybe with time and a bit of patience and some strategic marketing if the festival returns it may grow in popularity here as well but we will have to wait and hear what plans are since all we know is that officially as per the terms of the organizer’s contract with the venue, the festival will be held biennially from 2015 through at least 2019. There were approximately 120 acts held across two weekends of two days each, and is expected to expand into a three-day, two-weekend format if the festival comes back. And after investing and losing $20 million, MGM and Rock in Rio reps are saying the Festival is still going to return next year with an expanded, six-day schedule despite tales of unfulfilled expectations along with cultural differences and a breakdown in communications that have possibly caused strife that is unlikely to be repaired. This is all speculation and gossip though as no official statement has been released by Rock in Rio and MGM Resorts. MGM is hoping to recoup some of its lost investment in the 40-acre site at the corner of Sahara Ave. and Las Vegas BLVD with other events, concerts and Las Vegas style entertainment.
