Sands Expo and Convention Center, Las Vegas

Convention Center · Traveler Resource
The Sands Expo and Convention Center is a large convention center. It opened in 1990 across the street from the original Sands Hotel, was the second largest convention center in the world when it opened.
The Sands Expo is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. At its launch in 1990, it was the only privately owned and operated convention center in the United States. It is frequently used for conventions booked at the adjoining Venetian and Palazzo hotels and casinos (which are owned by the same company) and as overflow space for conventions that outgrow the Las Vegas Convention Center.
In 2008, an expansion for the Sands Expo Center was announced. The first part would add another story to the existing building and build a new two-million square foot Expo center, built on the Sands-owned land east of the Wynn Las Vegas employee parking garage. A long pedestrian bridge will be built between the two Expos.
Also, half of the existing building will be covered by a new condo tower and hotel, adding to the already large complex, which also includes The Venetian and Palazzo.
There has been a new plan floated in may, 2015, to build a fill-in station on the Las Vegas Monorail.

  • I had the honor to accompany all the Air Cargo team that had a conference for the past three days in here. We had a cocktail first as we try their delicious appetizers and drinks. Later we went inside the ballroom, which was beautifully decorated, nice AC, wonderful music, and the most pretty and elegant table setting. The appetizer was a salmon tartare which I found to be the best thing I ate that night. So good, fresh, and so many new flavors that I loved. Then we had beef and this steak was so tender and juicy. The dessert plate was the main attraction as it combined beauty and amazing tastes. We end up the night with a plate filled with a variety of delicious chocolates. The service was formidable for the whole time. Comfortable seats and a very convenient location since we stayed at Marina Bay.
  • I've been here several times for work. It's by far the best electronics show (CES) on the world and easy to meet over thousands of people. Always good for business! Great organization and even as regular visitor you won't believe your eyes !!! I recommend!
