The Expo in Vegas ‘on schedule, on budget’
LAS VEGAS — International Market Centers says that construction of The Expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, the new 315,000-square-foot exhibition facility in downtown Las Vegas, has gone vertical.
The $90 million project is scheduled to open in July 2020 for the summer Las Vegas Market.
“Construction is on schedule and on budget,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of IMC.
The contractor broke ground in July 2019, and seven of the 10 steel sequences have been completed, with the largest 180-foot truss piece in place. A real-time, live feed of the construction site is available online.
The external steel work is to be complete by January, and Maricich projects it will be “business as usual for marketgoers attending the winter event.
During the winter Las Vegas Market, IMC will erect three temporary tents to house scan-and-go badge pickup for pre-registered attendees, onsite registration, and coat and bag check. In addition, there will be a new taxi stand location and a new City of Las Vegas parking garage directly across the street from World Market Center.
