When the Chinese-themed Resorts World Las Vegas (RWLV) debuts in 2018, it will be the first Las Vegas Strip development in more than a decade. As Chinese outbound tourism continues to grow—topping 100 million for the first time in 2014—the resort’s theme will resonate with both domestic and international tourists.
The Genting Group will operate the $4 billion casino resort, which will feature three hotels, more than 100,000 sf of gaming space, retail offerings and a nightlife venue. Like all Vegas developments, it will also feature a wide variety of entertainment themes, F&B outlets and cultural attractions—all themed around China’s many diverse regions and ethnic groups.
“After 50 years of developing integrated resorts all around the globe, we are thrilled to be breaking ground on the Las Vegas Strip in the great state of Nevada,” says KT Lim, Chairman and CEO of the Genting Group. “Las Vegas is known for its world-renowned resorts, and the Genting Group looks forward to being a part of the city’s continued growth by creating a huge national and international draw with this Chinese-themed, world-class resort.”
Construction on the 87-acre resort broke ground in May 2015 and is still on track for a mid-2018 opening. While an announcement about the property’s meeting space offerings has yet to be made, additional details for the RWLV will be released throughout the construction process.
