Construction workers on behalf of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) commenced the extensive process of pouring 55,742 square metres of concrete flooring in the main exhibit hall, as a part of the new West Hall expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). The process will take between four and five months to complete and is a major step forward in the expansion construction, which is now 77 percent complete.

The Las Vegas Convention Center’s USD$980 million West Hall expansion will add nearly 140,000 square metres of space to the existing 297,290 square metre campus. In addition to the exhibit hall, the expansion will feature a striking outdoor plaza, grand atrium, and state-of-the-art design and technology. The expansion is slated for completion in December 2020.

Concrete pour and expansion by the numbers:

  • 34 million kilograms of concrete used to fill the exhibit hall floor – this will require approximately 1,800 trips by fully loaded concrete trucks
  • The exhibit hall floor is a 25cm reinforced concrete slab, capable of supporting the LVCVA’s largest trade show exhibits
  • The concrete pour will take four to five months to complete
  • The exhibit floor includes plumbing, electrical, and data infrastructure so exhibitors can connect without the use of on ground wiring
  • 2,173,337: Hours of work crews have logged since construction began in 2018
  • Nearly 140,000: Square metres of space the LVCC expansion will add to the existing 297,290 square metre campus
  • 333: Number of volleyball courts the 55,742 square metre expansion hall could accommodate
  • 30,472: Square metres of space in the new exhibit hall that will be column-free, the largest column-free space in North America
