LAS VEGAS – ARIA Resort & Casino at CityCenter provides a premium meeting experience with a unique blend of stunning architecture, distinctive décor and 300,000 square feet of technologically advanced meeting and convention space, transforming the everyday meeting into an unforgettable one. Designed by internationally acclaimed architects Pelli Clarke Pelli, the spectacular 61-story, 4,004-room resort sets a new global standard in hospitality.
The north façade of the event space features a beautiful glass wall that overlooks ARIA’s pool deck providing a dramatic desert-landscaped backdrop. The sloped garden on the wall’s exterior continues indoors; the 20-foot-long green wall is the largest of its kind in Nevada, featuring more than 14,000 plants, adding to the natural splendor of the space.
A highly skilled team of convention services managers, catering managers, banquet staff and convention concierge ensure every program is executed flawlessly. All technical needs, from audio/visual to full-scale event production, are coordinated by ARIA’s in-house Convention Technical Services department. For the ultimate gathering, MGM Resorts International Events can transform the function space into a destination brought to life by meeting planners’ imaginations.

CityCenter is one of the largest sustainable developments in existence, bringing a new level of environmental consciousness to the world-famous Strip. The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded LEED® Gold certification to ARIA, Vdara Hotel & Spa, Crystals, Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas and Veer Towers, marking the highest LEED achievement by any hotel, retail district or residential development in Las Vegas.
Making a debut at ARIA is the world’s first fleet of stretch limos powered by clean-burning compressed natural gas (CNG) and innovative slot machine bases that serve as floor air-conditioning displacement ventilation units, efficiently cooling public spaces from the ground up rather than wasting energy cooling empty space from the ceiling down.
ARIA has been designed to achieve more than 30 percent improvement in energy efficiency and will save an estimated 31 million gallons of water each year. This equates to a 40 percent savings within the building and 60 percent in outdoor landscaping over existing building codes.
For meetings, conventions and events, ARIA has incorporated environmentally responsible practices and services. In addition, all convention sales kits are made from recycled paper materials with the exception of the outside wrap, and uniforms for meeting and convention staff are woven from recycled polyester. For recycling, ARIA utilizes two docks for collection and separation of glass, paper, cardboard, metals, plastic, food waste and grease.
