Last week the state Gaming Control Board unanimously recommended Wynn Las Vegas President Marilyn Spiegel for licensing as a key employee of the Strip property. Spiegel is returning to Wynn Resorts after several changes to its senior executive team have been made. “Wynn Las Vegas and Encore are recognised globally for creating outstanding guest experiences,” said Spiegel.
“Without question, that success is driven by the employees. The Wynn team is the most talented in our industry – I eagerly look forward to working with them again.”
Luxury resort and casino, Wynn Las Vegas, located on The Strip in Paradise recently announced its early completion of the 430,000 square foot expansion of Wynn and Encore, set to open in February. Chris Flatt, executive vice president of hotel sales explained that “the expansion seamlessly complements the existing space at Wynn and Encore, giving clients options to create memorable events.”
Flatt also said,
“the architecture, design and spectacular views create an event experience unlike anything else in Las Vegas.” The Control Board’s licensing recommendation is expected to be considered for final approval on Sept. 26.
More on the new convention centre
Spiegel stood in front of the Control Board in Nevada explaining the project’s latest developments. The new space will put Wynn Las Vegas at around 560,000 square feet in size, in which 20,000 square foot is dedicated to an outdoor pavilion and four large ballrooms. Interestingly the new convention centre will be powered by Wynn’s groundbreaking solar facility which produces 45 million kilowatt-hours of renewable energy every year.
Wynn resorts dedicated to green energy
The casino resort has been accepted in the U.S Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership back n 2018. They were recognised for their innovation in generating renewable energy to power its Las Vegas casino. The casino facility is considered the most sophisticated of its kind in the work and costs around $40 million to build. Wynn Las Vegas is currently covering 25% of the entire electric load.
Erik Hansen, chief sustainability officer at Wynn, mentions, “We are proud to be the national leader in green energy use in the hotel industry, proving that integrating large-scale energy efficient measures can be done in a way that only enhances the guest experience.” The new convention centre opening this February, a month ahead of schedule, will offer views of the Wynn Golf Club, the 18-hole championship golf course, sitting currently on the site of the former Desert Inn Golf Club.
On the gaming side, Spiegel mentions that
“We’re constantly editing the slot floor because of the interesting customer changes,” Spiegel said. “I like the idea of bringing in some stadium games because that’s new. The mobile app has not been particularly successful. I doubt that we’ll be at the forefront of mobile gaming.”
