LAS VEGAS (December 19, 2018)– The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Board has named Atlanta-based architecture firm, tvsdesign, designer on the $540 million Phase Three renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center’s (LVCC) entire 3.2 million-square-feet existing campus.

“Providing a world-class experience across the entire LVCC property is critical to us, and being trusted to lead the charge on the Phase Three renovation will ensure that,” says tvsdesign Principal, Rob Svedberg. “Guests expect nothing short of spectacular when they visit Las Vegas, and we’re honored for the continued opportunity to help solidify its place as the number one trade show destination in the country.”
The phased approach guarantees no business displacement during construction and renovation, and that people attending LVCC events will have a consistent experience between the old and new buildings.
“tvsdesign has obviously been integral to the design of the Las Vegas Convention Center District’s Phase Two expansion, and we’re incredibly pleased that they’ll remain part of the Phase Three renovation process in the role of Design Consultant,” said Terry Jicinsky, senior vice president of operations – construction. “The design they’ve created will be as iconic and vibrant as the city itself, and continuing that vision across the existing building illustrates our commitment to delivering a facility fit for one of the world’s premier business destinations.”
Phase Three’s projected completion date is 2023, while Phase Two is on track for completion in time for CES 2021. Combined, both phases of the project will generate an additional $2.1 billion in economic activity during construction.
