Holding your own in Las Vegas among the bombastic, glitzy casino and entertainment buildings is a challenge. At the end of 2021 the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), designed by TSK Architects, opened near the legendary entertainment strip in the US desert city. The growth-oriented extension adds an impressive 130,000 m2 to the LVCC, one of the largest event and congress buildings in the world. Each year 6.5 million trade show visitors are drawn to Las Vegas, and the trend is rising. The lighting design by CM Kling + Associates from Washington played a central role in presenting and displaying the enormous extension building, both functionally and aesthetically. With ERCO, the lighting designers found an ideal partner to implement all aspects of the complex large-scale project.
