Tropicana Las Vegas Announces Meeting Space Expansion

Tropicana Las Vegas, which became a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in 2012, has commenced an expansion of its conference center, it announced yesterday. Scheduled for completion by March 1, 2015, the expansion will increase the resort's total meeting space from more than 72,000 square feet currently to 100,000 square feet.

The heart of the project is an expansion of Tropicana's pillarless ballroom, Tropicana Pavilion, which will receive a 26,000-square-foot addition, bringing its total size to 55,000 square feet that will be divisible into up to 11 separate breakout rooms.

"We're thrilled to offer our business customers additional space to accommodate their increasing group sizes," Gavin Mealiffe, vice president of sales for Tropicana Las Vegas, said in a statement. "The fact that the space is all new and can entirely self-contain groups will be an appealing feature for organizers of larger corporate meetings and events. It is also very convenient to the hotel's Club Tower, allowing for easy access for group attendees."
