City Center, Las Vegas!

This week Tim traveled back to visit the always changing and never dull city of Las Vegas, Nevada. Tim was in Vegas to attend the largest annual design conference held for the Hospitality Design market called, HD EXPO 2010 (Hospitality Design, Expo). This three day event is the benchmark for all industry professionals involved in design, products and technology for the Hospitaltiy sector, whether for a Hotel, Restaurant, Clubhouse or other public or private resort type facilities. Tim spent two days on the floor meeting with manufacturers, fellow designers, industry leaders and of course finding the newest, coolest and best products available to bring to our Clients.

Over the next month Tim will provide a weekly showcase of his best finds of the show. Lookout for a Blog Post called;
HD EXPO finds...

While on this trip, Tim took sometime to explore, study and photograph some of this fantasy city. The newest digs to hit the Vegas strip is the monumental City Center project. CityCenter is a 16,797,000 square feet mixed-use, massive urban complex on 76 acres located on the Las Vegas Strip. The project was started by MGM Mirage; Dubai World became a joint partner during the project's construction phase. It is the largest privately funded construction project in the history of the United States! Wow, truly a magnificent undertaking by a cast of thousands.
