With a full staff of artisans, designers, planners, entertainers and logistics personnel, we assemble many elements for amazing events. Much like 19 th century Impressionist painters who applied color to canvas with small, seemingly unrelated dashes of paint, we bring it all together in a way that, once one sees the whole picture, reveals a complete masterwork.

Through our dual perspectives of efficiency and imagination, we create events of every size and scale. After all, it’s not a matter of doing it bigger. It’s a matter of doing it better.

MGM Resorts Events is extremely pleased to be the recipient of many international event design awards. Some of our proudest moments include garnering a multitude of exclusive Gala Awards from Special Events Magazine, Spotlight Awards from Event Solutions Magazine, as well as many of the coveted Westie Awards from International Special Events Society.
