May 10, 2005 4:26 AM

The newly-opened Wynn Las Vegas resort will host — and be the subject of — next month’s Casino Design 2005, the premier casino design and construction conference.

Scheduled for June 22-24, the design conference will give attendees an unprecedented insider’s look at the new property through exclusive interior and exterior property tours.

The close-up look will supplement three days of discussion related to innovative hotel design and the amenities that will shape hotel casinos of the future.

Among the key conference topics are the changing face of the Las Vegas Strip, growth in non-gaming amenities, and the integration of condo and timeshare projects into casino developments.

"Gaming properties in the U.S. and around the world are undergoing a face-lift, and developers are continually changing their properties in order to maximize business potential," said Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. "The role of design has become a critical element in meeting the needs of increasingly sophisticated customers, and Wynn Las Vegas is the perfect example of the evolution of the design ideal. Hosting Casino Design at this new property will allow our attendees to see first-hand where true innovation in design can take us."

A member of Global Gaming Expo’s (G2E) portfolio of events, Casino Design brings together commercial and Native American gaming executives, interior and exterior designers, architects, builders, developers and others involved in the planning and development of casinos.

Casino Design 2005 will also feature a comprehensive exhibition of products and services related to the building, design and construction of casinos worldwide.
