Mandalay Bay announced plans today to build a 1.8 million-square-foot convention center that will be added to the rear of the 3,000-room Strip resort.

The facility, whose pricetag was not revealed, will be larger than the 1.2 million-square-foot Sands Expo Center and would rank just behind the county-owned Las Vegas Convention Center.

Construction is expected to begin in June, with completion slated for summer 2002.

Currently, Mandalay has less than 200,000 square feet of meeting space.
