Las Vegas Convention Center Home To New American Express OPEN Lounge

 American Express OPEN and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority have unveiled a premium, state of the art OPEN Business Lounge inside the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The 3,400-square-foot lounge is prominently located at the Convention Center's main entrance and features an open and airy floor plan. The OPEN Business Lounge is created for American Express OPEN Cardmembers and new applicants as a place to learn, recharge and connect. The OPEN Business Lounge allows guests an opportunity to take a break from their busy schedules, offering refreshments, free WiFi, computer and printer access, and seating for meetings or relaxation.

"We are committed to identifying new ways to stay competitive and maintain Las Vegas' status as the No.1 tradeshow destination in North America," said Terry Jicinsky, senior vice president of operations for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. "We're excited to work with American Express to offer our convention and tradeshow delegates another amenity that helps them improve their business and tradeshow experience."

The American Express OPEN Business Lounge at the LVCC also supports local small businesses. Janitorial and floral services are provided by A1 Janitorial and Gaia Flowers, Gifts, Art. Local artwork from the Brett Wesley Gallery is also featured in the lounge.

"There simply is nowhere else like Las Vegas -- which makes it the perfect showcase for the OPEN Business Lounge," said Audrey Hendley, Senior Vice President and General Manager OPEN Acquisition. "With the incredible volume of visitors Las Vegas hosts, we know the OPEN Business Lounge will help us reach our current Cardmembers and countless prospective new members to provide them with the resources they need when they need it."

The American Express OPEN Business Lounge at the Las Vegas Convention Center is the first location in the Western United States and is open in conjunction with business to business events taking place in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
