Mandalay Bay

Mand 1

With more than 2 million square feet of exhibiting space, Mandalay Bay Exposition Center is a massive exhibition center.

The Mandalay has three floors with various exhibiting spaces on each floor. Besides its size, the Mandalay offers unique features that separate it from other convention centers, including a beach (complete with sand), shark aquarium with walkthrough tube, and even an aquatic meeting space.

The location is next to McCarran International Airport, being the major transportation hub in and out of Vegas, and it is a 5-minute drive to the Vegas Strip. Shows at the Mandalay Bay include Oracle Communications Conference, Led Show, International Pool and Spa Expo, AIM Expo, Ten X Growth Conference, Solar Power International, and Western Veterinarian Conference. An added bonus is that the venue doubles as a hotel. However, if you are just attending the show these hotels are nearby: Delano, Excalibur, Tropicana, Desert Rose, Staybridge and many more.
