Las Vegas Convention Center

Date: 18/06/2024


Located in the vibrant heart of Las Vegas, Nevada, the Las Vegas Convention Center is a global icon known for its grandeur and versatility. With an impressive 2,500,000 square feet (230,000 square meters) of exhibit space and the capacity to accommodate over 200,000 participants, it stands as one of the largest Convention Centers in the world. In 2024, it is scheduled to host over 60 events, attracting a massive 1.4 million attendees.  

An essential aspect of managing such a vast space is the ability to host multiple events simultaneously and have a quick turnaround time between them without compromising the space’s style and design. Using Skyfold’s walls, you can swiftly reconfigure space at the push of a button, maximizing revenue without the need for a team to reconfigure the space, which is common with traditional operable walls.  

Finished in Una-Clad Sierra Tan paint, The Las Vegas Convention Center uses 13 Skyfold Classic 51 Vertically Folding Operable Walls to cleverly divide space. These walls, measuring 27 feet long and 15 feet high (8.23m and 4.57m), are operated by a key switch, allowing for easy deployment or retraction without labor. They are on three floors and opposite sides of the building, allowing an unobstructed view of the exhibition space when retracted into the ceiling. When the walls are retracted to an up position, natural light enters the space, reducing energy consumption and contributing to the venue’s sustainability goals.  

When deployed, Skyfold walls provide a two-sided, rigid surface and an acoustic barrier with acoustic ratings of up to STC 60 (RW 59) for sound isolation and an NRC/SAC of up to 0.65 for noise reduction. The Skyfold NRC models are designed not only to stop sound but also to absorb it. Top architectural firms around the world specifically approve Skyfold walls for use in convention centers where sound control is critical. Investing in a high-quality operable wall system like Skyfold ensures maximum acoustic performance.  

With Skyfold, the Las Vegas Convention Center can promptly reconfigure space for its clients and create an unforgettable experience for its many patrons.
