New City, New Venue, New Future

MWC Las Vegas will take place in the West Hall. The West Hall opened in 2021 and features 600,000 square feet of exhibition space. Over half the exhibition space is column-free, and at 328,000 square feet, it is the largest such space in North America. The West Hall’s light-filled entrance lobby and atrium feature a 10,000-square-foot digital screen developed by Samsung.

For the futuristic transport aficionados among us, the West Hall is served and connected by the innovative underground transportation system, the LVCC Loop. Designed by Elon Musk’s The Boring Company the system transports convention attendees throughout the 200-acre campus in under two minutes in Tesla vehicles, free of charge. The Las Vegas Monorail is an elevated, all-electric train system that provides direct access to the world-class resorts of Las Vegas and the LVCC.

Creating a holistic event experience and with a fresh mood, we have made the newly opened Resorts World our MWC Las Vegas headquarters hotel. It’s a short walk from the West Hall and will be a quick ride in the LVCC Loop.

MWC Las Vegas is part of the GSMA’s annual series of MWC events including MWC Africa and MWC Barcelona. More information on MWC Las Vegas 2022, including how to attend, exhibit or sponsor, is available at www.mwclasvegas.com.
