Supplier News: New Venues in Taipei, Vegas

New venues in Las Vegas and Taipei, as well as a new healthy meetings product in San Jose, lead this week's supplier news. 

Park MGM, Cisco Partner on New Meeting Venue

The Park MGM and Cisco have opened a new, IACC-certified meeting space: the 7,000-square-foot Ideation Studio.

Working with Cisco Systems, Park MGM is the world's first hotel to offer groups Cisco Webex Boards and Cisco Webex Teams, providing teams a combined real and virtual meeting space for collaborating, video calling, whiteboarding and sharing notes, files and presentations.

The Ideation Studio's "smart" conference space can recognize each person's device as they enter their designated room, regardless of the type of device, make or model. No wires and no passcodes are required in this secure meeting space. The system also has the ability to capture the team's meeting notes and make them and all meeting materials easily accessible after the meeting ends. If someone needs to join remotely, the experience is just as simple.

Beyond the technology, elements within the Ideation Studio are based on behavioral science and how people interact with the environment. Chair and table height, lighting, flooring and room configurations were selected to enhance engagement and the flow of ideas. With four distinct layouts and 10 rooms for groups of six up to 24, the variety of options provide the right solution for that next strategic planning session.

The Ideation Studio opening marks the completion of The Meeting Center at Park MGM. Accessible from all guest rooms and the resort lobby, the 77,000-square-foot conference area has a ballroom, 29 meeting rooms, a 4,345-square-foot private outdoor terrace, and the Madison Meeting Center – also IACC certified and Las Vegas' first executive meeting center including a Daily Meeting Package (DMP). In addition to the meeting space, Park Theater, the centerpiece of Park MGM's entertainment experience, doubles as a signature event space able to accommodate up to 5,200 guests within 30,000 square feet.

With a combination of modern, non-traditional spaces and flexible design, Park MGM's new meeting offerings fill an unmet need in Las Vegas. For more information or to book the new space, email [email protected] or call 800.311.5999.
