Virgo Publishing LLC, a business-to-business information services company, announced Thursday that Spring 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo will be held March 13-15, 2011, at the new ARIA Resort & Casino located at CityCenter in Las Vegas.
CityCenter, dubbed a “city within a city,” is the newest Vegas mega resort, the largest construction project in U.S. history with 18 million square feet of space, and the world’s largest green building development. ARIA, which opened Dec. 16, 2009, is the resort, casino and exhibit facility located in the heart of this complex.
“CityCenter and ARIA are the embodiment of big, bold and smart thinking,” said Mike Saxby, Publisher, Telecom Division, Virgo Publishing. “We are excited to bring our event and the channel community to this innovative, tech-friendly location. Beneath the Vegas glitz, this property offers an unparalleled always-on connected experience, which gives our tech-savvy attendees and exhibitors the ability do business and share information and conduct demos from their Wi-Fi-enabled laptops, smartphones and netbooks anywhere in the resort, including the expo hall.”
CityCenter has the largest Distributed Antenna System in the world, covering more than 14 million square feet. More than 6,500 antennas coupled with more than 2,900 wireless access points enable Wi-Fi not only in every room but also anywhere throughout the campus. Plus, all guestrooms are networked with fiber offering 1gbps of bandwidth.
Celebrating its 14th year, the spring 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo is expected to attract more than 3,000 channel partners and their suppliers.
