Cox Business has announced that it will expand connectivity for the forthcoming convention center expansion at Wynn Las Vegas, which is slated to open in February 2020.
The expansion more than doubles the rentable meeting and convention space at Wynn and Encore by adding 300,000 new rentable square feet, raising the total to 560,000 rentable square feet across 57 flexible meeting rooms, a 20,000-square-foot outdoor pavilion with a 20,000-square-foot adjacent lawn, and four pillar-less ballrooms.
Cox Business currently services Wynn and Encore and will nearly double the Cisco access points and Cisco Wireless Switches on the property in order to maintain connectivity in the convention center.
The two-level expansion offers sweeping views of the resort’s new 18-hole championship golf course. Like the existing event space, the expansion is powered by 100 percent renewable energy sourced and delivered directly from the 160-acre Wynn Solar Facility and on-site rooftop solar panels.
Since the resort’s debut in April 2005, Cox Business and its affiliate, Hospitality Network, have powered the Wynn and Encore meeting and convention space by providing managed Wi-Fi services with dedicated high-speed Internet and wireless capabilities.
“It’s imperative that guests to our convention space have a dedicated and dependable online experience, from presentations to personal device connectivity,” said Chris Flatt, EVP of hotel sales at Wynn Las Vegas.
