The $1.4 billion MGM National Harbor luxury gaming resort in Oxon Hill, Maryland, is slated to open in December. Located on the banks of the Potomac River, the 308-room hotel and 125,000-square-foot casino will offer 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The 16,200-square-foot MGM Grand Ballroom has floor-to-ceiling windows and a 6,000-square-foot terrace. Other event spaces include the 4,284-square-foot Bellagio Ballroom; the ARIA, Mandalay Bay, and Beau Rivage rooms, which are 1,838 square feet each; and two Mirage Boardrooms. Outdoor events can be hosted at the pool deck as well as the Potomac Plaza, which can host groups of as many as 500 people. Live Nation will promote shows at MGM National Harbor's 3,000-seat theater, which has V.I.P. suites and scalable designs for chairs and tables. The multi-use theater can accommodate groups as large as 4,000 people. Technology throughout the meeting spaces includes a video wall, fiber-optic ports in each room, and a 64x64 matrix router that will provide intra-room connectivity to share audio, video, and data throughout any room in the conference center. Boardrooms are equipped with built-in 90-inch screens with video and teleconferencing capability. MGM National Harbor will have several dining options, including restaurants from chefs José Andrés, Marcus Samuelsson, and Bryan and Michael Voltaggio. There will also be two cocktail lounges, an infinity pool, and a destination spa.
