The $59 million Hospitality Hall Project that was funded by among other key players in the gaming industry, the Las Vegas Casinos, is nearing its completion.
Upon successful construction, the hospitality facility will be open to the public next fall.
The 93, 500 square foot hall will be a learning center as well as have the ability to host hundreds of employees.
The Hospitality Hall, as it is rightly called, would not have reached this far were it not for generous contributions from several gaming facilities in Las Vegas Strip who understand the importance of the facility to future casino staff as well as the community at large.
Hospitality Hall has been scheduled to train employees and staff of various hospitality centers such as nightclubs, bars, restaurants, casinos and racinos, helping them make real money online casino gambling sites.
Those who put their money into the projects either gave it as a donation or gave it in order to benefit from the training that would be given to their staff once UNLV is open.
It is on record that the Nevada administration gave William Harrah College a whopping $24.4 million two years ago to commence and complete the project, but with only a half of the money at hand, the college could not be completed.
It is at this point that a section of gaming operators sat down to deliberate on how they could help the facility to kick start.
Gaming operators, stakeholders and interested gaming investors decided to fund the project. Today, the college is not far from completion.
All the mentioned gaming companies donated $2.5 million. Additionally, the family of J. William and Alice Marriot, through their various Foundations gave the same amount of $2.5 million to the college.
UNLV, which is just a few yard from the Las Vegas Strip will host at least 2, 500 students who will learn how to handle clients thus provide first-hand customer service to visitors who check in to hospitality facilities in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Sands alone contributed $7 million for the project.
Speaking on the amount of money and the reason for their donation, LVS COO said that they will not sit on the fence when a good project is going on their neighborhood.
“We’re committed in the creation of tangible and positive benefits especially in those areas we love most and care about. That is our team, the staff, the industry and the community in general,” said Michael Leven.
