Experience the newest Las Vegas additions at The ARA Show

The entertainment capital continues to evolve

Las Vegas offers some of the brightest lights and newest additions in the entertainment world, and those attending The ARA Show™ 2021 will have a front-row seat to some of the newest highlights Las Vegas has to offer.

The ARA Show will begin with a day of education at Resorts World Las Vegas on Oct. 17. The trade show will follow at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) from Oct. 18-20. Both of these venues are part of the newest updates in Las Vegas that also features new entertainment areas, restaurants and bars, gaming and much more.

Las Vegas Convention Center expansion — The LVCC’s $989 million-dollar expansion officially opens in June and features the new Convention Center Loop — an underground tunnel system that shuttles pedestrians between convention facilities in all-electric Tesla vehicles.

Resorts World Las Vegas — This brand-new state-of-the-art facility is opening on June 24 and is the headquarters hotel for The ARA Show 2021. Resorts World will host several events throughout the show including the education sessions on Sunday. This hotel also is the first new casino resort on the Las Vegas Strip in 11 years and will feature progressive technology, globally inspired cuisine, exclusive retail boutiques, gaming and world-renowned entertainment. The underground Tesla system also connects Resorts World with the LVCC.

AREA15 — This new arts and entertainment district offers everything from live events to a large-scale art installation, as well as eateries, shopping and bars.

New restaurants — The food scene in Las Vegas is vibrant and growing, with new options like Al Solito Posto (Italian cuisine), Din Tai Fung (a dumpling and noodle house), Delilah (an Art Deco-themed supper club), Vegas Test Kitchen (a pop-up restaurant incubator) and Milpa (healthy Mexican food).

Dig This Las Vegas — Equipment rental operators are around excavators, bulldozers, skid steers and more every day, but at Dig This Las Vegas, you’ll be able to use these for fun and dig all around an “adult sandbox.” Digs are available for individuals, groups and kids. There also are team challenges available here a group of team members work together to accomplish tasks through teamwork and  communication.

The Tipsy Robot — A unique combination of entertainment and technology, this new bar has two robots that make up to 120 drinks per hour. Using a simple app, users will create their drinks that are then assembled by two robotic arms. Their movements simulate the actions of a bartender, which includes the shaking of a martini to the thin slicing of a lemon garnish to the muddling of a mojito.
