Cox Business’ Hospitality Network announced it is powering the connected guest experience at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s (LVCC) West Hall expansion – just in-time for the return to in-person events.

To kick off its summer season, the LVCC and new 1.4 million square foot, $1 billion West Hall will host World of Concrete (June 8-10), the first major convention to return to Las Vegas and the U.S. post-pandemic. Cox will play a major role by keeping attendees connected through a fast, dense and high-performing WiFi network that covers the entire 1.4 million sq. ft. facility, from the exhibition to meeting rooms to parking lots. 

“We are pleased to continue our valued partnership with Cox, which has spanned more than seven years,” said Brian Yost, chief operating officer at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “We are pleased to offer our convention customers the dependable connectivity and cutting-edge technology Cox Business delivers throughout our new West Hall.”

Already the LVCC’s exclusive connectivity provider, Hospitality Network has deployed its WiFi 6 and Cox Business Redundant Fiber technologies to the expansion with 700 access points in the West Hall alone. Each access point is designed to handle an increased number of devices, giving the convention center the ability to connect larger crowds of people throughout all its events.

“It’s exciting to see our relationship with the LVCVA grow as their facilities continue to expand,” said Jady West, Vice President of Hospitality, Cox Business. “With the world returning to travel and large-scale events, Cox is committed to equipping them with innovative technologies that will set their guest experience apart.”
