MGM National Harbor Will Offer Elegant Meeting Spaces and Customized Experiences Within New Integrated Resort

MGM National Harbor

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD—When the doors of MGM National Harbor open later this year, the integrated resort will provide a premier destination for groups who expect the best in amenities and service. The $1.4 billion MGM Resorts International property will be like no other in the DMV (Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia) region and will be available to host small private gatherings, engaging meetings, wedding receptions and elegant galas.

With 50,000 square feet of versatile meeting space, the MGM National Harbor Conference Center has been thoughtfully planned with ballrooms, meeting rooms and boardrooms adjacent to open, airy foyers overlooking The Conservatory and tree-lined streets. All meeting spaces will incorporate sister properties’ names to highlight the resort’s connection to other top destinations: the 16,200-square-foot MGM Grand Ballroom with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and 6,000-square-foot terrace with spectacular views of the Potomac River; the 4,284-square-foot Bellagio Ballroom; three 1,838-square-foot meeting rooms—ARIA, Mandalay Bay and Beau Rivage; and two Mirage Boardrooms. Technology throughout the space will allow meeting planners to conduct business with ease. A video wall will welcome attendees or highlight a company’s latest product; a 64x64 matrix router will provide intra-room connectivity to share audio, video and data throughout any room in the conference center; boardrooms will feature built-in 90-inch screens with video/teleconferencing capability and every room will have fiber optic ports.

For uniquely tailored meeting locations, the 308-room resort and casino has been designed with stunning indoor and outdoor venues providing groups numerous options to customize their event.  The 3,000-seat Theater at MGM National Harbor will feature seven VIP suites and scalable chair and table designs to tailor set ups for high-impact banquets, speaking engagements, product launches and general sessions. Based on the configuration, the multi-use venue can accommodate groups from 500 to 4,000.

Overlooking the harbor with breathtaking views of the Potomac River and the nation’s capital, Potomac Plaza will incorporate a soothing fountain and reflecting pool surrounded by lush greenery. These elements will complement beautiful vistas, setting the stage for memorable outdoor events for groups of 50 to 500.  Other locations available for private events will include the pool deck as well as the Capital and Corner Suites.

The resort’s talented catering team will create food and beverage experiences to enhance any occasion. From popular regional cuisine featuring local-sourced foods to the finest international fare, guests are sure to enjoy the variety of culinary delights.

Beyond the meeting space, the resort will feature a powerhouse lineup of celebrated chefs including José Andrés, Marcus Samuelsson, and Bryan and Michael Voltaggio.  Each concept has been carefully crafted to pay homage to the culture and influence of the region’s prominent culinary landscape.

After a day of meetings, guests can unwind in luxury.  Spacious guest rooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows, will be stylish and refined with meticulous attention to detail throughout. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology will be standard throughout all rooms, enabling guests to conveniently stay connected.

“Our resort will offer groups flexible space as part of a stunning venue and overall experience,” said Sheila Hession, executive director of Sales for MGM National Harbor.  “A short distance from Washington, D.C. and just minutes from Alexandria, VA, MGM National Harbor will provide a resort destination unlike any other on the East Coast.”
