• Casino resort convention center
• Diverse entertainment & dining
Great education sessions, group teambuilding, and entertainment galore, you can create all of these opportunities at many Midwest casino resorts, especially those with dedicated convention center spaces.
When it comes to events where you want to meet, stay, and play, casino resort conventions centers have it all. Recently, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel, in Prior Lake, MN, opened the Mystic Lake Center. “As the newest event space and second largest hotel in the Twin Cities, Mystic Lake Center offers state-of-the-art technology in a visually stunning space,” said Holland Tudor, Sales Manager of Mystic Lake Center.
The new space offers 70,000 sq. ft. of dedicated meeting space, including the largest ballroom onsite at more than 17,000 sq. ft.. Belterra Casino Resort, in Florence, IN, features over 55,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, while in Harris, MI, Island Resort & Casino houses 13,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, including an outdoor courtyard. Burlington, IA is home to the PZAZZ! Entertainment Complex, including the PZAZZ! Resort Hotel and the PZAZZ! Convention & Event Center, with 9,060 sq. ft. of event space. And the list goes on and on for Midwest venues, so, what do they have beyond the square footage?
“As a new event space, Mystic Lake Center leads the way in advanced technology with enhanced audio and visual setups, built-in lighting, HD video screens and experienced onsite AV teams. On-property branding packages are available to make events really stand out,” said Tudor. “We have an onsite sign shop that provides unparalleled customization options, overseeing expert printing and installation down to the last detail. Meeting and event professionals work collaboratively with our in-house marketing team to ensure every aspect of each event leaves a lasting impression.”
We all know how important food is to every event, casinos provide multiple options to meet every taste; buffets, sports bars, steakhouses, and high-end cuisine. From Mystic Lake Casino’s Fusion Noodle Bar® to Island Resort’s Firekeeper’s Restaurant and PZAZZ’s Gasoline Allie’s to Belterra’s Nosh, your participants need only to ask themselves what they are in the mood for when dining outside the event agenda.
Catering your event is an exciting piece to plan with so many options available at casino conference centers. With a team of culinary professionals and extensive kitchen space, Mystic Lake Center can serve up to 2,700 guests simultaneously, not to mention the exciting and eye-catching action stations they can create. “One of the most popular catering options is the iced seafood bar featuring chilled shrimp, deluxe cracked stone crab claws, snow crab claws, chilled lobster medallions, and freshly shucked oysters,” expressed Tudor. “The charcuterie board with a chef’s selection of sausage and cheese, whole grain mustard, purple mustard, bacon jam, fig jam, smoked almonds, and crostini has also been a big hit.”
When planning your next event, consider the ease, entertainment, and exciting cuisine a casino resort conference center can bring to your participants. So many options, one great location.
