The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) completed it expansion last year and added the "North Hall". Here is a picture of the convention center facing East, slightly west of Paradise Boulevard. The new North Hall is on your left and the original Convention Center is straight forward.
One of the massive "tents" outside the Las Vegas Convention Center which handles registration and media facilities. This is the Media Center. Each of these structures have steel framing, along with their own power and air conditioning. During the year, this area is the paved parking lot for the Convention Center.
