MGM Resorts putting Heineken Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix in pole position

October 19, 2023

The racing takes place on the weekend of November 16-18.

MGM Resorts International is getting ready for the upcoming Heineken Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix next month, by putting on events, activations, artist engagements and more, which will be present along the Las Vegas Strip throughout the racing week.

Across the resorts, the operator will have numerous experiences to choose from, including a Ferrari pop-up boutique, bars, an art display and even an Alfa Romeo experience, to name but a few. These will take place across properties at the MGM Grand, Park MGM, the Cosmopolitan, Aria Resort and Casino, as well as at the Bellagio.

Some well-known names in the food world, such as José Andrés, Wolfgang Puck, the Voltaggio Brothers, David Chang and Michael Mina, will also be present at the restaurants on the resort to provide food during the event.

MGM Resorts’ Vice President of Citywide Events, Andrew Lanzino, described what people can expect to see: "People have been to big races, people have enjoyed Las Vegas - but the way the two will come together in November will make for an unprecedented weekend."

"With so many MGM Resorts destinations within a short walk of the track, we have an unmatched opportunity to create a neighbourhood experience where there is something for everyone and the party never ends."

It was announced this week, that hotel rates on Las Vegas Strip had gone down by 62%, ahead of the Grand Prix.
