Asia Comes to Vegas

Asia Comes to Vegas

As COVID-19 brings the Las Vegas Strip to a standstill, Genting Group may get its timing just right as it nears completion of the US$4.3 billion Resorts World Las Vegas.

Thirteen years after the legendary Stardust Hotel was imploded to make way and eight years after Genting Group acquired the site, Resorts World Las Vegas may have gotten its timing just right. The US$4.3 billion integrated resort at the north end of the Strip figures to take a starring role in Sin City's post-coronavirus grand re-opening as the leading new attraction of the 2021 US summer vacation season, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Genting opening its flagship mountaintop property outside Kuala Lumpur.
