The meetings program also gives planners a single main point of contact, regardless of the group’s size.
Planet Hollywood’s Conference Center is located on the property’s mezzanine level, with easy access to the hotel lobby, guest elevators, a 1,500-seat showroom, and casino. The facility’s 100,000 square feet of meeting space features the 36,864-square-foot Celebrity Ballroom, divisible into eight breakouts; 20 meeting rooms that can accommodate 10 to 500 people; two executive-style boardrooms for 10 to 12 people; a permanent registration desk with two lockable offices; a business center; a dedicated banquet kitchen; and in-house presentation services.
Additionally, the Theater for the Performing Arts offers flexible capacities ranging from 3,000 to 7,000 seats. Both the showroom and theater include permanent staging, dressing/green rooms, lighting packages, and advanced sound systems.
