Circa Resort & Casino's new 35,000-square foot meeting and convention space opened Tuesday, August 30 and is now available for booking. The facility marks the second phase of development for the downtown Las Vegas resort, "providing meeting planners contemporary, tech-forward options to book events, galas, meetings and more, off the Strip," according to Circa.

Circa's meeting spaces "offer groups top-tier, turnkey audio and visual capabilities and customizable rooms for up to 1,000 guests," the company stated in a press release. Featuring a ballroom, breakout and banquet rooms, adjacent pre-function space and a 1,600-square-foot outdoor terrace, the spaces are outfitted to complement Circa's mid-century, art deco and modern design motifs.

Derek Stevens, CEO of Circa, said: "As the meetings and events industries continue to ramp up after the pandemic, we are thrilled to introduce our incredible facilities to downtown Las Vegas. It has always been our intention to add this to Circa's repertoire, and we look forward to kicking off our first series of events in September."

Equipped with "best-in-class technology, Circa makes it easy for on-the-spot event functionality," the casino claims. Environmental measures have been implemented including LED lighting and adaptive, intelligent controlled HVAC systems that adjust temperatures to changing ecosystems.

Additional technological offerings include 16K LU laser projectors, retractable screens, audio tie lines, patchable ethernet lines, strands of patchable single mode fiber in pairs on LC connectors, quad outlets and LED screens. The facility also features a large freight elevator to transport large vehicles and displays directly to the third floor for ease of access. Additionally, a full kitchen is dedicated to Circa's convention area.

Sasha Lee, Circa's Director of Sales, said: "When creating these spaces, we kept meeting planners in mind with details such as flexible room sizes, in-house IT to maintain lower costs and a large elevator for easy load out. We are so pleased with how the area turned out and proud to introduce Las Vegas' newest convention area."

Circa's meetings and conventions facility was designed by JCJ Architecture with the original design concept from Steelman Partners. 

Circa's event offerings "were planned with adaptability and customization in mind, accommodating multiple configurations and combination seating to support meeting planners' needs," the company stated.

Continuing the property's tradition of honoring Las Vegas' history, each of the five main meeting spaces are named after iconic Las Vegas motels from past eras: 

  • Galaxy: The largest of Circa's meeting rooms, it shares its name with the short-lived Galaxy Motel. Four adjoining meeting rooms boast 14,456 square feet and a 1,677-square-foot outdoor terrace overlooking the city. It was designed to be able to host a multitude of events with a large LED screen, built-in audio-visual capabilities, full rigging and a partition wall that opens the ballroom to the pre-function spaces. 
  • Starlite: Opened in the 1950s and still operating today, Starlite became popular due to its star-themed rooms during the height of the Space Age. Starlite spans 3,572 square feet across three rooms and includes built-in audio-visual, full rigging and access to pre-function spaces. 

  • Carousel: Circa sits on the site formerly home to the Carousel, a casino where guests could dine on an assortment of delicacies for 96 cents. Carousel offers 1,651 square feet across three rooms and boasts built-in audio-visual and access to pre-function spaces. 
  • Ambassador: Beginning as apartments in the 1930s and remaining open as a motel through 2007, the Ambassador vintage sign can still be seen at downtown Las Vegas' Life is Beautiful festival. Circa's two Ambassador meeting areas can be booked together for a total of 1,055 square feet with built-in audio-visual and access to pre-function spaces. 
  • La Concha: Described as "The Jetsons meets coffee shop," La Concha Motel was built on a shoestring budget and remained open for 45 years. Circa's La Concha room features 920 square feet and has built-in audio-visual capabilities and access to pre-function spaces. 
  • Bonanza Office: The Bonanza Office is named after the iconic Bonanza Casino, which is now Bally's on the Strip. The hard-walled office features 192 square feet of private space. 

Circa Resort & Casino also is home to a variety of other meeting options across the property, including suites, the resort's 60th-floor cocktail lounge, restaurants and entertainment areas.
