For an underground tunnel about 1.3km long, $50m may seem like a huge sum, but the LVCC is huge and is likely to attract more people as the Las Vegas Convention and Tourism Authority prepares to open another huge showroom.

CeS is reported to have attracted more than 175,000 people in 2019 alone, while the SEMA show attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors.
