LAS VEGAS (AP) — Casino giant MGM Resorts International said it's teaming with a firm that provided COVID-19 screenings for the National Hockey League playoffs and a health care provider for high-volume events in an optional conference attendee safety plan at its U.S. hotels and casinos.
Company CEO Bill Hornbuckle on Tuesday called the system dubbed "Convene with Confidence" a step toward booking conventions and meetings again.
Almost all 29 MGM Resorts properties around the country have idle conference space and empty convention schedules due to crowd size limits.
Event scheduling will depend on local regulations and mandates. Nevada currently limits gatherings to 50 people.
