MGM Arena To Serve Coca-Cola, Feature Toshiba Products
LAS VEGAS (AP) — MGM Resorts International and entertainment company AEG say their 20,000-seat arena being built behind the New York-New York casino-hotel on the Las Vegas Strip will feature Coca-Cola beverages and Toshiba technology.
The companies announced the sponsorship deals with Toshiba and Coca-Cola on Tuesday.
MGM Resorts and AEG are still seeking a sponsor to put their company name on the $375 million arena expected to open in a year.
It could play host to a new NHL team if the hockey league decides to expand to Las Vegas. Even if it doesn't the arena is expected to fill calendars with events and concerts.
Toshiba also gets naming rights to a 2-acre plaza outside the entrance where an elevated outdoor stage is being built for additional concerts and events.
