The Linq Promenade, New Caesars Forum To Host Las Vegas NFL Draft
The NFL on Nov. 26 plans to "announce that The Linq Promenade and the new Caesars Forum conference center will host" the '20 NFL Draft, according to sources cited by Richard Velotta of the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL. Key to the NFL's "most popular off-season event" will be the Forum, a 550,000-square-foot event facility being built just east of The Linq Promenade. Caesars has said that the new venue "could accommodate 10,000 people at a time" and that it will have "two 110,000-square-foot pillarless ballrooms, plus two other ballrooms with plenty of divisible space for teams and ready rooms." The Forum also will have an "indoor-outdoor component that opens out to The Linq Promenade that could play into whatever plan the NFL has to showcase the event." Other Las Vegas locations "could be in the mix for later rounds of the Draft" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 11/16).
