In 2002, the developers announced that the project was to be built on a lot adjacent to the City of Las Vegas'[citation needed] 61-acre (25 ha) redevelopment parcel, as an eight building, 7.5 million sq ft (700,000 m2) facility designed by Jon Jerde of Jerde Partnership in association with Edward Vance of JMA Architecture Studios.[4][5] The square footage of the main building alone is greater than that of the Empire State Building in New York City.[citation needed]In 2005, WMCLV announced plans for completion of an expansion increasing the space to a total of 12 million sq ft (1.1 million m2) complete with skywalks between all buildings on all levels.

Building A opened in May 2005 with 1.3 million sq ft (120,000 m2).

The first show, July 21–25, 2005, was so overbooked that it used space in three Pavilions (huge tentstructures) and the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Construction started on the 16 story, 1.6 million sq ft (150,000 m2) Building B in 2005. It opened in January 2007.

Construction on the 16 story, 2.1 million sq ft (200,000 m2) Building C started on September 27, 2006 and completed July 2008. The first 2 floors are part of the Las Vegas Design Center.

At a construction cost of $550 million, Building C stands with 130,000 sq ft (12,000 m2) on each floor, which is nearly 30 percent larger than those in Buildings A and B. In all, more than 400 showrooms comprise Building C. In conjunction with the opening of Building C, a $60-million, seven-story parking garage with 175,000 sq ft (16,300 m2) on each level also opened in July 2008.

In 2008, World Market Center put plans on hold to finish its complex of buildings, originally slated to be about 12 million square feet and set for completion by 2013. [6]

World Market Center is owned by International Market Centers, L.P. (IMC). On May 3, 2011, Bain Capital, Oaktree Capital Management, The Related Companies, and other investors announced the formation of International Market Centers, a venture that combines properties in High Point and Las Vegas and would control 11.5 million square feet of showroom space. At that point, two of the World Market Center buildings and two of the High Point showroom complexes had been in receivership for several months.[7] In a deal completed September 26, 2017,[8] Blackstone Real Estate Partners, Blackstone Tactical Opportunities and Fireside Investments purchased IMC,[9] which at the time owned 5.4 million square feet in three Las Vegas locations.[8]

In August 2019, construction began on the Expo at World Market Center building. It is a 315,000 sq ft (29,300 m2) convention facility that will connect to Building C. The expo building will replace the Pavilion tent facilities located across the street. The tents will be removed upon completion of the expo building and the 21-acre land will initially be used for parking, with the potential for future development.[10] The expo building was topped off on December 19, 2019. It is scheduled to open on June 22, 2020.[11]

Player Updates

  • January 20, 2021

The JW Marriott has offered our players a special rate of $125 per night* for their standard deluxe rooms.

Call (702) 869-7777 to book your room directly with the hotel and mention the Las Vegas World Amateur to get the special rate.

*Local taxes and resort fees apply

The honey pots are a way to play for an additional prize during the event. These are totally optional and you are not under any obligation to participate. You are a member of the tournament and will play for all the tournament prizes just as though the Honey Pots didn’t exist.

But we know people like to play for a little more - so we have created this opportunity.

Each player will put $75 into the pot before the first round begins. This is basically $25 per day. From this, we will award prize money to the top 25% of each flight and division each day. These are not cumulative - these are based on a single day’s play. The person who wins the cumulative will already get a great prize - this allows those who may not make the final, or win a prize during the week - to take home a little something from Las Vegas.

(NOTE: YOU MUST ENTER PRIOR TO THE FIRST HOLE ON MONDAY OR YOU CAN’T ENTER THE HONEY POT).

Event payouts will depend on the number of participants in each division/flight. We are committed to paying more than 30 percent of this year's field.

Use the link below to see potential payouts based on division/flight size.
