The 2012 IMA Conference & Awards will be held at the spectacular Aria Resort in the CityCenter complex, with a Welcome Reception at the beautiful Bellagio hotel.
Designed by the world-renowned firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, natural beauty and innovative design reveals itself throughout Aria’s exterior from elegantly sweeping ripples
of steel and glass to lavish natural elements indoors including lush foliage, wood and stone. It offers 4,004 guestrooms (including 568 suites), more than 150,000 square feet of gaming featuring 145 table games and 1,940slot machines and 300,000 square feet of meeting and convention space.
Opened in December, 2009, Aria solidified CityCenter’s commitment to sustainability as one of the first Las Vegas hotels to achieve LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council and is currently is the largest building in the world with LEED Gold status . In addition, Aria and Vdara Hotel & Spa become the first Las Vegas hotels to achieve a 5 Keys designation by the Green Key Eco-Rating Program, the foremost “green” ranking, certification and audit program in North America evaluating sustainable hotel operations. The 5 Keys designation is a certification level achieved by only approximately one percent of all hotels rated by Green Key.
