TUCSON, Ariz. (May 30, 2019) – There are now two more reasons to host your next event in the Sonoran Desert: Casino Del Sol has completed a 9,600-square-foot expansion to its existing Conference Center, and its sister property, Casino of the Sun, just opened a brand-new event center, the Sunset Room.
The all-new 11,000-square-foot Sunset Room is located adjacent to Casino of the Sun and can host up to approximately 750 guests. The Sunset Room is ideal for all types of social or business functions, including wedding receptions, corporate meetings, quinceañeras, graduation parties, and more. Guests booking at the Sunset Room will have the option to utilize Casino Del Sol’s award-winning catering service or hire their own outside caterer. The Sunset Room will also host live entertainment.
Already one of the largest in Southern Arizona, the Conference Center at Casino Del Sol boasts an additional 9,600 square feet with the extensive expansion now complete. A second ballroom and additional breakout rooms were added to complement the existing convention space. The design allows for flexibility for a variety of events with several different room configurations. The impressive facility can now accommodate more than 3,000 guests for corporate events, exhibits, weddings, and live entertainment such as boxing and comedy shows. The Conference Center at Casino Del Sol will continue to offer an extensive customizable catering menu.
“We expanded our conference and event center offerings to meet the needs of our guests and our community,” said Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol. “Our new and expanded event spaces will allow us to host even more events and accommodate almost any type or size of gathering or corporate function.”
The new Sunset Room at Casino of the Sun and expanded Conference Center at Casino Del Sol adds to the Pascua Yaqui Tribe’s already impressive meeting space offerings. Now with two ballrooms and plenty of pre-function space, Casino Del Sol boasts almost 110,000 square feet of flexible indoor/outdoor meeting space. This includes unique settings such as the Conference Center terrace, picturesque pool deck and gazebo, and event lawn. With state-of-the-art audiovisual and staging capabilities, first-class service, and attention to detail, Casino Del Sol is well-equipped to accommodate a wide range of events.
Both event space projects at Casino Del Sol and Casino of the Sun are part of a larger hospitality project that also includes a new 90-space RV park, scheduled to open in late June and a new 151-room hotel, scheduled to open this November. The general contractor for these projects is McCarthy Building Companies. The architect is Cuningham Group.
“We are honored and proud of our continued relationship with the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Casino Del Sol,” said McCarthy Vice President Operations Kurt Nyberg. “We are grateful for the ongoing relationship and are excited to be involved in these projects.”
