| July 17, 2017

Uncasville, CT – A/Z Corporation is well underway on the major expansion to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville. The $80 million convention-exposition center will have a total of 240,000sf. The official announcement was made in March with a news conference at Mohegan Sun.

The new facility will be located next to the 400-room Earth Tower hotel, which A/Z completed at the end of 2016. Its footprint will be the size of two football fields, with 108,000sf of convention center space and a 132,000sf exposition center.

Mohegan Tribal chairman, Kevin Brown, stated at the news conference, “This new conference center will help solidify Mohegan Sun as not just the premier conventions destination, but the premier resort in the Northeast region. It will enable us to host some of the largest trade shows in the nation and take back some of the lost conventions that seek bigger venues in Boston and New York.”

Construction is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2018 in time for the third annual Barret-Jackson Northeast auto auction, which has come to be the Mohegan Sun’s largest event.
