A couple of months ago, I posted a thank you letter to the construction workers on T-Mobile Arena. Since then we have completed construction (save for the normal “lists” of things we have to clean up and fix) and had a successful opening. In the interim, we created a sign that resides in the arena (near section 4 and 5) to thank not only the construction workers but all others who helped us get here. I thought I’d share the photo, and my own thanks to all those we worked alongside over the months and years to make this dream a reality.
Another photo struck me, I took it after the opening night concert by The Killers – while a fireworks show capped the night (to the tune of Mr. Brightside of course), we programmed a simple message on the video mesh wall on the front of the arena – “Thank You Las Vegas.” Given the support we have received from the local community (business leaders, community leaders, media, the general public), we owed this thank you most of all.
The best part about this project is that we get to realize its potential over the long term, not an opening week. The purpose of T-Mobile Arena is to entertain a whole generation of visitors and Las Vegas residents. We have a lot of work to do to ensure we serve our guests the best we can, it takes a bit to get your legs when you open a new project. But we are already out of the gate strong, with unique experiences inside and out and great performances.
I hope you get to enjoy your favorite artist, fighter, athlete, etc. at T-Mobile Arena. We will do our best to ensure you have a great time, and we already owe you a big debt of gratitude for the support you’ve shown us so far.
