Las Vegas, the city of entertainment, is set to welcome a new iconic structure, the MSG Sphere, which is expected to be completed in 2023. The $2.2 billion arena, which stands at 110 meters high and 157 meters wide, promises to deliver the ultimate immersive experience for its audience.
The 17,500-seat venue was originally scheduled to open in 2021, but construction was halted in April 2020 due to the pandemic. Despite this setback, Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. remains confident that the arena will soon become a major tourist attraction in the city, generating hundreds of millions of dollars in the local economy.
The MSG Sphere boasts the largest 16K LED screen ever made, an impressive sound system, and vibrating seats. However, what truly sets the facility apart is the innovative technology that will be used to create a unique and unparalleled experience for the audience.
Visitors will have the opportunity to feel the wind, smell the scents, and experience the temperature changes that correspond with what is happening on the screen.
"We feel very good about the sponsorship opportunities, especially in Vegas," says Madison Square Garden Chief Financial Officer David Brynes.
