Another resort on the Las Vegas Strip could be in the works for MGM Resorts. The south end of the Strip could get another resort-casino courtesy of MGM Resorts International, which is also working on a strategy to attract more of its regional customers to Las Vegas. MGM’s chief financial officer Jonathan Halkyard said the south end of the Strip, near Allegiant Stadium and T-Mobile Arena, is the new focus for tourists, CDC Gaming Reports writes. The gaming giant acquired the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in September, as well, giving it domination of the southern end of the gaming corridor. Halyard’s comments and speculation came during Morgan Stanley’s Virtual Global Consumer & Retail Conference. [CDC Gaming Reports]
