The Sands Expo and Convention Center is a convention center located in Paradise, Nevada, near the Las Vegas Strip. The Sands Expo is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, and is frequently used for conventions booked at the company's adjoining Venetian and Palazzo resorts. It is also used as overflow space for conventions that outgrow the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Sands Expo opened in 1990 behind the Sands Hotel, which was later replaced by the Venetian.
In 1989, the Sands Hotel received county approval for a convention center with approximately 1.1-million-square-foot, rivaling the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Sands Expo and Convention Center was completed in 1990. At its launch, it was the only privately owned and operated convention center in the United States, and was the second largest convention center in the world.
