Step right up and witness the ultimate entertainment destination! A colossal 282,000 SF project featuring a 4,100 seated-fan arena, a conference center that can accommodate up to 15,000 people, and a stunning hotel.
The arena is the ultimate VIP experience with luxurious suites, locker rooms, athletic offices, press room, weight/athletic training rooms, ticket office, and practice gyms.

In the hospitality management program, students will get hands-on experience running a boutique hotel. The Jana & Ken Kahn hotel is one immense learning lab that will give students the experience necessary to succeed in their careers. With 30 beautiful rooms, and the fine dining restaurant Alo connected, students can build confidence in a professional setting. It’s the ultimate destination for entertainment, education, and hospitality all in one!
