One look at the Frank Gehry-designed Keep Memory Alive Event Center Las Vegas and you know you’re in for an event like none other. Nestled in the downtown Symphony Park just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, the attention-demanding building seems worlds away from the corporate cluster of boring and bland hotel ballrooms.
One of a Kind Frank Gehry Design
Walking through the breezeway and lush Gehry-designed garden into the undulating stainless steel canopy dotted with 199 windows (no two the same shape or size), you can’t help but let your mind wander to imagine the almost infinite amount of ways the space can be transformed. From weddings, corporate events, bar and bat mitzvahs to social celebrations, the event center combines iconic design, extraordinary dining and the city’s most innovative LED light presentation to create a truly unique experience. And with the proceeds going to the research, treatment and clinical studies at the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, your unforgettable event will help others remember.
“It’s always exciting to watch clients and guests walk into an event and see their face just light up in awe, not knowing where to look first,” said Keep Memory Alive Event Center Director David Watts. “Our team is passionate about creating one-of-a-kind experiences and we’re always thinking of new ways to up the wow factor.”
Fight MSA Event attracts Celebrity Guests
Such was the case at the Kerry Simon Says Fight MSA event held in February to raise funds for his battle against Multiple System Atrophy, a degenerative neurological disorder. Legendary rockers, such as Alice Cooper and Sammy Hagar, and celebrity chefs including Daniel Boulud and Michael Mina, came together in an epic night to entertain and cook for 450 guests, raising nearly $525,000.
“We wanted a venue that could do it all, from staging to lighting to catering and the Keep Memory Alive Event Center had everything, plus the design and the aesthetic is just really breathtaking,” said event organizer Elizabeth Blau. “We couldn’t have been more thrilled with the whole process. Our event was a major success because of the Keep Memory Alive Event Center and its team!”
