Over the course of the last decade, MGM Resorts has engaged in a sweeping transformation, building a new Company on an entirely new trajectory and forging a single, unified vision about who we are and what we do.
Our Las Vegas roots are a proud part of our history and a signature element of everything we create, wherever we may go. In our eyes, entertainment is not extracurricular – it’s a fundamental human need. Therefore, we exist to ENTERTAIN THE HUMAN RACE.
We accomplish this goal every day through four core beliefs that have long remained tenets of our strategy and operating philosophy:
- Develop and create extraordinary experiences.
- Provide consistent and outstanding guest service.
- Build and sustain the communities in which we work and live.
- Be respectful, inclusive and responsible in all we do.
Our origins date back to the late 1960s and an eighth-grade dropout named Kirk Kerkorian, who became one of the most famous and successful businessmen of his generation. A one-time owner of the renowned Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie studio (which today has no relationship to MGM Resorts International), he is widely credited as among the early pioneers of Las Vegas. He built the International Hotel in 1962—the largest hotel in the world at that time—whose first two performers were Barbra Streisand and Elvis Presley. Just four years later, he built the MGM Grand Hotel which surpassed International Hotel in size and was larger, even, than the Empire State Building.
In 2000, long after Kerkorian had left the business, MGM Grand, Inc., the holding company he founded, acquired Mirage Resorts in what was the largest transaction of its kind in the gaming industry at that time. The new company, named MGM MIRAGE, acquired Mandalay Resort Group in 2005 and retained the MGM MIRAGE name until 2010, when the Company was renamed MGM Resorts International.
Since then, what once was a casino-driven, Las Vegas-anchored operation has become a global entertainment brand, offering the world’s most exciting and diverse portfolio of guest experiences through a singular, unified strategy. No other company with roots in gaming has undergone a transformation quite like ours. A conscious strategy to take the best of our history, combine it with our largest ambitions for the future and execute with one common vision has revolutionized the way we do business. Today, many of our resorts are showcases of entertainment choices and our global suite of experiences means guests can find a little bit of the best of Las Vegas in locations throughout the United States and in other areas of the world.
Our approach to creating entertainment experiences is built on three core tenets:
Las Vegas is in our DNA, so we take the best, most innovative ideas of our hometown wherever we go. Believing entertainment is more than fun, it’s a fundamental human need, we develop and create immersive experiences that redefine conventional notions of entertainment and are extraordinary in every way.
Place & Scale.
We create spaces that allow our guests to immerse themselves in the experience through beautiful architecture, compelling design or surprising elements that create whimsy and delight, culminating in inviting spaces that bring people together. While our destinations are inspired by the lights, sparkle and sound of the incomparable Las Vegas Strip, we strive to ensure that our resorts honor and reflect the most special elements of the surrounding community.
Our projects are integrated into the very fabric of the region and aim to reflect, sustain and build on the best of a community – its businesses, neighborhoods and institutions. Its art, culture and local nuance. We invest heavily in locally and minority-owned businesses and community nonprofits. We work with government, business and civic leaders to earn the licenses we are granted.
