Located 37 miles from Phoenix, Arizona, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and Resort has expanded its conference and event space.

The Events Center at Harrah’s Ak-Chin offers more than 28,350-square-feet with direct access to the 529-room luxury hotel. The flexible space allows multiple configurations to meet event needs, from an intimate board summit to a dazzling reception or an extravagant banquet. 

“The new space at Harrah’s provides numerous locations for every part of a meeting, whether it is a general session in the divisible ballroom or a poolside cocktail party at the scenic outdoor space. Guests can enjoy a retreat-style environment while still having access to live music and multiple nearby entertainment options,” said Abby Hobbs, Director of Sales.

The contemporary Ak-Chin Ballroom, with 18,024-square-feet of function space, can accommodate up to 1,000 attendees banquet style. The ballroom can also be divided into as many as six break-out rooms for smaller groups. The meeting space is accompanied by a generous pre-function space and outdoor venues, such as the private patio off the meeting space or the newly renovated pool deck, which are available for group functions as well. 

“The completion of our recent expansion redefined Harrah’s offerings for meetings and events in Phoenix and the surrounding area,” said Michael Kintner, Director of Marketing and Operations for Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino. “In addition to offering well-appointed and functional space that can accommodate large events, we also offer a variety of amenities including fine dining, entertainment, a courtyard pool, spa, and access to the additional entertainment offerings such as the UltraStar Multi-Tainment Center and AK-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club. 

Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and Resort captures the magic and majesty of the desert Southwest. Incorporating Native American themes and design patterns, Harrah’s is strikingly beautiful and immensely comfortable, providing the perfect venue for weddings, meetings, conferences and events.
