IGMAS’ involvement, Schaffhauser continued, was "a fine example of personal commitment, perseverance, and diplomacy that raised the level of the entire project team’s performance".
David Miller, IGMAS’ Vice President of Gaming and Hospitality Services indicated that outsourcing key roles is such efforts are becoming more the norm in today’s business environment. "It is our experience that many organizations are seeking outsourced services to assist with managing specialty projects, to supplement their own resources when additional staffing is needed, and to gain the necessary expertise and experience that is too costly to maintain with in-house staffing."
Colony Resorts LVH will invest up to $67 million over a four-year period to renovate the hotel, including updates to the guest rooms, restaurants and casino area and will focus on developing convention business for the hotel. It has further entered into an agreement with Hilton Hotels Corporation pursuant to which the hotel will continue to use certain elements of the Hilton brand, primarily The Hilton Reservation System.
