letter from general manager
We are proud to announce the launch of our new company brand identity as part of the ongoing evolution of the Luxor Resort & Casino, Las Vegas. The Luxor Resort brand is one of our most valuable assets. We want you to become advocates for our brand and help us use it contently. Our brand is expressed in many ways — our behaviour, our service, our communications. We are asking you to pay special attention to all the ways we express our brand. The pyramid at Luxor Resort in Las Vegas, with its beam of light, provides a striking visual even on the overtly glamorous Las Vegas Strip. One of the most recognizable structures in Las Vegas, the 30-story pyramid — an architectural wonder — invites curiosity, while the inside rewards visitors with equal parts excitement, mystery and intrigue. Since we are owned and operated MGM Resorts International, our mission and core belief are closely inherited from our parent company. 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. Experience 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. 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.
