Maryland Gambling Expansion: MGM To Hold Event In Anticipation Of National Harbor Casino
Casino Developer To Help Local Businesses Prep For Resort
MGM Resorts International looks like a significant favorite to win the right to build a massive casino-resort in Prince George’s County, Maryland. In anticipation of this, the casino firm’s subsidiary, MGM National Harbor, will begin to help local businesses prepare.
MGM will host two information sessions on Friday, Sept. 27 for Prince George’s County businesses seeking to do business at the proposed destination casino-resort, according to a press release. The sessions will bring purchasing, construction and other company experts to Maryland to answer questions about working with the casino giant.
“These events are in response to the large number of calls we receive every week from local businesses that want to be ready to work with us in Maryland,” Lorenzo Creighton, President and Chief Operating Officer of MGM National Harbor, said in a statement.
“We are committed to working with local businesses, minority-owned businesses and women-owned businesses from Prince George’s County. We’ll explain our company processes and requirements and what local businesses can do in advance to be ready to compete for work at MGM National Harbor.”
MGM held a similar event in 2012. It drew more than 300 local business people.
In May, MGM filed a proposal for a license from the Maryland Video Lottery Facility Location Commission. It is competing with Penn National Gaming for the right to build.
The proposed MGM site would be constructed on more than 20 acres of land at National Harbor, which is located on the Potomac River, about 15 miles south of Washington, D.C.
Penn National wants to build a casino at its Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington.
A decision by the state is expected by the end of the year.
