controlled and features an oversized fire- place for extra ambiance.We can accom- modate up to 125 guests for reception style events,”he notes.


Gonzalez also adds that besides the ban- quet and restaurant catering services, they also offer gaming incentives to qualifying event groups,as well as event services uti- lizing outside vendors (such asmock casi- no games,entertainment and more).


Maryland Live! Casino is owned and oper- ated by The Cordish Companies. It is con- stantly evolving, and is great for planners looking to mix up their usual event spots. According to Gonzalez,“It’s a great alter- native to the 'same old' hotel banquet spaces. Having events in non-traditional venues such as a casino can boost atten- dance, attention, and could be a major money saver."


He continues, "A typical event in a ban- quet facility or hotel is about four hours and needs to be covered with food,bever- age and entertainment, which can drive up cost.With us, for example,a group can have a two-hour event with catered food and beverage - cutting cost in half -, then everyone can explore the casino on their own -we do supply the gaming incentives. Typically,everyone can come to the enter- tainment that we offer complimentary on most nights. This is still a four-plus hour outing, but the group only had to cover two hours financially on their own.”
