 MGM Resorts & McCann NY Declare Mission to Entertain the Human Race

MGM Resorts International, parent brand to 27 resorts on the Las Vegas Strip and beyond, is launching the first brand campaign in the history of the company, based on the belief that humans are born with a need to be entertained. As home to some of the world’s most renowned live acts, restaurants, and concert events, the campaign will announce to the world that MGMRI has for one mission: to entertain the human race.
“Welcome to the Show” reflects MGM’s shift from a hospitality and gaming company to a global entertainment brand and showcases the infusion of entertainment within every guest experience – from award-winning live and theatrical performances to interactive dining, immersive nightlife, one-of-a-kind retail, extraordinary spa offerings and more.
The campaign launched on-air at the Emmys and spans TV, Cinema, OOH, Print, Digital and Social.
