Marriott International and MGM Resorts International have announced the creation of MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy as part of an exclusive long-term strategic licensing agreement. Launching in October, the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy encompasses 17 of MGM's resorts--representing more than 40,000 rooms in Las Vegas and other cities across the United States. Book today through the SEMA Show's official hotel provider, onPeak.
"Many of us book hotels by the loyalty programs they offer, and historically, Marriott Bonvoy members only had a few options in Las Vegas. But now, with the announcement of a new agreement between Marriott and MGM, Bonvoy members can earn awards at several MGM properties within the official SEMA Show block. And MGM Rewards members will be able to link to Bonvoy, creating a win/win for both loyalty programs. This is a great, new opportunity for SEMA attendees to generate points during their time at the Show," said Andy Tompkins, SEMA trade show director.
The announcement directly benefits attendees of the 2023 SEMA Show, October 31-November 3 in Las Vegas, as the new program gives Marriott and MGM loyalty members access to a new and inspiring level of experiences, as Marriott Bonvoy and MGM Rewards will unlock significant benefits and experiences for members of both programs:
- Members of MGM Rewards, MGM Resorts' acclaimed loyalty platform with more than 40 million members globally, will be eligible to link accounts with Marriott Bonvoy and receive select member benefits.
- Members of Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott's award-winning loyalty platform with more than 180 million members globally, will be able to earn and redeem points for stays at all MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy properties.
- Marriott Bonvoy members will enjoy benefits at MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy resorts.
- MGM Rewards members will receive certain benefits at Marriott Bonvoy's global portfolio of more than 8,500 properties.
- Members of both programs will be able to exchange MGM Rewards points for Marriott Bonvoy points and vice versa.
- Marriott Bonvoy Moments, the program providing members access to unparalleled experiences, will be enhanced by MGM's unmatched culinary, entertainment and sports offerings.
"This historic, long-term agreement brings together two of the most trusted and iconic brands in hospitality and entertainment," said Bill Hornbuckle, president and CEO, MGM Resorts.
"We are excited to make MGM Resorts' incredible properties available on Marriott channels, allowing our members to enjoy Marriott Bonvoy benefits when they stay at MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy resorts," said Anthony Capuano, president and CEO, Marriott International.
