Hard Rock International headquarters will be relocated outside Orlando, the traditional city host of the company.
US.- Hard Rock International will no longer run its operations through its Orlando’s headquarter. According to local press, the American hotel and casino company operated by the Seminole native tribe will relocate its headquarters in Hollywood, Florida. The relocation has apparently been set to Summer 2018.
“Hard Rock International has announced it will move staff headquarters from Orlando to South Florida, joining forces with ownership, The Seminole Tribe of Florida, and The Seminole Gaming organisation. The opportunity to combine the world-class talent of all three companies will create an even more powerful organisation. At this time, details of the move and timing are still to be determined,” stated the company.
The relocation was set after the president and CEO of Hard Rock, Hamish Dodds left the company earlier this year. Hard Rock International also plans to improve its operations in America with the upcoming renovations of the casino Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. The company finished the acquisition of the gambling facility during the first week of April.
The summer of 2018 opening might include restaurant and poolside gambling, fantasy sports betting, skill-based slots and hidden VIP gambling rooms. During a conference earlier this year, Chairman of Hard Rock International Jim Allen said that the proposal is set to create more than 1000 construction jobs and once it’s finalised, additional 3000 permanent jobs will be set in place. The renovated venue will change its name to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.
The opening would also include approximately 2400 slots and 130 gaming tables. According to documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Hard Rock International paid US$50 million for the Trump Taj Mahal. Billionaire Carl Icahn got for the Atlantic City-based casino just 4 cents on the dollar in comparison to the US$1.2 billion it had cost to Donald Trump in 1990.
