"Titanic ... The Artifact Exhibition is the type of world class attraction the Las Vegas visitor expects -- it's an unforgettable experience," says Gary Van Hettinga, President and General Manager of Tropicana Resort & Casino. "We are looking forward to great success with this exhibition as we previously enjoyed on two occasions in our Atlantic City property."

Arnie Geller, President and CEO of Premier Exhibitions, commented, "Tropicana is located on the busiest corner of the Las Vegas strip and is perfect for showcasing this remarkable exhibition which now features the 'Big Piece' -- a 15 ton section of Titanic's hull." Mr. Geller continued, "We again look forward to another successful collaboration with Tropicana's impressive management team."

There will be 300 artifacts displayed in this 25,000-square-foot exhibition facility that recreates many areas of the historic ship and features authentic artifacts rescued from the wreck site, which lies two and a half miles beneath the North Atlantic Ocean. Visitors to the exhibition take a chronological journey through the tale of Titanic, from the construction of the legendary ship, to life onboard and ultimately to its tragic sinking. Titanic ... The Artifact Exhibition has been seen by more than 15 million visitors worldwide, making it the most highly attended and enduring traveling exhibition in history.

[ Does mean that somebody actually IS re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic? Does this mean that the Trop is about to 'go under'? Does this vindicate Bob Stupak and his cockamamie idea of building a 'Titanic' themed mega-resort on the Vegas Strip? So many questions, so little brain cells left. - Ed ]
