Mohegan Sun is planning to open a new, $80 million conference center next summer to cater to convention and meeting business.

The Expo Center expansion has been authorized and is slated to open in the summer of 2018 -- "just in time for the Barrett-Jackson Northeast 2018" car collector auction, leaders of the Mohegan Sun and the Mohegan tribe said in an announcement.

The Mohegan tribe plans to unveil the expansion at a Thursday press conference.

The total size of the expansion, including the 131,000-square-foot Expo Center, will be 240,000 gross square feet, Mohegan Sun said.

The proposed center would be located in a vacant area next to the casino's Winter Garage and link to the garage and the Earth casino and tower, a spokesman said, confirming a published report.
