LAS VEGAS, May 8, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- "The lives and ideas of the world's most influential people" was the headline on the special May 8, 2006 issue of Time Magazine. Steve Wynn, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Wynn Resorts, Ltd. was honored in the "Builders and Titans" category of the publication. Those recognized as "Builders and Titans" were individuals who exhibit an extraordinary ability to influence the world of business. Time said these are people with "innovation, grand plans, style and substance." Some of the other notaries recognized in this category included: Sean (Diddy) Combs, Wall Street Investor Eddie Lampart, Xerox's Anne Mulcahy and MySpace.com creators Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson.
The article proclaimed Wynn "didn't invent Las Vegas -- he just makes it work," and praised him for being one of the world's best salesmen, real estate developers and "the gaming industry's most brilliant designer."
The opening of Wynn Las Vegas in April 2005 was highlighted for being significantly different from his previous properties (such as the Mirage, Bellagio and Treasure Island) because this time Wynn designed his resort from the "inside out." Stating Wynn's ability to cater to a multitude of different markets and cultures, the opening of Wynn Macau, scheduled for September 2006, was also mentioned.
Finally, the article said "in the next millennium, when people study the U.S. empire, they won't be looking at buildings created by Frank Lloyd Wright or Frank Gehry. They'll be looking at our temples of pleasure, the buildings where we packed in as much America as would fit. And, somehow, Steve Wynn has done it in a way we won't be ashamed of."
