MICHAEL FULLER

Fuller entered the hospitality industry as a nightlife promoter at the age of 19. He was instrumental in developing Las Vegas’ rave and underground party scene in the early ’90s, and at that time had a reputation for events that combine fashion, art, performance, and music into multi-sensory experiences.

Fuller founded the brand development firm, Moving Sun Studios, in 1992, which completed work for the Light Group, Peter Morton’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, House of Blues, MGM Resort Group, and Cirque du Soleil to name a few.

Fuller joined the management team at what was then a brand-new club, Utopia, in 1996, which became the go-to spot for electronic music in Las Vegas. During his tenure, he functioned as the marketing director as well as resident dj. The club became the most legendary club in Las Vegas within a year and eventually was listed as Top 10 clubs in the world to experience.

Fuller went on to create a wide range of popular weekly local parties, including SIN on Sundays at House of Blues, Godspeed at Foundation Room and Red Dragon Lounge at China Grill.

He managed the new Baby’s at the Hard Rock Hotel (later renamed Body English, closed on New Year’s Eve 2010), and ICE Las Vegas. During his time at ICE, he was featured on the reality show, The Club on Spike TV.

Fuller made the move to the Palms Casino Resort in 2006, whereas he became the corporate director of marketing at the N9NE Group. Less than two years into the project, he was named the sole vice president of the company, and oversaw operations totaling a gross revenue of almost $100M at Rain Nightclub, Moon and Ghostbar ultra lounges, the world’s only Playboy Club, two restaurants, Nové Italiano and N9NE Steakhouse, Palms Pool & Bungalows, along with the newly opened Ghostbar Dallas at the top of the W Hotel. Fuller also delivered Las Vegas its first international superstar DJ resident—Paul Oakenfold and Perfecto Las Vegas—as well as DJ AM, who was later replaced by DJ Z-Trip. This residency was the start of the international dj residencies in Las Vegas. During this time, he attracted considerable attention for his international marketing campaigns, which helped attract new, mostly European clients to N9NE Group venues.  Fuller also created signature event brands Ditch Fridays at Palms Pool & Bungalows, Sunday After Dark at Playboy Club, an annual Playboy-themed Midsummer Night’s Dream party, and brought Hed Kandi to Moon and Down & Derby to Rain Nightclub.

Fuller and N9NE Group parted ways in March 2010, but he soon landed as vice president of business development at Neil Moffitt’s Angel Management Group in 2010, where he did a brief stint doing the Pure Management Group acquisition, brand development, advertising and promotions for Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel, Wet Republic, and Studio 54 at MGM Grand.

In 2012 he became the Executive Vice President of Development for Warner Hospitality after consulting for the company under Movingsun, the same company he has had since the start of his career. His client list at the time also included Paul Oakenfold, SBE, Hyde Bellagio, and Red Bull. His project portfolio for Warner Hospitality included capturing the gaming license and then proceeding to develop the entertainment strategy for the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City, acquire and develop the hotel arm of the new management group which started with a boutique hotel named The William in New York City which opened in December 2013.

Since his departure from Warner Hospitality in 2014, Fuller has pushed himself to expand his skill set by taking on bigger and more challenging projects that are rewarding to him personally and professionally. This includes but is not limited to the development and management of Lucky Foo’s Restaurant & Bar; the branding and launch of a pool club for Mt Airy Casino and Resort in Mt Pocono, PA; the branding, development, and operations of the food and beverage, catering, and entertainment departments at Jungle Island in Miami, FL; research & development for E11EVEN in Miami, FL; and rebranding, development, and ongoing management for Joey’s Italian Café in Miami, FL. Fuller’s biggest success and most prized possession is his family where he has been happily married for six years with a 7-year-old son named Sage and a new baby girl named Jade.
