More conventions predicted for Halifax
The World Trade and Convention Centre held an event Monday to get people who work and own businesses downtown up to speed on the progress of the new Halifax Convention Centre.
“We’ve done these, roughly, on a quarterly basis,” said WTCC president and CEO Scott Ferguson after he and sales manager Dawn Baldwin gave a short presentation.
“It’s a chance to give them an update on construction in their neighbourhood.”
At this one, just 11 people heard the latest news about the new convention centre.
“The number isn’t so important, as it is just the openness and willingness to get the information out,” said Ferguson.
Those few who did come out saw an updated video of what the interior of the space will look like, with commentary from the architects who designed it.
Much of the details of the building are finalized now and Ferguson said more details will be available in September.
