Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE -

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.
