Officials thrilled with numbers since opening of Convention Center


Owensboro Convention Center officials say they're thrilled with the number of people who've come through their doors since they opened six weeks ago. 

The Owensboro Convention Center Exhibit Hall is like a theatre stage. Decorations and scenery are constantly changing. 

Convention Center officials say they've had 43 events at the Owensboro Convention Center since it opened six weeks ago, which comes in at nearly one event a day.

The Convention Center has brought an estimated 30,000 visitors to downtown Owensboro in that time. Officials say the flexible spaces lend themselves easily to many different events from trade shows to galas.

"When the citizens came together, they envisioned a building that houses multi events with lots of attendance driving traffic through the downtown. That's what they really envisioned when they built this and I think it's really coming true," says Dennis Dean with the Convention Center.
