Communities across the country are seeing success in developing partnerships to deliver convention centers, hotels, sports venues and entertainment facilities that stimulate local economies and improve the quality of life. The Convention, Sports & Entertainment Facilities Conference spends two days on the latest modes of project delivery solutions and strategies for event facility planning.
The 2024 agenda explores entertainment districts as city “anchors” to drive year-round economic development as well as innovative approaches to expansions, renovations and new developments with a specific emphasis on procurement, financing, planning, design, construction, and operations. Speakers will include project owners, developers, operators, sports leagues and franchises, universities and government leaders who have navigated economic development partnerships from concept to completion.
Discover how alternative project delivery is transforming entertainment and tourism infrastructure around the country!
The program showcases upcoming projects and procurement opportunities, presents best practices in traditional and alternative project delivery, and provides incredible networking opportunities for industry leaders, developers, owners, and local government officials.
At this year’s conference you will find project owners and developers considering their next procurement, responsible for the design and build of facilities, and interested in understanding how different delivery models can address their project needs.
Also attending are convention and visitor’s bureaus, economic development agencies, facility management professionals, construction leaders, architects, building owners, service and technology providers, real estate and design-build professionals, and public representatives who are exploring partnerships and want to better understand the complex interactions to accelerate project delivery needs.
