New Approaches to Project Delivery

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.
