Convention Centre nearly done
From Niagara This Week:
Kerry Painter has a busy week ahead of her.
As the president and general manager of the soon-to-be-complete Scotiabank Convention Centre, there are a lot of last minute details to tend to before the grand opening next Friday. The $100-million project on Stanley Avenue in Niagara Falls is coming in on-budget and almost a full-month early. The early opening, Painter said, is because of the increased demand for the space. The new convention centre had already booked events before ground broke in May 2009, but as construction continue, spots kept filling up. She said grand opening plans kept getting moved forward, until it finally reached the April 8 date that has now been set.
