5/20/10- I attended a meeting today in which the Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority (DRCFA) provided updates on the Cobo Hall renovation plan.  The future looks bright!  In addition to structural enhancements, it’s clear that a cultural change is in the air.  The transition team is taking great care to build a facility that will be customer-friendly, perhaps setting new standards nationwide.

1/30/12- Update on Cobo Center (aka Cobo Hall) Renovations

I visited with Cobo Center staff last week for an update on their renovation plans.  Extensive renovations will be phased in over the next three years, and many of the behind the scenes changes have already taken place.  When all is said and done, there will be some beautiful spaces for meetings, receptions and special events, including a new 38,000 sq. foot ballroom overlooking the river.  For more information on the transformation of Detroit’s convention center, check out this video.
