    Convention center expansion report

    A progress report on the expansion of the convention center and addition of new hotel facilities just outside the north gate of Port Everglades is on tap for Friday, Sept. 6.

    Broward County Assistant County Administrator Alan J. Cohen is slated to talk about the newly launched $1.075 billion undertaking and the dynamic impact the bigger Broward County Convention Center (expanded to 1.2 million square feet) and new 800-room Omni Hotel will have in further boosting tourism while interacting with Port Everglades? cruise business.

    The convention center expansion and new headquarters hotel with public spaces and waterfront amenities are expected to bolster the local economy by more than $100 million a year, by attracting more convention and trade show business, increasing overall tourism and creating over 1000 new post-construction jobs in Broward County.
