Following the announcement that the University of Massachusetts Boston will buy the 240,000-square-foot Bayside Exposition Center, Ballantine Management Group has assured clients that all scheduled events will take place through April. "With the reopening of Bayside, we were aware of a potential sale," BMG president Tom Ballantine said in a statement. "BMG neither promised nor booked any events after April." The university plans to use the waterfront building to supplant existing facilities during renovations and expansions.
