A $5.8 million expansion has opened at
the Gateway Center, a conference center in Collinsville, Ill.
Almost 10,000 square feet of exhibit space contiguous, with an
existing 30,000-square-foot exhibit hall, was added. The project
also created 22,500 square feet of other public, office and lobby
space. The center now offers more than 100,000 square feet of
meeting and exhibit space.
New York Governor George E. Pataki
announced last week a $20 million commitment to build a
65,000-square-foot conference center in Lake Placid. The center
will accommodate groups of 1,000. Groundbreaking expected next
June, and ribbon-cutting for November 2008.
