Ground was broken Thursday on a $5.8 million, 32,500-square-foot expansion to the Gateway Center in Collinsville, Ill. The project will add 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space to the facility, which will have a total of 40,000 square feet of exhibit space when the expansion is completed next July. The Gateway Center is 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis.
