NYC & Company, New York City's convention and visitors bureau, has hired Tim McGuinness as vice president of sales and convention center expansion. The latter aspect of the post means McGuinness will help move forward the process of expanding and selling the city's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, which currently offers 814,400 square feet of exhibit space, and the construction of the 75,000-seat New York Sports and Convention Center, a project that currently is being debated.
