Dayton Convention Center Hires Events Management Company, Plans Upgrades

Mike Colvin Fast Facts

After being closed for a year because of the pandemic, the Dayton Convention Center will reopen in May and officials told the Dayton Daily News that the facility, which was built in 1973, is expected to undergo a multi-phase and multi-million-dollar renovation over the next four years. A master plan for the renovations will be shared in the coming months, officials said, and the company ASM Global has been hired to provide management services for the convention center and will be collaborating with the Dayton Convention & Visitors Bureau and area hospitality stakeholders for marketing and promoting the center. In the near future, the convention center has 21 multi-day groups on the calendar for later this year after it reopens, and more events are expected to be scheduled. And, after holding local COVID-19 vaccination clinics in the center since December, it was recently selected to be a state-run, long-term mass vaccination site.
