The convention centre proposal is the first of Council’s ‘8 Big Ideas’ and is a catalyst for the Council’s economic growth agenda.
We believe the proposal will:
- provide a good economic return to the city for the level of investment
- allow the city to maintain and grow its share of the convention market in the face of tougher competition from other cities
- attract a range of different format conferences that the city has traditionally not been able to host
- overall act as a catalyst for more economic growth.
