Task force’s Dayton Convention Center plan to be revealed tonight

The convention center could be redeveloped, re-invested in or even demolished, according to a press release from the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce. The facility has operated with a budgetary loss since 2012, according to the release.

A 2015 study on the facility recommended upgrades that would make the convention center more marketable to conventions and event planners would cost up to $28 million.

The task force, made up of various community leaders and representatives both the public and private sectors, met from January to July of this year. Today’s recommendations don’t represent a final master plan.
