Big announcement coming today from O'boro Convention Center

Posted: Updated:

Officials are expected to make a big announcement today about the Owensboro Convention Center.

It's scheduled to take place at the overlook in Smothers Park at 2 p.m.

We don't know too many details just yet, but staff members say that we'll learn about a highly-anticipated new show that's taking place at the Convention Center next year.

They predict that it's going to be a big success and generate regional excitement.

About a month ago, the Convention Center announced its first big event for next year: The Outdoor Owensboro Hunting and Fishing Expo.

It's the first self-promoted event for Global Spectrum, which manages the Convention Center.

The company says it expects more than 5,000 people to attend.

Over the past several weeks, crews have been wrapping up roof work as some of the walls start taking shape.

They plan to start installing glass very soon.

Management says its continuing to look for future opportunities to put business in the building once it opens.
