The City of Evansville could possibly face some local competition when booking conventions.
Word began spreading last week that a new convention center might be built on property off North Burkhardt.
That could mean some direct competition for the city's new convention center and hotel just down the road in Downtown Evansville.
"It's going to be looking to fill its hotel and its meeting space with a lot of the same business we would be looking to fill our meeting space with. The difference is public facilities versus private facilities," said Bob Warren with the Evansville Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
