Revised naming rights agreement for ONB Events Plaza approved

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The Vanderburgh County Commissioners voted Tuesday night to approve a revised naming rights agreement with Old National Bank.

Back in 2013, the commissioners agreed to change the name of The Centre in downtown Evansville to the Old National Bank Events Plaza.

ONB received the naming rights as part of its deal to help finance the new downtown convention hotel.

Bank officials say they've agreed to pay the county $175,000 for naming rights in 2014 and 2015 since they've already benefited from the name change.

It also means the county gets compensated for those two years should the hotel deal fall through.

Bank officials also say signage with the name 'Old National Events Plaza' will go up on the building within the next 30 days.
