Albany's Convention CenterGovernor Pataki's budget will include $75 million in state aid for proposed $200 million downtown Albany convention center. The Convention center is on the Rentacomputer.com target list of new convention centers that will be serviced by Tech Travel Agents.
"This project will create hundreds of new jobs and will
result in opportunities for new economic development in our
region that will make our city one of the premiere
destination centers in the nation for convention-related
tourism" said Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings.
Pataki said "The creation of a convention center in Albany that will provide a venue for major conventions and events and attracts thousands of tourists every year is one of our key regional priorities for the state's capital city.'' Source: timesunion.com
New York State Assemblymen John McEneny, and other members of a convention center board, will now go about spending the next 14 months assessing sites within one mile of the Capitol for a recommendation on where to build the convention center and accompanying hotel. Sites at the top and bottom of State Street have been proposed.
