Utah Vally Convention Center construction on track

Construction of the new Utah Valley Convention Center is a little bit ahead of schedule and on track according to county officials. In addition, Global Spectrum, a Comcast subsidiary, was selected at the center's facility operators. The contract is expected to be completed by Feb. 1. The new convention center, at 100 N. Freedom Blvd., will be a total of 140,000 square feet and house a 20,000-square-foot exhibit hall; the second floor has an 18,000-square-foot ballroom; and 10,000 square feet is reserved for meeting rooms. There is also a full-service kitchen and it will also be the new home for the Utah County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Provo Daily Herald
