Three months ahead of schedule and $17.5 million under budget, the newly expanded Reno-Sparks Convention Center was unveiled earlier this month.

Construction of the renovated center took only 14 months after the official groundbreaking, according to the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority.

The $105 million expansion includes more than 500,000 square feet of rentable space within a “modern, high-tech convention and trade show facility,” according to the RSCVA.

Bob Brown, RSCVA vice president of sales and marketing, said the center is now capable of hosting national and regional shows and staging multiple groups simultaneously.

Brown added that the RSCVA plans to bring more than 300 meeting planners to Reno in March in three familiarization trips.
