The 55,000-square-foot events center at 3650 N. Nevada Ave. stages an unveiling at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, when partners in the project will talk about "a major community partner" who "has signed a five-year agreement for naming sponsorship rights."
The former TRW building has undergone a $3 million renovation, a project in which the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and the Housing and Building Association of Colorado Springs participated. The building is owned by the University of Colorado, according to land records. The HBA will run the facility.
The HBA says in a press release:
The 55,000 sq. ft Expo Center is centrally located and provides easy access for show
vendors and for the general public. From the free parking spaces on the outside to the 18’
high ceilings and wide open spaces on the inside, the Expo Center is ideal for any promoter
- offering diverse layout options to fit their vendors’ needs. The facility has a state of the
art sound system, zoned heating and cooling system, adjustable lighting, available wi-fi,
secured ticket sales, two ATM machines, a 12’x14’ ramped overhead door, a designated
loading dock, ample power and a full-service cafe.
