Plans for a new St. Louis convention center were recently unveiled. Proposed by Clayco CEO Bob Clark, this project was first pitched two and a half years ago but is now going public as a result of federal infrastructure money and a potential settlement for the Ram’s departure from St. Louis.
Clark proposes that St. Louis does away with its $200 million convention center and replaces it with an $800 million convention center that drives more meeting and convention business to the city. This would expand the current convention center space from 500,000 square-feet to more than 650,000 square-feet, which would include the additions of a larger ballroom, more “usable” exhibit space, and 26 loading docs.
