COBO Renovations End June 30

Cobo Center renovations will wrap up by the end of June. The project began five years ago and included upgrades to Cobo Arena, as well as ballrooms and meeting rooms at the convention center.

General Manager Thom Connors says one of the big improvements is a digital marquee.

It will be informing people of what’s going on and what’s coming up with current attractions and coming attractions here at the center,” Connors says.  ”We’ll also include video highlights regarding downtown and area attractions.”

Connors says the video wall will be 160 feet wide and 30 feet tall.  The wall will look out toward Jefferson on Washington Boulevard.
