AEG OGDEN RUNNING BACK TO LA CONVENTION CENTRE

USA – International convention centre management group AEG Ogden’s CEO and President, Tim Leiweke, said the group is “exploring” a management deal with the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The group currently manages the LA Live and Staples Center and hopes the proposal would bring a National Football League (NFL) team to the downtown area of the city.

AEG Ogden would invest US$1bn to redevelop one of the centre’s halls into an exhibition space, which could double as an enclosed NFL stadium. This would increase the amount of exhibition and meeting space from 80,546 to 130,000sqm.

Leiweke said he believed the increase would boost the city’s convention and exhibition business and infrastructure development. “Game, set, match. Everything else will come,” he told The Canadian Press. “Retail will come, transportation will come and people will move back down here.”
