TERRE HAUTE, Indiana (WTWO/WAWV) — Just over a month remains until the grand opening of the Terre Haute Convention Center.
Convention center general manager Tennille Wanner said the facility recently obtained its certificate of occupancy and is currently moving everything into the building.
The center is also currently recruiting for part-time and full-time positions. Career fairs will be held on March 16 and 19 at the offices located at 800 Wabash Avenue.
Wanner said the convention center came together beautifully and the venue is very versatile.
“We can host events ranging from a five-person meeting to an 800-person banquet,” Wanner said. “So we can really do a lot in this facility.”
Convention center officials are asking the public to join them for a grand opening celebration on April 9. Fun activities are planned for the big day.
“To see it and to be able to invite the public to come see it and enjoy it is just an incredible feeling,” said Pam Chamberlain, director of sales and marketing. “It’s historic for Terre Haute and I’m just grateful to be a part of it.”
The grand opening will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 9.
