Convention Competition

Earthwork continues Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013, for construction of the $27 million expansion to the Bismarck Civic Center's Exhibit Hall, at left. The expansion, which will double the hall's trade floor space from 50,000 to 100,000 square feet, is expected to be substantially completed by May, Civic Center General Manager Charlie Jeske said. The head of Fargo-Moorhead's Convention and Visitors Bureau says the expansion of the Bismarck Civic Center will give Bismarck an edge in the competition for conventions.
