Update on the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center Project

The NEW GWCCA will soon include a SAVANNAH campus!
We are so proud to share the news that that the Georgia International Maritime and Trade Center Authority (GIMTCA) approved the selection of the GWCCA to manage the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center (SITCC)!!! GWCCA’s responsibilities will include the management and operation of the SITCC, as well as working collaboratively with the “Visit Savannah” team in marketing the convention center. Our management contract will commence on April 1, 2014 and the process to negotiate a definitive; multi-year agreement is underway with details to follow soon!
In addition, this week Frank and our strike team members are on the SITCC campus and were able to meet with the Savannah staff in a “Town Hall” type setting to begin the onboarding process. This includes laying out elements of our shared strategic vision and reviewing some immediate next steps relative to the accelerated transition. The presentation from today’s meeting in Savannah is attached to this post for your review. Should you have any questions, please send them to jlemaster@gwcc.com or comment below.
