River’s Edge Convention Center A Busy Hub Of Traffic In Downtown St. Cloud [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD - The expanded River's Edge Convention Center continues to bring a lot of visitors to St. Cloud.
Spokesman Tony Goddard says there were few days in the past couple of months when there wasn't an event being held at the facility.
Goddard says from late June through early August is typically the slowest time in the convention center business. He says financially the facility is doing okay.
Goddard says, with the hotel/motel tax, the River's Edge Convention makes a small profit each year. Goddard says larger events, like the recent quilters convention that brought over 6,000 people to town, are coming to St. Cloud with more frequency now that the convention center has expanded.
Goddard heads a citizens advisory board that oversees the operation of the River's Edge Convention Center. They recently hired a sales and marketing person to promote the facility.
Goddard will be giving the St. Cloud City Council an update on the River's Edge tonight (Monday) during their work study session.
