KENNEWICK, WA - As the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick celebrates its big 10 year anniversary, a construction project on the campus aims to make the next 10 years even bigger.

"We're creeping up on about 1.1 million people that we've had through the facility now in the last 10 years. Every year we've gotten stronger and stronger and we do try to bring first and foremost, people from outside the community," explained Corey Pearson, the Executive Director at the convention center.  "We're looking at our future growth plans to be able to accommodate them and keep them for years to come, because we really are an economic driver for this community and we want to maintain that position."

With the completion of the new attached hotel expected late this year, the convention center hopes to see even more of those visitors come visit our area and spend a little money while they are here. Right when you walk into the new facility there will even be a new lounge area in the hotel that anyone can come enjoy. The convention center may be 10 years older, but its upgrades are expected to have it looking like new as they head into their next decade.
