New Space in Convention Center Unveiled
A ribbon cutting was held at the Sioux City Convention Center on Friday, November 22, to celebrate the completion of a new addition and renovations made to Gallery C. More than $3 million in renovations will now offer more flexible space for events with enhanced ballroom amenities and convenient restrooms.
Construction began in the fall of 2018 to include a new pre-function space located outside of Gallery C along with a new entrance, providing a direct connection to the Promenade Plaza, Historic 4th Street District, and a new Convention Center hotel. The adjacent 150-room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel is nearing completion and will include full service amenities, with a bistro, bar, business and exercise center to accommodate community functions, social events, business, and conventions. The Sioux City Convention Center and new Courtyard by Marriott Hotel is managed by Kinseth Hospitality Companies.
The Sioux City Convention Center is an important civic amenity to the community and has hosted thousands of events since it was built in 1988. The new space will help market the facility and draw additional events, resulting in additional hotel/motel and sales taxes.
"We have enjoyed our partnership with the City of Sioux City while operating the Convention Center,” said Bruce Kinseth, Kinseth Hospitality Executive Vice President. The work to the facility is a great benefit to the entire city. We look forward to continuing our partnership and creating memorable experiences for all of our guests."
This project builds upon recent downtown momentum provided by the reconstruction of Interstate 29, stockyards revitalization, enhancements to the riverfront, and the ongoing development of new housing, historic districts and unique amenities.
