Soon Anaheim Convention Center visitors will watch the nightly Disneyland fireworks from a 10,000-sf balcony, says a story in The Orange County Register.
A newly expanded wing of the Convention Center is nearly complete. Officials from Visit Anaheim, the city’s marketing and tourism bureau, said the new building dubbed ACC North will officially open on September 26. And it will quickly be put to use.
Some 75 meetings have already been booked including many from the health and medical industry, which in years past may have ignored Anaheim as a host site, said Visit Anaheim President Jay Burress. The Oncology Nursing Society, Society for Science & the Public and International Society for Technology in Education are among the newly booked conventions.
“The addition of ACC North is giving us the opportunity to bring in more diverse events that might not have considered Anaheim,” Burress said. “Ultimately, the increase in event attendees will translate into additional positive economic impact for our local community, adding additional revenue to the city of Anaheim.”
