Gov. Brian Kemp will be in Savannah on Wednesday to officially break ground on the expansion of the Savannah Convention Center. The ceremony will take place at 3:30 p.m. at the Center. The $271 million dollar expansion project will double the current exhibit hall space to 200,000 square feet, add a 58-foot-wide glass hangar door, construct a 40,000 square foot ballroom, add 15 additional meeting rooms, and a 900-space on-site parking garage. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2023. The new additions will make the Savannah Convention Center capable of accommodating larger, more complex events and conventions in Savannah. The expanded Convention Center will be the 72nd largest convention center in the country moving up from 153rd largest currently.
