WINNIPEG – Big changes are coming to Red River Exhibition Park.
CEO Garth Rogerson will be at city hall this evening, to present a major expansion plan to the Assiniboia Community Committee.
Rogerson says work has been ongoing over the past seven years to turn the park into a world class facility both for the public and for trade shows.
“Winnipeg is one of the only cities in North America that doesn’t have an agiricultural trade show facility. All these shows are going right past us to Saskatoon, Regina, Toronto…we’re just missing the boat on all this business.”
Rogerson says the completed expansion would also include a retail centre, office park and hotels. He expects it can bring an extra 100 million dollars into the Winnipeg economy.
