Grand Opening in Grand Rapids

The $211 million DeVos Place convention center opened its doors in December, encompassing a total area of one million square feet in the heart of Grand Rapids, Mich. The 162,000-square-foot exhibition hall is the size of three football fields, making it the second-largest convention facility in Michigan. The center's 40,000-square-foot ballroom, to be completed in early 2005, will seat 3,250 people for banquets.
