Over 2.2 million people have attended events hosted at the facility and over 3,500 events have been hosted since its opening in 2005. With the collaboration of the City of St. Charles, St. Charles County Convention & Sports Authority, and St. Charles Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Convention Center continues to achieve goals and break records year over year.
“We are grateful to our clients, community partners, sponsors, and employees for all they do, making the St. Charles Convention Center a first-rate facility,” said Global Spectrum’s Shura Garnett, General Manager and Regional Vice President at the St. Charles Convention Center. “It seemed only fitting after 10 years of hard work, to celebrate with them in a big way, showcasing our venue and all that it offers.”
The Convention Center celebrated their anniversary Thursday, April 9th with a ribbon cutting ceremony and upscale, invitation-only 10 Year Anniversary Party. The event featured a plethora of food and unique entertainment.
“What an absolute delight to participate in the 10th anniversary celebration of the Saint Charles Convention Center,” said Mayor Sally Faith. “In addition to the ribbon-cutting ceremony with the St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce, it was fantastic to see such widespread support from the community,” she said. “Shura Garnett and her staff members ‘wowed’ the crowd with the type of upscale reception we have grown to expect here in St. Charles. They have once again raised the bar and showcased why our local facility remains a leader in the convention and meeting industry. Congratulations to everyone involved for a job well done, and much continued success in the decade ahead!”
