State Conventions Booked for Next Year
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Cedar Rapids will host two state conventions next year.
According to the Cedar Rapids Area Convention and Visitors Bureau the first will happen in April 2015 and the second in November.
Combined, the two will generate more than 500 overnight stays at the Double Tree by Hilton.
The April convention alone will bring in over 40,000 dollars of direct spending.
According to organizers that booked the events, they've seen more and more conventions in the area since the renovations at the U.S. Cellular Center wrapped up last year.
They expect that same trend to continue throughout this year and next.
