The City of Green Bay retained BetschAssociates to complete a feasibility study for the expansion of the convention center and connection to the adjacent hotel. Many of the existing conventions and meetings had outgrown the original KI Center and were considering holding their meetings in other locations due to the limited size of the building.
The 62,400 square-foot expansion was built over the existing parking lot of the adjacent hotel and Adams Street to preserve the City's street grid. It included a 25,230 square-foot ballroom, river view breakout meeting rooms, expansive pre-function areas connected to the newly renovated Hampton Inn along the Fox River and to the existing KI Convention Center. The project also included complete renovation of the original 19,430 square feet of breakout meeting spaces in the existing building.
