Bring your Convention Home!!
Bring Your Convention Home!
With the addition of the new HOLTHUS CONVENTION CENTER, York will soon be able to attract larger meetings, conventions, trade shows, exhibits and receptions to town. When more delegates come to town, they tend to spend a lot of money—so the more conventions we can get to come to York, the better for all of us.
How can you help? Many of us belong to associations, clubs and groups who meet at conventions. If you can provide some basic information to us on your group—we’ll take it from there. Just simply contact us and we’ll make the contact and hopefully negotiate a meeting or convention to come to town—whether it’s at the new center or one of our existing facilities.
Holthus Convention Center coming soon!
Over the next year, a new $6 million dollar Convention Center will be built to accommodate meetings, conventions, trade shows, receptions and weddings of most size right here in York. The new HOLTHUS CONVENTION CENTER is scheduled to open late summer of 2014. Located near the busy I-80/Highway 81 exchange, the new center will be within 5 blocks of over 600 hotel rooms. The Chamber of Commerce will serve as the sales contact to book meetings, conventions, weddings and trade shows for the new center. A new YORK COUNTY MEETING PLANNERS GUIDE is being developed that will showcase ALL of York County's meeting facilities.
