Mohegan Sun Expo Center to open summer 2018

Leaders of the Mohegan Tribe and Mohegan Sun gathered Thursday afternoon at the flagship property in Connecticut to announce the official plans for The Mohegan Sun Expo Center. Construction is underway with a target opening date of summer 2018. The expansion will span over 240,000 square feet and will be located by the Winter Parking garage and in close proximity to Mohegan Sun's newest hotel, Earth Tower. The New York-based architect firm KPF (Kohn Pedersen Fox) and the construction team out of North Stonington, A/Z Corp, are partners on the project.

The Exposition and Convention Center is expected to attract more corporate and association trade shows, in addition to exhibitions such as Barrett-Jackson and the National Association of Postal Supervisors. It gives Mohegan Sun a great opportunity to also expand current consumer-geared shows, like Terrificon, and bring about tech industry shows, golf shows, musical extravaganzas, home shows, motor sports and hunting and fishing shows. One of the first partnerships announced today by Assistant General Manager, Jeff Hamilton, is with United Natural Foods Inc (UNFI), as he alluded to a full-scale food show already in early planning stages for next year.

Mohegan Tribal Chairman Kevin Brown, speaking at the event, touched on more exciting partnerships to come and further positive impacts that the Expo Center will soon have for southeastern Connecticut.
