Statement From Cobo Center's Naming Rights Media Conference
The Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority’s selection of Chemical Bank represents the Convention Center’s strong financial future and a legislative mandate to become a self-sustaining facility by 2024; saving Michigan taxpayers millions of dollars.
As is the case with other world-class facilities that have been named in Detroit – Ford Field, Comerica Park, and LCA – the ability to name the facility belongs to the organization that purchases that right.
The naming rights initiative for the Convention Center has been a longtime goal of the DRCFA. Our fiduciary responsibility was to sell the naming rights to a corporation. That was our process and it is now a contractual commitment.
Larry Alexander, Chairman
Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority
