State fair seeks to maximize use of planned expo centre

Last Updated Dec 7, 2017 at 12:20 am EST

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse could end up hosting more events year-round.

The state said Wednesday that it’s seeking a private company to book events at the fairgrounds and its planned expo centre starting next summer.

Construction of the 136,000-square-foot expo centre is expected to begin this month.

The state’s request for proposals seeks a contractor that would book at least 20 events in the expo centre by the end of 2019. Three of those events would also have to use other fairground facilities.
