Summary

The first phase of this project explored the feasibility of constructing a conference/convention center and/or sports tourism and event space within the City of Tuscaloosa. Examples of events that could be hosted in spaces like these include conferences, conventions, trade shows, athletics, performances, corporate and civic outings, and a variety of other events. 


The feasibility study evaluated existing and projected future demand for a facility, evaluated the appropriate size of any recommended facilities, identified the best location(s), recommended partnering strategies, determined project capital and operating costs, and assessed the impact of any recommended facilities on the local economy. The results of the feasibility study will be used to determine future project phases.
