The first convention planned for the new downtown Evansville hotel will be delayed. The delay is a result of Dunn Hospitality’s request earlier this year that Hilton withdraw its franchise agreement with the facility.

Hilton is sending a marketing analysis team to Evansville to make a decision on the challenge, but it will not be made soon enough to keep the center’s first scheduled convention in September 2015.

In a statement, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke said the convention will be rescheduled to 2016.
