First New Evansville Hotel Convention Delayed

The first convention planned for the new downtown Evansville hotel will be delayed.

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.
