Phoenix Convention Center.

An audit of the Phoenix Convention Center finds 211,000 people attended conferences there last year.

And, while that’s down from 2015, auditors estimate it’s 187,000 more people than would have attended had the Convention Center not undergone its expansion several years ago.

With me to talk about the results is Cynthia Weaver, communications director at the Phoenix Convention Center.
