The new convention center, which is under construction on the north side of downtown, is not technically taking reservations, so there’s nothing booked yet.
The city is holding dates for certain parties, according to Steve Bridges, an assistant city manager for development for the city of Wilmington, but is not actually taking bookings at this time because no contracts have been signed. Also, the city wants to have a firm opening date before reservations are taken.
As for music at the convention center, “there are ways of making it happen if someone wants to do a concert there,” Bridges said. “But it’s not being built as a concert hall.”
None of the dates held so far are for musical acts, Bridges said.
