Don’t refer to the convention center as the TD Convention Center any longer.  That name officially expired 8 months ago.  But the signage was not changed until a new name could be announced, and that was today. 

The city says the facility is now known as the Greenville Convention Center.  

Mayor Knox White says that placing the city’s name on one of the state’s largest venues is another opportunity to build the town’s brand and there’s no worry about changing the name again when a contract expires. 

Greenville's convention center was downtown at first and known as Textile Hall and was privately owned.  When it was relocated to it's current location off Pleasentburg Drive, it was renamed New Textile Hall.  Then, ion 1993, it was called the Palmetto Expo Center. The City of Greenville purchased the facility in 2001 and in 2007 the naming rights went to Carolina First Bank.  After TD Bank bought Carolina First Bank, they inherited the contract and the name changed from Carolina First Convention Center to the TD Convention Center in 2011.

The City of Greenville recently invested about $2 million for a facelift of meeting rooms and to improve the parking lots.  Another $1.35 million is budgeted for more capital improvements over the next year.
