What is the economic and cultural value of the convention industry for a struggling mid-sized city like Buffalo, NY? What needs to be considered in choosing a location for a new convention facility? How should we design such a facility to enhance, rather than damage, the urban fabric of a downtown district? Industry specialists, designers, downtown business people, and concerned citizens tackle these issues in a lively forum sponsored by Working for Downtown.
