Cobo Center



Cobo Center is one of the largest convention centers in the nation.  Built by the City of Detroit, it was originally opened in 1960 and named Cobo Hall in honor of former Detroit Mayor Albert E. Cobo (1950-1957).  Today, Cobo Center is managed and operated by the Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority (DRCFA).  The five-member Authority Board consists of one representative from each of five government agencies - the City of Detroit, State of Michigan and the three metro-Detroit counties of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb.  The DRCFA is currently overseeing a $299 million expansion and upgrade of Cobo Center that is scheduled for completion in January 2015.
