There were some questions regarding the fitness of Cobo Center as the host venue for the NAIAS. They have now been quelled, thanks to a number of renovations undertaken by Cobo Center’s staff.
Six projects were targeted for completion before this year’s show is to commence, priced at roughly $3 million. Cobo’s notorious roof leaks and electrical circuitry have been addressed as well as some other minor issues, according to Gary Brown, chief construction officer for the Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority.
Other work included repairs on the fire system, compressor system, and leaking floor boxes that provide water for the cooling system. Less crucial, however, is a major repair to the CCTV system, which should also be complete come showtime.
