The Board of Directors of the East Montgomery County Improvement District (EMCID) is exceptionally pleased to announce a proposed 200,000 sq. ft. conference and events center, which is expected to have a nearly $1.73 billion economic impact over the next 30 years.

Proposed to be located in the Valley Ranch Town Center’s Entertainment District, the facility, designed by Helman Hurley Charvat Peacock/Architects, Inc. (HHCP), will feature a 55,000 sq. ft. ballroom/exhibit hall and nearly 20,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, large enough to hold major corporate events, trade shows, local and regional youth sporting events, consumer shows, galas, wedding receptions, proms and other private events.

The I-69/Grand Parkway corridor is absent of many key services that have held back our community’s growth for decades. Today, retail has come a long way, as has industrial. The Grand Parkway has made us accessible for many outside our backyard. A part of our focus is expanding our impact at EMCID by helping attract major corporate relocations, employers that will bring high paying jobs, and increase our ‘day-time traffic population’ which drives sales tax and success throughout our region,” stated Frank McCrady, EMCID President andamp; CEO. “The idea is to create the critical pieces that make the greater Porter/New Caney area a destination for many, but more importantly, a place where locally all can work, shop, play, and even graduate at home! We should be at the top of the list of major employment relocations, and this investment will certainly help move the needle.”

Through newer design technology and equipment, the facility spaces are very flexible and easily transitioned to accommodate a multitude of events large and small. As designed, the exhibit hall will be able to hold more than 6,000 attendees for special gatherings and events and can also be divided into smaller rooms. Two signature meeting rooms take advantage of spectacular views to the west, south, and east of the future entertainment district and a terrace overlooking green space. The center includes approximately 25,000 sq. ft. of pre-function and lobby space and outdoor courtyards.

The plans also include space for a future full-service conference hotel to connect to the conference center and an attached multi-level parking garage.
