That convention center is not making money nor will it. Why would anyone want to book a convention in Wilmington? Because it's on the Cape Fear River lined with fuel tanks, a State Port, a view of the smoke stacks of Sutton Steam Plant, WW II Battleship, chemical plants up river, miles from the ocean at Wrightsville and Carolina beaches, Historic Downtown with a few overpriced shops, restaurants and bars with a drunken college crowd that take over after the sun goes down?
Myrtle Beach is only an hour or so away with a convention center closer to the ocean, House of Blues, on the waterway...and it is even losing money.
