Fairplex officially opened its high-tech Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center
on March 14. The new center is I.A.C.C.-certified and Silver LEED-engineered. The project was funded by $28 million raised in conjunction with the Economic Development Administration, Small Business Administration, county of Los Angeles, and city of Pomona, resulting in more than $155.6 million in economic impact during construction. The new 85,000-square-foot center is intended to be a highly versatile space, with spacious seminar rooms and breakout rooms with interactive digital whiteboards, video conferencing, and high-speed Wi-Fi. Catering options at the space, which includes a ballroom with a capacity of 1,000 seated for a meal, include fresh farm-to-table produce grown at the on-campus FairView Farms.
