The Tinley Park Convention Center recently broke ground for a $19 million renovation that will double its current size by May 2011.

The overhaul will add 24,000 square feet of clear-span exhibit space and 9,000 square feet of meeting space. New amenities will include a built-in concession stand, Wi-Fi, new loading docks, a full-service business center, and an additional 450 parking spots.

In a press release, Tinley Park village clerk Patrick Rea estimated that the renovations will bring the area 250 new jobs and $265 million in annual revenue.
