Brown County, the Village of Ashwaubenon and PMI Entertainment Group celebrated the new $93 million Resch Expo's completion with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Designed by the Kahler Slater + Populous team and built by Miron Construction, the landmark venue represents a bright future for the Village of Ashwaubenon and the entire Green Bay community.
Viewed as a catalyst for economic growth, the new 266,000 square foot Resch Expo is adjacent to the iconic Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, and directly connected to the existing Resch Center arena. The three venues together now form the core of a two-mile entertainment corridor that connects the Packers’ Titletown development on the west with the Village of Ashwaubenon sports and entertainment district and the City of Green Bay’s Legends District to the east.
“This $93 million project is going to wow people. It’s going to complement the development, and it’s going to do exactly what we’re trying to do – attract business expos from the region" said Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach.
Completed on time and on budget, the project was designed and was delivered in just 2 years. “It’s incredible to think about the amount of work that’s been accomplished since we started our very first meeting in November of 2018,” said Kahler Slater Principal-in-Charge Jeff Piette. “To deliver this scale of project with an aggressive timeline has required an experienced, dedicated and complementary team of professionals, all focused on a shared vision of delivering a top-tier, elevated expo experience for Brown County.”
This new, unified entertainment district creates a true destination in the heart of Brown County that will appeal to residents, gameday guests, and out of town visitors and event attendees. A Grand Opening is planned for the community later this summer 2021.
