Re: “Will Oakland Arts Organizations Find A Home at the Rehabilitated Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center?

Kent Lewandowski, It's a good question. According to the feasibility study, an additional convention center in Oakland wouldn't bring enough revenue; almost all convention centers in the country operate at a loss, the study says. The report also says the Kaiser fails to meet true convention center criteria, since it doesn't have enough "breakout rooms" and so on.

I'm unclear why convention use is ruled out? With tech companies coming to town, they want and need space to host user conventions. Currently I believe the only space in Oakland is the Marriott Convention center.
