Jekyll Island's new convention center exceeding expectations

Posted: Updated:
JEKYLL ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

On Saturday, Jekyll Island officials said business is exceeding expectations at the state park's new convention center.

The new beachfront meeting space hosted 35 events since opening in May.

Georgia taxpayers paid $50 million for the 128,000 square-foot convention center, the centerpiece of a revitalization effort to turn around state-owned Jekyll Island's slumping tourism and convention business.
