  • WINNIPEG HAVING DIFFICULTIES RAISING MONEY FOR ARENA

         The Manitoba Entertainment Complex (MEC) has experienced
    difficulties with their marketing initiative to sell luxury
    suites and club suites for Winnipeg's proposed new entertainment
    and sports complex.  MEC's goal is to raise at least half the
    cost of the C$114M facility with private capital -- through club
    seat and luxury suite sales and deals with concessionaires and
    building sponsors.  MEC Marketing Director Karen Theobald
    explained the low sales on a misconception by the public that the
    arena will have no problem raising the necessary funds: "People
    think the pressure is off in Winnipeg, that this is going to be
    an easy do and that there is no need to hurry."  Theobald said in
    order to stimulate sales the marketing effort will begin to focus
    on club seats (WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 10/29).
