MANITOBA ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX REACHES THEIR GOAL
Published December 8, 1994
This morning, the Manitoba Entertainment Complex Inc., will announce that it has "nearly reached its marketing goals and plans for a new arena in Winnipeg is moving ahead quickly." MEC spokesperson John Leowen refused to say how many club seats have been sold in the five weeks since the marketing program began, but sources at MEC put the number at around 1,200. The goal was 1,500, but MEC member Bob Silver said the group "raised far more money than they had projected before the marketing project had begun." MEC still needs to meet with the city on a proposed site. Loewen said the group preferred the Forks, a sight just outside the city, but could live with a downtown location (Scott Taylor, WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 12/8).
