GM PLACE IN VANCOUVER SETS OUT AN AMBITIOUS AGENDA
Published January 20, 1995
The new GM Place "wants to host the 1997 Canadian Figure Skating Championships and intends to bid on hosting a world championship as early as 2001," according to Terry Bell in this morning's Vancouver PROVINCE. The facility, which next year will be home to the Canucks and the Grizzlies, also wants to attract an ATP indoor event, major curling championships and the Canadian Open, a World Grand Prix badminton tour stop. GM Place Dir of Sales and Event Marketing Sue Griffin: "It's definitely part of our mandate -- we want these events for the city of Vancouver." Griffin says they have a "50-50" chance of attracting the ATP -- for sometime in Fall '96 (Vancouver PROVINCE, 1/20).
