Phoenix Convention Center, Arizona’s premier meetings and events facility, will welcome a new executive director.
John Chan will manage more than 250 employees with an operating budget of $47 million. He was a previous director of the Phoenix Convention Center from mid-2009 to late-2011.
Then, under Chan’s tenure, the Phoenix Convention Center hosted the National Rifle Association annual meeting, the U.S. Greenbuild Annual Conference & Expo and the MLB All-Star Fan Fest.
Chan was named 2009 Economic Developer of the Year by the Arizona Association of Economic Development. While under Chan’s leadership, the Downtown Development Office also received a 2009 DREAMER award from the Downtown Phoenix Partnership and an Outstanding Organization Award for being the driving force behind development in downtown Phoenix.
Next year, Phoenix Convention Center will serve as the host site for the 2015 Super Bowl Media Headquarters and NFL Experience.
