If you’ve been going to the Detroit Auto Show over the years, you know that Cobo Center has undergone an enormous transformation. A $279-million dollar multi-year renovation is nearing its end. Inside, the changes have included new uses for the former Cobo Hall, the former home of the Detroit Pistons and numerous rock concerts. Fixing Cobo up was crucial to keeping the Auto Show in Detroit, but lots of other convention business is heading to the Motor City as a result.

Current State’s Scott Pohl checks in with the general manager of Cobo Center, Thom Connors, for an update.
