September 16, 2020 – It was announced today that the I-X Center Corporation is ceasing its day-to-day operation of the I-X Center, the host venue for both the Great Big Home + Garden Show (Feb 5-14, 2021) and the Cleveland Home + Remodeling Expo
(Mar 19-21, 2021). Our understanding is the facility is closed until the City of Cleveland, the facility owner, decides how the building will be managed going forward. Tom Baugh, CEO of Marketplace Events who produces the home shows, has been working
with Lou Vitantonio, President of the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association, producer of the Cleveland Auto Show (Feb 26-Mar 7, 2021), and meeting with I-X Center and city officials for more than two years as both show producers
anticipated the possibility of such a decision by the I-X Center Corporation, even prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. We look forward to continuing these conversations with the City and hope an announcement can be made in the weeks ahead that allows
the I-X Center to re-open, assuming all safety-related protocols for COVID-19 are met, in 2021 and beyond. To see more on this story, visit WKYC.com.
