Boston Convention Center Now Allowing "Boat Shows"


The Boston Business Journal has an article about the effects of the BCEC allowing exposition shows: Bayside by the Wayside.

Originally, when the Convention Center was created, Boat Shows and other events which draw significant numbers of ticket-buying patrons were strictly forbidden. This was to limit the traffic and noise impact on South Boston, as conference goers usually don't drive in.

Last year, Romney signed a bill which changed this and now the BCEC is allowed to have these kinds of shows. The neighborhood was sent a notice about this and it slipped under our radar. If someone finds more details on the bill, please follow this up with a comment or email the FPNA at: fpna@dewdrops.net.
