Hyatt General Manager Phil Tufano looks on as Jim Love of State Farm Insurance wears a St. Patrick’s Day Jester cap at the March 2 Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce Downtown Council meeting. Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra’s Bill Cosnotti won the cap as a door prize.
Tufano spoke at the meeting, saying results of destination studies commissioned by the Convention Center Task Force he is a part of have started to trickle in.
“It looks now, from the preliminary reports we’ve gotten, that these will be positive reports about our destination,” Tufano told council members.
The task force is studying the possibility of a new or expanded convention center in Jacksonville.
