Category Archives: 4/8/15: Amy Dickerson – Lancaster Event Center

4/8 Speaker: Amy Dickerson, Managing Director – Lancaster Event Center

Amy provided a nice overview of the Lancaster Event Center, which is a non-profit organization that has been in operation for 15 years.  She said they have about 250 events each year and are starting to outgrow their present buildings.  Amy said they are looking to possibly expand by building a fixed-seat building that would accommodate 3500-5000 people.

Coming up on July 30th – August 8th will be the Lancaster County Super Fair.  Amy told us that the Super Fair attracts nearly 200,000 people.
