IUP celebrates community, teamwork at Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex opening

March 4, 2011

INDIANA — If the new Kovalchick Convention & Athletic Complex has a goal of bringing people from around the region to Indiana for athletic, entertainment and business purposes, its dedication ceremony bore a resemblance to what guests could see in the future.

The official grand opening of the $79 million, 150,000-square foot KCAC Friday included references to a classic film and even an impromptu, a cappella version of a Frank Sinatra standard by a state senator.

IUP, KCAC look to serve as a regional presence in Indiana

March 4, 2011

INDIANA — It’s a good thing that officials from IUP and the Kovalchick Convention & Athletics Complex (KCAC) officially dedicated the $79 million, 150,000-square foot building Friday, because the first ticketed event, the Harlem Globetrotters, will hit the floor of the Ed Fry Arena next Friday.

Amy White, the KCAC’s director of marketing, said the goal of the complex is to bring different kinds of events — big-name, family-oriented shows and concerts — to the Indiana area, and help people avoid longer trips to Pittsburgh, Altoona or State College, for example.
