LINCOLN–(KFOR Dec. 1)–The new sign is up at 84th and Havelock for the Sandhills Global Event Center, where a ribbon-cutting took place Friday morning.

Sandhills Global outreach coordinator Jim Hansen tells KFOR News their ag-based platforms are compatible with what the event center offers, such as machinery trader and expos. A ribbon-cutting for the new name also kicked off a $10 million Fairgrounds Infrastructure Modernization project through 2026 that was recently was awarded a $5 million State Shovel Ready Grant.

Sandhills purchased the naming rights to the Event Center earlier this year.
