The Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority (DRCFA) has decided to renew the SMG contract to manage facility operations of Cobo Center through 2022. "Our partnership with SMG has been extremely beneficial to Cobo Center and the Metro Detroit Region," said Larry Alexander, chairman of the DRCFA. On October 1, 2010, the DRCFA entered into a three-year management agreement with SMG that included three, three-year options to renew at the discretion of the board. The contract was first extended in 2013 and later in 2016. SMG is currently in the final year of the second three-year extension.
