Location: Kearney | Owner: Buffalo County Fair Board | Size: 106,000 sf
Solution: After the 2008 tornado destroyed the existing 20-year-old Expo building, WilkinsADP worked with the fair board to obtain FEMA funding for the reconstruction. After extensive documentation and presentation to FEMA, funding was secured. The reconstruction allowed the fair to meet the current, more demanding needs of fair events: Acoustics, expanded electrical requirements, demanding HVAC comfort and the needs of concerts and trade shows were all taken into consideration. For events requiring seating, there are 2,600 fixed seats and the ability to provide up to 4,000 seats on the floor for events.
