Owner of Expo Center gets another gig

Ballantine Management Group, which owns and operates the Fredericksburg Expo and Conference Center, was selected this week to coordinate events at the Bayside Expo Center in the Boston area.

The Boston center closed this spring after falling into foreclosure. The new owner tapped Ballantine owner Tom Ballantine, Bayside’s former executive director, to help bring events to the facility.

Tom Ballantine said the new role may allow his company to hire a few more people, and it could build his network of contacts, which might help the Fredericksburg center land conventions. But day-to-day operations at the Fredericksburg Expo Center won’t change.
