Highlighting economic development in Novi
October 2019
From Novi Expo Center to the
Suburban Collection Showplace
The City of Novi is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and each month we are releasing a new video highlighting a part of Novi's history. This ninth video highlights how the Suburban Collection Showplace came to be, from its start as the Novi Expo Center to now one of the largest privately-funded conference, convention and exposition centers in the nation.

We are still looking for businesses to be featured on Business Avenue. If you want to be featured on an upcoming episode that airs on Novi Television, YouTube and cityofnovi.org, shoot us an email at novibusiness@cityofnovi.org to set up a time that works for you. Our Studio No.VI team will do the rest!
