Ribbon cut at Cleveland's biomedical expo site Global Center for Health Innovation

CLEVELAND - Cleveland's mayor led civic leaders at a celebration of a major new downtown project.

The medical trade exposition hall is part of a $465 million project that includes a newly opened convention center next door.

Mayor Frank Jackson, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald and leaders of the city's medical research industry were on hand for Tuesday's ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The expo center has been named the Global Center for Health Innovation and was financed with a tax increase.

Next week the center will host its first major event, the Cleveland Clinic's three-day Medical Innovation Summit.
Two more phases of the expo center are scheduled to be finished next year. Several companies with links to the medical field already signed on to be tenants at the center.
