Plano Centre is arguably one of the best meeting and event venues in the state of Texas and is now under the leadership of new general manager Mark Jarrell. The recent GM appointee joins Plano Centre from Fair Park in Dallas, where he served for nine years as senior park manager.
“Mark is a tremendous addition to our staff,” said Amy Fortenberry, Director of City of Plano Parks & Recreation. “His leadership during the renovation stage of Plano Centre will be invaluable. And, Mark will help the facility continue to deliver the exemplary service to our constituents that we have been known for in the past.”
Jarrell coordinated and managed the $72 million revitalization bond package at Fair Park for construction, restoration and conservation of a National Historic Landmark. Prior to his appointment at Fair Park in Dallas, Jarrell served as Financial Services Manager at Dallas Convention Center.

The exhibition hall offers 21,600 square feet of column-free, completely carpeted exhibition space and a professional master stage. In addition, 17 different break-out rooms are available.
