It's been five years since tourism officials in Beaufort on the South Carolina coast first suggested the idea of building a large conference center.
Now they are looking at nine potential sites and The Beaufort Gazette reports a Thursday meeting is being held to review them.
Officials have proposed a 25,000- to 50,000-square-foot center. They say it could host Marine Corps reunions, weddings and high school graduations and other conferences.
Officials say ideally the center would seat 1,000. The largest hotel in Beaufort now only has space to seat 250 although the area has about 1,300 rental rooms.
