NOVI, Mich. - The Rock Financial Showplace has a new partner and a new name - the Suburban Collection Showplace. The announcement was made at a press conference at the venue today by Blair Bowman, Showplace owner and David T. Fischer, Suburban Collection Chairman and CEO.
The Showplace and Suburban Collection have entered into a new, multi-year, multi-million dollar agreement for exclusive naming rights of the 320,000 square-foot landmark conference and expo center, located on Grand River Avenue, west of Novi Road.
