Bowman had previously owned another convention center, the Novi Expo Center, which he had actually purchased and renovated as a convention center in 1991.
The original naming deal was with Quicken Loans, which was formerly referred to as “Rock Financial.” Quicken, later on, revealed more interest in using its existing name, which was nationally understood, instead of “Rock Financial,” which was just understood around Metro Detroit. Bowman rather terminated the initial naming offer. The center was renamed in 2010 after an automobile dealer group headquartered in Troy.
Presently the center has 340,000 square feet (32,000 m2) of exhibition and convention area. The center originally had 320,000 square feet (30,000 m2) of area, making it the third-largest convention center in Southeast Michigan and METRO Detroit. To accommodate the state fair’s awaited growth, Bowman made several land purchases since 2012, totaling 43-acre (17 ha) of space, including a plot of land throughout Grand River Avenue and a 30-acre (12 ha) lot to the west.
