The name for the facility in the development stages was the Bettendorf Events Center. A ground breaking ceremony for the center was held on October 6, 2006. Construction was delayed in late 2006 because the project was $2 million over budget and the Isle of Capri, who was to operate the facility for the city, was completing a marketing study. Once construction got underway it was completed in early 2009.
The facility contains 24,000 sq ft (2,200 m2) of space, which includes a 15,000 sq ft (1,400 m2) ballroom and eight private meeting rooms. The convention center is owned by the city of Bettendorf and is operated by the Isle of Capri Casino & Hotel, which is connected by way of a skywalk.
