The Appalachian Regional Exposition Center is underway!


We are excited to announce that completion of the APEX is anticipated to be in November of 2018.

This aerial shot on the progress of the Appalachian Exposition Center was taken in the middle of March, and really puts into perspective how it will not only put Wythe County on the map throughout the region, but also bring the community together for a fun and family friendly time.



In the above photos the west side is ahead in the race while having some part of the roof attached and most of the siding done. However, since this photo was taken there has been major gains in progress on the west side. William Vaughan, Wythe Counties County Engineer, has shared the progress with us on the west side of the APEX, as well as some of the progress on the East side, as of April 13, 2018.

•    The remaining of the west lean-to is under the roof.
•    Below slab sewer installed.
•    Floor deck installed.
•    Roofing/Insulation Installed
•    West lean-to wall complete.
•    Wall studs being erected.
•    HVAC work is underway.
•    Hallway lighting is in place.
•    The west stem wall completed
•    The doors are framed in.

What about the East side? We do not have a picture of the progress on the East side of the building, however, there has been progress. The lean-to slab was placed on April 11th, and the block wall is nearing completion.

Pictured below, we have the east corner closest to Wytheville being rounded off by the masons, and it’s only a couple hundred more feet to go. This picture gives us an idea of how big this building is going to be and already is.
