CLEVELAND'S INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION CENTER NAMES NEW GENERAL MANAGER

 CLEVELAND, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Park Corporation has named Kevin Scheiferstein as executive vice president and general manager of the company's International Exposition Center.
 Scheiferstein, 36, who has been a corporate vice president, will assume responsibilities for day-to-day operations of the I-X Center, whose trade shows and attendance have grown substantially in recent years.
 "Kevin has expertise in operations and finance," said Patrick M. Park, president of the I-X Center. "His filling the general manager's vacancy will give me the opportunity to spend more time in other aspects of our company."
 Scheiferstein joined the Park Corporation in 1990. He has had varied responsibilities in finance and operations, including acquisitions. Prior to joining Park Corporation, Scheiferstein was a senior manager with the professional services firm of Ernst & Young in Cleveland.
 "I look forward to continuing the momentum of the I-X Center with respect to its becoming the best facility of its kind in the nation," said Scheiferstein.
 Scheiferstein was graduated from the University of Akron in 1979 with a degree in accounting. He also holds an M.B.A. from Cleveland State University.
 Scheiferstein and his wife, Jennifer, have two daughters, Molly and Katie, and live in Amherst in Lorain County.
 With the appointment of Scheiferstein, Park will increasingly focus on his duties as a Park Corporation officer and director. This includes development of the company's growing international business.
 The Cleveland-based, privately held Park Corporation has diverse subsidiaries and divisions involved in manufacturing and the redevelopment and management of industrial and commercial real estate.
 In 1977, the Park Corporation purchased what was then a shuttered World War II military bomber and tank plant and converted it into the International Exposition Center. With 2.5 million square feet under its roof, including the 800,000-square-foot Main Floor, the I-X Center has become one of the best, if not the best, facilities of its kind in the nation.
 The I-X is situated on more than 200 acres near the interchange of Interstates 71 and 480, adjacent to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The I-X has parking spaces for 10,000 to 12,000 vehicles.
 Each year the I-X Center hosts over 2.5 million visitors and 150 shows, including the country's largest home and garden show, largest indoor amusement park, biggest indoor boat show, and second largest auto show.
 For the first six months of 1993, overall attendance reached 1.5 million, a 10 percent increase over the same period last year.
 The I-X Center recently completed a $6.5-million expansion of its facilities, including the I-X Jet Center, a full-service private and corporate aviation terminal abutting Hopkins Airport.
