The state said Wednesday that it's seeking a private company to book events at the fairgrounds and its planned expo center starting next summer.

Construction of the 136,000-square-foot expo center is expected to begin this month.

The state's request for proposals seeks a contractor that would book at least 20 events in the expo center by the end of 2019. Three of those events would also have to use other fairground facilities.
