That’s because after Game 6, Thursday night, work began almost immediately on a monumental task: transform the Q from a sports arena into a convention hall in just a matter of weeks.
Two hundred and fifty workers, including contractors, stage hands and lighting technicians, will be at the arena on a daily basis leading up to the start of the convention on July 18, and they will sometimes work around-the-clock.
Visitors will notice changes tonight, and the arena floor will be a construction zone.
