The naming rights sponsor of Detroits Cobo Center, Chemical Bank, has merged with TCF Bank. As part of the merger, TCF Bank announced the renaming of Detroit's convention center to TCF Center. "It is an exciting time for the venue and city", said Claude Molinari, general manager SMG/TCF Center. "This naming rights contract will help develop more business for the facility, which will mean more jobs for local residents. Providing jobs is critically important to our mission." The Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority (DRCFA) is proud to have TCF Bank as a partner for the naming rights of this world-class convention centre in Detroit. "The naming announcement gives us all an important message: that public-private partnerships work," said Larry Alexander, chairman of the DRCFA and president of the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau. "We continue to dedicate ourselves to serving the customers of this great centre and to the rebuilding of a truly great American city."
