Frenck Lick Resort broke ground Monday on a new expansion to connect the conference and events center.

Groundbreaking ceremonies were held Monday to mark the start of a $15 million expansion at the French Lick Resort.

The expansion, which is expected to open in January 2015, will connect to the resort’s existing conference and event center.

The Herald-Times reports the construction will total more than 58,000 square feet, adding to the current 109,000-square-foot conference and event center.

“It opens up a whole new group of companies that we can serve,” said Steve Ferguson, chairman of French Lick Resort’s parent company, Bloomington-based Cook Group.

“It also allows us to have two different groups at the same time,” he said. “It’s a tremendous opportunity.”

The event center expansion will include eight breakout rooms and a 22,000-square-foot ballroom. The ballroom will include three sections so it can be configured in different ways.
