CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- Marketing for the new Cedar Rapids Convention Complex has officially begun, even though the facility is years away from opening.

Thursday the Cedar Rapids Visitor's Bureau unveiled its 2011 city guide, with the focus on the large complex.

The Visitors Bureau is looking to find new business to book space at the new site.  Mayor Ron Corbett says he hopes the new facility will attract double the amount of visitors to the city.

"It will be a signature building and a signature attraction, not just in Cedar Rapids, but in the corridor," he said.

The new Cedar Rapids Convention Complex is scheduled to open in 2013.
