The Empire Expo Center is an exhibition ground located in Geddes, New York, outside of Syracuse, New York. It features eight exhibition halls and 375 (1.5 km²) acres of ground space, which are used year-round for exhibitions and trade fairs. Its major annual event is the Great New York State Fair which draws approximately one million visitors during its twelve day run, and the entire complex is often referred to as the Fairgrounds. Its name comes from the nickname of New York State, "the Empire State." The State Fair Coliseum located within the Empire Expo Center was the original home of the Syracuse Nationals(now Philadelphia 76ers) professional basketball team.
The facility was host to the 2010 Mirabito Outdoor Classic on February 20, 2010 between the Syracuse Crunch and the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League. Additional games were held in the days prior and after the event by youth teams from the area.
