BINGHAMTON — The 2008 Empire State Games have officially concluded, as executive director Fred Smith just presided over the closing press conference here at Binghamton University.
"We couldn't be more pleased about our event here in Binghamton this year," said Smith, seen here at right, next to local organizers.
Not that the work is over.
Smith and ESG officials will hold a press conference later this week at Marist College, when they'll unveil the logo for next year's Games, which will be centered at our area.
“I’ve got a meeting down there Wednesday,” he said. “I’ve already had meetings with folks in Hudson Valley. … The work starts easily two years in advance, sometimes more.”
