“We are back!”

That is how Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego kicked off a June 17 ceremony ahead of the first convention held at the city-owned Phoenix Convention Center since the Covid-19 pandemic.

The convention was held by the American Dental Hygienists’ Association and was expected to bring in between 800 and 850 people to the city over the weekend.
