DETROIT (AP) - The president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings is the featured speaker at a Wayne State University lecture about “Investing in Detroit.”

Christopher Ilitch is to speak Wednesday at the event at the Detroit school.

The Detroit Red Wings are part of Mike Ilitch’s stable of companies. Officials in September held a groundbreaking for a new 18,000-seat hockey arena for the team and a 45-block entertainment district in Detroit. The new arena is expected to open in 2017.

During the Wayne State event, Mike Ilitch’s son is expected to discuss the family’s vision for the mixed-use sports and entertainment district.
