Leases, agreements, contracts, or subleases, including drafts and unexecuted versions of such documents, for space, usage, or services in any convention center or related facilities owned or operated by a Regional Convention and Visitors Commission, shall not be considered a public record when in the reasonable judgment of the Commission such disclosure may endanger the competitiveness of the business, the prospects of the Commission, or provide an unfair advantage to its competitors.
