Facilities & Event Management


A-TO-Z

A-TO-Z: FACILITIES & EVENT MANAGEMENT

I love that expression because it exemplifies completeness. Facilities & Event Management is an A-to-Z publication and not just because the products and services featured within these pages are arranged alphabetically — but because they represent everything (or almost everything!) a Venue Manager needs to maximize the success of every event and optimize the experience of every audience member attending each event. Arenas, Stadiums, Theaters, Coliseums, Performing Arts Centers, Convention Centers, Amphitheaters, Special Event Venues — whatever the name or definition of the facility — the fact is that the range of products and services needed to operate the venue, present events, and to create a fun, clean, safe, secure and welcoming atmosphere for attendees both inside and outside the building can be monumental, and to some venue managers, even intimidating. That’s where Facilities & Event Management comes in. The products and services presented are a selection of some of the leading providers and vendors in the industry, as well as a portfolio of just about every category your venue needs. (That’s the A-to-Z). Facilities & Event Management is a tool you can use! From sporting events and athletic competition to concerts and theatrical entertainment — not to mention the range of consumer trade shows and exhibitions — venues have to be flexible enough to accommodate event diversity. Just as importantly, event success requires an enthusiastic audience, an enthusiasm dependent on the experience you, your staff and your venue is able to provide. In order to attain the flexibility so the presentation of every type of event is enhanced, as well as an environment encouraging audience enthusiasm, there is an array of products and services required. Facilities & Event Management is essential as you review your product and service needs and want to know what the market currently has to offer — A-to-Z!

F&EM

The Venue Manager’s Essential Tool!

Last year, The Facilities Media Group re-launched Facilities & Event Management and the response was remarkable. Finally, an accessible, fun-to-read directory tailored to the specific needs of venue managers. This year, we’re introducing another new publication — the Facilities Booking Guide. Of course, readers of this magazine are very aware of the Facilities SuperBook, our annual venue directory mailed to more than 12,000 Booking Agents, Promoters, Talent Buyers and Special Event Planners. the Facilities Booking Guide debuts this summer and features a Venue Directory, a Touring & Concert Support Services Section and interviews with and columns by key industry leaders that will explore trends and the state of the industry. Timothy Herrick The Facilities Booking Guide is a sister publication of the Facilities SuperBook. That’s the big news for all arenas, stadiums, theaters, PAC’s, Amphitheaters and Special Event Venues — Facilities has gone Biannual! Editorial Director The Facilities Media Group continues to evolve with therrick@facilitiesonline.com the industries it serves. Remember to stay updated by visiting www.facilitiesonline.com.

Are You Buying “Egg Shell” Aluminum? “Egg Shell” aluminum is what we call aluminum uprights with an .055" wall thickness.

Oh No!

They are less expensive to buy at first, but it’s a false economy. They will soon tear and have to be replaced. In the long run, you will pay twice.

VenuWorks provides full management services for arenas, theaters, and convention centers. • Professional management • Fiscally responsible • Food and beverage expertise • Booking and event planning professionals • Facility and event marketing

Our competitor is selling .055" aluminum, and calling it .065"

At VenuWorks, we know that every location we serve is unique. That is why we work with community leaders in each of our locations to custom tailor a management plan that will work for them. Behind every theater, arena and convention center ever built, there was a dream and a promise. It is our job to unlock those dreams and fulfill those promises. See Ad Cover 3

Don’t take our word for this, measure the wall thickness of your aluminum. See if you are getting what you are paying for. Crown Industries’ aluminum uprights have true .065 inch wall thickness.
