Sports and Entertainment Booking
The Sports and Entertainment Booking Division exists solely to provide event activity for SMG facilities. SMG Sports and Entertainment Division maintains a daily dialog with the entertainment industry which results in enhanced programming opportunities.
Our ability to secure new and distinctive events through our combination of size (more than 1.5 million seats managed), resources and partnerships can be a key element for the future success of any entertainment facility.
One-third of the 10,000 annual events at our facilities were the direct result of influence by either our corporate office or the power vested in our general managers by the SMG network. SMG facilities have hosted most of the significant events of our day. We are experienced in planning and executing high profile activities.
Booking/Scheduling of Events - smgbooking.com
SMG was the first in the industry to be nationally recognized for its innovative approach to event booking. The large number of venues under SMG’s management ensures involvement in the booking process long before these opportunities are available to non-affiliated buildings. SMG-affiliated buildings have access to the SMG-proprietary booking system (smgbooking.com).
Event Development and Management
SMG conceives, develops, produces and promotes a wide variety of entertainment attractions and special events to fill available dates within a facility’s traditional schedule of activities. SMG enjoys excellent relationships within the industry among booking agents, artist management, major performing art agencies and local, regional and national promoters, international family shows and major performing arts agencies.
