Management and support of Convention Centers is one of SMG's specialities. Here are some quick Convention Center facts:
- SMG operates 98% of the publicly-owned exhibition space operated by private companies in North America.
- The convention and exhibition facilities currently managed by SMG include more than 10 million square feet of space
- The facilities range in size from 30,000 square foot exhibit halls, to the 2,000,000 plus square feet of McCormick Place in Chicago.
- More than 30 million people attended thousands of convention and exhibition events at our facilities last year.
- These included shows of all shapes and sizes: consumer shows, trade shows, conventions, corporate meetings, product launches and other special events.
SMG's Convention Center Division not only facilitates these events, but also helps the facilities attract more shows through our day-to-day industry relationships. We work closely with the Hotel Industry, Convention and Visitor Bureaus, Industry Vendors/Suppliers, as well as Labor Unions to facilitate the event and deliver the best possible environment for your convention or trade show.
