"SMG, the management company that runs the (New Orleans) Arena and the Superdome is the best of its type with a skill at maintaining the facility and attracting events to it. SMG officials played a major role in attracting the Hornets to New Orleans."
from New Orleans Magazine, July 2009
SMG, the world leader in venue management, marketing and development, was founded in 1977 with the management of our first facility, the Louisiana Superdome. We soon grew to manage convention centers, exhibition halls and trade centers, arenas, stadiums, performing arts centers, theaters, and specific-use venues such as equestrian centers.
