The announcement is a key component of the entertainment campus’ continued regional arts and cultural leadership. ASM Global will play a critical role in collaborating on major capital property improvements in coming years and continue to spearhead attendance development, event booking, marketing, food and beverage, and sponsorship programs growth.

C.T. Hill, RPAC board president, said, “We are pleased to extend our highly successful long-term partnership with ASM Global. Its global relationships in content, programming, planning, technology and guest safety to further enhance the visitor experience have been invaluable. They’ve brought a tremendous ethos enhancing the community ranging from artistic to culture to financial. We look forward to continuing our relationship.”

LIVE in Los Angeles; Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona; Darling Harbour in Sydney; OVO Arena Wembley in London; and AO Arena Manchester.
