Once again, the City and County of Denver, Division of Arts and Venues has awarded SMG a three year contract extension to manage the Colorado Convention Center and the Wells Fargo Theatre in Downtown Denver; January 1, 2012-December 31, 2014.

Since 1994, SMG has been the exclusive management firm for the Colorado Convention Center. SMG was a crucial partner during the $340 million dollar expansion of the Center, which positioned Denver and the Colorado Convention Center to be among the busiest and most successful event centers in North America.  2011 also marks the Wells Fargo Theatre’s best single year in overall attendance, number of events and was once again listed in Pollstar Magazine’s Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.

John Adams, SMG’s Senior Regional Vice President for Convention Centers and General Manager of the Colorado Convention Center said, “My staff and I are honored to be chosen as the city’s preferred facility management team.”  Adams went on to say, “we take pride in delivering to our customers the highest standard of service, quality, and value.  It is our people who deliver the ‘Denver experience’.”
