The SMG story, built during the past decades, is one of professionalism, expertise and unparalleled success in venue operations and marketing. Beginning in 1977 with our first account, the Louisiana Superdome (now the Mercedes Benz Superdome), SMG has continually defined a management philosophy and style that has led to our industry-leading position, with in excess of 220 venues throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Chile, the Caribbean, England, Northern Ireland, Poland and Germany. The SMG European head office operates from Manchester Arena and works on projects throughout Europe, the Middle East and Australasia.

Our ownership and dedicated corporate support personnel coupled with SMG’s industry experience provide the financial stability and leadership qualities to support an international network of entertainment, sport and meeting facilities.

SMG at its core is a venue management company who leverages the experience of managing & operating venues to provide consulting advice to owners, whether public or private, to deliver world-class venues on behalf of the many stakeholders we serve. Our success has been built on many local and national relationships and partnerships, including municipally-owned facilities, event producers, suppliers, architects, developers, sports teams and industry associations.

SMG – venues for every event.
