Tucson Convention Center Management Merges into Newly Formed Company

The Tucson Convention Center's (TCC) professional management company, SMG, this week joined forces with AEG Facilities to form the new venue management powerhouse ASM Global.

Under this new company’s management, the TCC will now be part of a family of more than 300 of the world’s most prestigious arenas, stadiums, performing arts venues, and convention and exhibit centers spanning five continents and 14 countries.

The City of Tucson entered into a management agreement with SMG in October 2014 to operate the TCC. Since that time, SMG has successfully worked to professionalize operations and to modernize the facilities in partnership with the City and Rio Nuevo.

Under SMG's management, the TCC has returned to performing as an entertainment economic engine at the heart of Downtown Tucson’s resurgence.
