Center now led by ASM Global
Venue Management affiliate AEG Facilities, which operates the Florence Center, earlier this month announced the completion of a merger transaction with SMG, a portfolio company of Onex. The corporate partnership creates a new, standalone global facility management and venue services company, ASM Global,
How the transaction will affect the Florence facility has not been addressed. The center did change its web site to address the change on its welcome page:
“The Florence Center is an ASM managed facility. ASM Global was formed from the merger of AEG Facilities and SMG in October 2019 creating a venue management powerhouse that spans five continents, 14 countries and more than 300 of the world’s most prestigious arenas, stadiums, convention and exhibit centers, and performing arts venues.”
The Florence Center is the largest convention, entertainment and exhibition facility in northeast South Carolina with over 75,000 square feet of multi-purpose space, including a 10,000-seat arena, a 14,500 square-foot ballroom, a junior ballroom, nine meeting rooms, and an oversized pre-function area.
