ASM Global has been signed to a long-term renewal to continue its two-decade strategic and operational role with three properties in Puerto Rico: the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot, Antiguo Casino de Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico Convention Center.
“We’re incredibly proud to work with a client as visionary as the Puerto Rico Convention Center District Authority,” ASM Global President and Chief Executive Officer Ron Bension said. “Its determination to position Puerto Rico at the forefront of the industry is admirable. It continues to be a pleasure to play a role in executing a plan to highlight the many attributes that the island has and what these wonderful venues have to offer.”
Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot is located at the Golden Mile of the island capital of San Juan and is the biggest indoor arena in Puerto Rico dedicated to entertainment. Antiguo Casino de Puerto Rico is a historic Beaux-Arts architecture-style building dating from 1917 and is on the national Register of Historic Places.
“Coliseo de Puerto Rico is one of the world’s most profitable arenas and has been featured and consistently ranks among the top 15 in ticket sales globally,” said Jorge L. Pérez, regional general manager for ASM Global. “Overall, our premier properties on the island have welcomed 20 million visitors since opening and we look forward to the continuation of this partnership.”
The Puerto Rico Convention Center is the largest convention center in the Caribbean and one of the most technologically advanced in the Americas. It features more than 600,000 square feet for multiuse events, meetings, conferences and exhibitions and is renowned for its design and functionality of its spaces that can accommodate up to 25,000 visitors simultaneously.
“Our partnership with ASM Global has been fundamental in crafting and implementing a successful promotional, marketing and operational strategy that has yielded consistent growth in creating awareness of Puerto Rico as the ideal destination for conventions, meetings and a wide array of premium special events, thus helping foster the island’s tourism efforts as well,” said Mariela Vallines, executive director of the Puerto Rico Convention Center District Authority. “We look forward to this continued partnership and collaborative alliance to reach event higher milestones for our convention district and for Puerto Rico’s economic development.”
