From the International Association of Venue Managers comes an introduction to the industry and business practices of public assembly. From sports arenas to concert halls, amphitheaters, convention centers, and stadiums, venues vary greatly in purpose, in size, and in the needs they must address in order to be successful. However, certain core principles underlie the management of all of them. Public Assembly Venue Management explores these fundamental principles while also providing detailed information about specific types of venues and situations. Topics covered include the history of public venues as well as business management and finance, ticketing, safety and security, and booking. Additionally, detailed examples of invoices, rental agreements, and financial statements illustrate the real-world situations managers can expect to address. Suitable for both graduate and undergraduate courses, this textbook has been designed to address the needs of students and faculty in such disciplines as sports management, event management, and hospitality. Professionals interested in entering the industry or expanding their knowledge will also find Public Assembly Venue Management a valuable resource for their professional development.

Performing arts centers (PACs) are an integral part of the cultural and creative industries, significantly influencing the cultural, social, and economic vitality of communities around the world. Virtually all PACs are community-based and serve the public interest, whether structured as a public, nonprofit, for-profit, or hybrid entity. However, there is a lack of knowledge about the important community role of performing arts centers, especially those that mainly host and present work produced by other arts organizations. This gap is startling, given the ubiquitous presence of PACs in urban centers, small communities, as well as colleges and universities. This co-edited reference book provides valuable information at the intersection of theory and practice in the professional field of executive leadership of performing arts centers. Drawing on the expertise of leading academics, consultants, and executives, this book focuses on institutions and practices in the United States, and is contextualized within additional fields such as cultural planning, urban revitalization, and economic development. Performing Arts Center Management aims to provide valuable theoretical, conceptual, empirical, and practice-based information to current and future leaders in creative and cultural industries management. It serves as a unique reference for researchers, university students, civic leaders, urban planners, public venue managers, and arts administrators aspiring to improve or advance their work in successfully managing performing arts centers.
