ATTENDANCE UP BY 10% FIRST QUARTER OF 2012
OVER 34,000 PEOPLE ATTENDED EVENTS WITHIN 4 DAYS IN MARCH


During the first three months of 2012, SMG American Bank Center has hosted 108 events with over 180,000 attendees. Compared to last year, the overall number of events held during the first quarter of 2012 is up by 30% with an additional 16,000 patrons that have walked through the doors. Events held at the venue included concerts, performing arts, family shows, sporting events, conferences, conventions, expos and private events.

During March 23-26, over 34,000 people attended events at American Bank Center Arena, Convention Center and Selena Auditorium, The Texas Leadership and Skills Championships, two IceRays games, Third Day, and the Diocese Jubilee Celebration keynote address and Mass drew large crowds to the venue.

“As our business climate remains challenging in regard to booking major events, we've been able to keep our calendar full,” said Jim Salamenta, SMG American Bank Center General Manager. “This is a testament to SMG's hard work and dedication to providing Corpus Christi with quality entertainment along with providing a substantial boost to our local economy.”

The second quarter of 2012 is just as promising. Events scheduled as of now:

April 19- 22 Buc Days Pro Rodeo
April 21 The Music of Led Zeppelin
April 26- 28 Disney on Ice presents Dare to Dream
April 27 Mike Epps
April 29 Texas International Pageants
May 4 Tournament of Warriors MMA
May 11-13 4th Annual Tattoos by the Bay
June 15 Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey present Fully Charged
