ABM and AEG renew partnership at landmark Southern California venues
ABM has announced it will continue its partnership with AEG, the world’s leading sports and live entertainment company, in providing janitorial services for five of AEG’s premier West Coast facilities: STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater, Pechanga Arena San Diego, Dignity Health Sports Park and L.A. LIVE.
Rene Jacobsen, Executive Vice President and President of Business & Industry at ABM – a leading provider of facility solutions – said:
In renewing our partnership with AEG, we understand that AEG is entrusting us to service these world-class facilities. It is our responsibility and privilege to help ensure that these venues offer exceptional experiences for all guests and event staff, and we take it very seriously.
This renewal underscores the confidence AEG places in ABM, as well as the productivity AEG has been able to achieve with a facility solutions partner like ABM, who can flex with its needs. STAPLES Center, for example, celebrated the hosting of its 200th “double header” in 2018. [Watch the video here!] This amazing milestone was possible in part because of ABM’s quick turn-around of the venue between events.
Nick Baker, Chief Operating Officer, AEG Global Partnerships, said:
We are proud of our longstanding relationship with ABM. We partner with ABM in Southern California, across the U.S., and around the globe because they continually demonstrate that our success is their success. ABM is a best-in-class partner that helps us create exceptional experiences at our facilities for our fans and guests.
