AESC ranked among top venues
The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre finished 2011-12 as the 13th highest ranked venue in the world as well as second highest among Canadian venues, according to Venues Today Magazine, for facilities sized between 5,001 and 10,000 seats.
“To be recognized by such a prominent industry publication is a wonderful achievement,” said Global Spectrum’s Jason Blumenfeld, general manager of the AESC.
Venues year-end rankings cover the reporting period from Oct. 16, 2011 to Oct. 15 2012; in that time, the AESC welcomed over 82,000 fans during the 33 non-sport related events.
The report is based on concert and non-sports event gross sales and attendance.
