The Bradford R. Boss Arena Management – Global Spectrum

 

Global Spectrum (global-spectrum.com) is the fastest growing firm in the public assembly facility management field with more than 100 facilities throughout the United States and Canada. Nearly 20-million people attended more than 11,000 events in Global Spectrum venues last year. Based in Philadelphia, PA, Global Spectrum is part of Comcast-Spectacor, one of the world's largest sports and entertainment companies. Comcast-Spectacor also owns the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League, the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association, Ovations Food Services, a food and beverage services provider, New Era Tickets, a full-service ticketing and marketing product for public assembly facilities, Paciolan, the leading provider of venue establishment ticketing, fundraising and marketing technology solutions, Front Row Marketing Services, a commercial rights sales company, and Flyers Skate Zone, a series of community ice skating rinks. In a partnership with Disson Skating, Comcast-Spectacor annually produces eight nationally televised figure skating spectaculars on NBC-TV.

Global Spectrum was created in January 2000 when Comcast-Spectacor joined forces with the Florida-based firm Globe Facility Services, Inc. The new company quickly established itself as the fastest growing firm in the public assembly management field.

The Most Experienced and Successful Senior Management Team In The Industry

One of the reasons behind the success of Global Spectrum is its senior management team, which is made up of some of the most knowledgeable, experienced and professional executives in the business. Global Spectrum's extensive corporate resources allow the company to offer a wide range of services to its clients. These include venue management, pre-opening advice and consulting, administration and finance, booking and scheduling of events, sales and marketing, advertising and promotion, public relations and group ticket sales, operations and engineering, box office management and ticketing services, management of ancillary services and business services to conventions and tradeshows. The company's unique ability to draw upon the resources of other Comcast-Spectacor companies creates a synergy that greatly benefits Global Spectrum clients. Whether it's by creating events, finding and developing naming rights and evaluating sponsorship opportunities (Front Row Marketing Services), establishing new revenue sources through concessions improvements and upgrades (Ovations Food Services) or engaging in out-of-the-box thinking about new ticketing and technology breakthroughs (New Era Ticketing), Global Spectrum maximizes revenue potential and attracts a greater number of visitors at the venues it manages.
