Ford Center is the recipient of the Prime Site Award during its first year of operation in Evansville, IN. Facilities Magazine has bestowed Prime Site Awards annually since 1994 to the top entertainment venues in North America.
Award ballots ran in Facilities Magazine and online at www.facilitiesonline.com. The voters are the readers –booking agents, promoters, talent buyers and special event planners. The readers considered multiple criteria such as seating configurations, sound systems, ticketing, food service & quality, marketing capabilities, event staff and other industry related items.
According to Facilities Magazine Associate Publisher Michael Caffin, “Ford Center is among the Best of the Best and was chosen because of the features and services they provide in this highly competitive marketplace. VenuWorks has done an exceptional job in Evansville, IN and the leadership team and staff at Ford Center should be commended.”
Ford Center now joins the ranks with other Prime Site Award Facilities such as Madison Square Garden in New York, NY, American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL, Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA and others.
“Our staff takes great pride in their work and we are humbled to be the recipient of the Prime Site Award,” stated Ford Center Executive Director Scott Schoenike.
Ford Center has scheduled a diverse lineup of strong upcoming performances, such as Brad Paisley October 4, Journey November 8 and Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival November 11.
