(JEKYLL ISLAND, Ga. – Oct. 25, 2023) — ASM Globa [1]l [1] has won
the renewal of management of the Jekyll Island Convention Center [2]
(JICC) in Jekyll Island, Georgia. ASM Global, which oversees the largest
portfolio of convention centers in the U.S. and internationally has
operated the venue since its opening in May 2012.  

The Jekyll Island Authority (JIA) board approved the management term
extension for an additional five years with an option for an additional
five-year renewal after that at the discretion of the JIA. The continued
partnership solidifies ASM Global’s commitment to delivering
exceptional experiences and ushering in a new era of innovation for
JICC.

“Our longstanding partnership with ASM Global has been instrumental to
the successes of the Jekyll Island Convention Center since its opening
more than a decade ago,” said Mark Williams, JIA executive director.
“ASM Global’s exceptional service and consistent performance have
played a pivotal role in the center’s recognition as a top venue both
within the state and along the southeastern coast. We believe this
continued partnership reaffirms our commitment to excellence in serving
our business and leisure visitors.”

Jersey, JICC is the cornerstone of business and entertainment events in
the region, offering over 128,000 square feet of flexible event space
[3] with a 45,000-square-foot ballroom, 11 meeting rooms, full in-house
catering by SAVOR [4], in-house A/V service, and spectacular coastal
views.

 A Silver LEED-certified venue, JICC is a showcase for sustainability,
with design and construction centered around the delicate coastal
ecosystem and incorporating locally sourced materials, such as shells,
sea glass and reclaimed pine. Some of the sustainability features [5]
include individual lighting for 90% of the building, a solar-powered
water-heating system, innovative water-waste technology, and the use of
high-performance and low-emitting materials.

partnership and continued confidence in ASM Global to manage this jewel
of convention centers,” said John Page, regional general manager, ASM
Global. “I’m extremely proud of our Jekyll team led by Tabitha
