(LOS ANGELES – Oct. 10, 2023) – Highlighted by its leading role in
helping guide three landmark Puerto Rico venues to a just-concluded
record-breaking 2023 financial performance, ASM Global has been signed
to a long-term renewal contract continuing its two-decade strategic and
operational role with those properties.

The Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot, located at the Golden
Mile of the island capital of San Juan, is the biggest indoor arena in
Puerto Rico dedicated to entertainment. Dedicated in 2004 with a
performance by Van Halen, it accommodates up to 18,500 spectators.

Antiguo Casino de Puerto Rico is a historic Beaux-Arts
architecture-style building dating from 1917, featuring spectacular
verdant gardens, balconies, white marble floors and an iconic swirling
grand central staircase and is on the national Register of Historic
Places.

The Puerto Rico Convention Center is the largest convention center in
the Caribbean and one of the most technologically advanced in the
Americas. It features more than 600,000 square feet for multiuse events,
meetings, conferences and exhibitions and is renowned for its design and
functionality of its spaces that can accommodate up to 25,000 visitors
simultaneously.

as simply a collection of beautiful beaches to one of the world’s
great entertainment destinations.

proud to work with a client as visionary as the Puerto Rico Convention
Center District Authority. Its determination to position Puerto Rico at
