SMG, the world leader in venue management, marketing and development, was founded in 1977 with the management of its first facility, the Louisiana Superdome. SMG soon grew to manage convention centers, exhibition halls and trade centers, arenas, stadiums, performing arts centers, theaters, and specific-use venues such as equestrian centers. SMG's clients benefit from the company’s depth of resources and its unparalleled expertise, leadership, and creative problem-solving. Successful growth has been built on the many partnerships, relationships, and resources SMG has developed with its clients — both municipal and private. This unique combination of resources, relationships, and expertise has allowed SMG to define and refine the industry throughout its history.  SMG’s ownership and team of dedicated corporate support personnel make SMG unrivalled in the field of private facility management.

SMG manages over 220 facilities around the world. In the state of Washington, SMG manages both the Lynnwood Convention Center (Lynnwood, WA) and the ShoWare Center (Kent, WA).
