Created in response to the demand for professionally managed public assembly facilities, SMG Canada ULC is the Canadian arm of SMG World.

SMG, the world leader in venue management, marketing and development, was founded in 1977 with the management of our first facility, the Louisiana Superdome. We 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. Our successful growth has been built on the many partnerships, relationships, and resources we have developed with out clients – both municipal and private. This unique combination of resources, relationships and expertise has allowed SMG to define and refine the industry throughout history.

SMG has continually defined a management philosophy and style that has led to its industry-leading position, with over 240 facilities throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, England, Northern Ireland, Norway and Germany.
