LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — ASM Global, the venue management company formed by the merger of AEG Facilities and SMG, announced a partnership with “venue solutions provider” ABM to implement ASM’s VenueShield program.
VenueShield, a set of protocols and procedures intended to allow venues to operate safely in the COVD-19 era, was developed with guidance from sports and entertainment facility experts.
The VenueShield program will support the re-opening of more than 325 ASM venues and client partners worldwide, the company said.
