We will work closely with the county and the community to provide the best in what facility management has to offer, and increase the number and variety of concerts, family shows, equestrian shows and tradeshows to insure the success of this venue."
"We are excited about partnering with SMG," said Carolyn Carpenter, chairman of the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners, "We have been impressed with their professionalism and are confident in their abilities to maximize the use of Cabarrus Arena and Events Center to increase its benefit to our community."

"We look forward to seeing SMG turn this beautiful but underused facility into a top-of-the-mind destination for residents throughout the region." –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
