VenuWorks Named New Management Of The U.S. Cellular Coliseum


Bloomington, IL (CelebrityAccess) — The City of Bloomington has hired Iowa-based venue management company, VenuWorks to manage the U.S. Cellular Coliseum.


VenuWorks will commence management duties April 1 under a 90-day transitional agreement while a five year contract is finalized with the City. The venue has been under the management of CIAM since its opening in 2006.


“It is an honor to have been entrusted with the management of the Coliseum by the City of Bloomington,” said Steve Peters, President of VenuWorks. “We are eager to make a positive impact at the Coliseum and to become part of the Bloomington community.”

VenuWorks will be responsible for all operations of the Coliseum including staffing, booking, food and beverage, ticketing, sales and marketing. A new venue manager will be named within the next 60 days. VenuWorks hopes to retain most of the incumbent Coliseum employees.


“I am extremely pleased to recommend VenuWorks to manage the Coliseum,” explains City Manager David Hales. “They have a proven track record of success managing venues of similar size and scope, and I am confident they will be a great community partner.”


The operations of the Coliseum will continue with no interruptions. All existing event and sponsorship contracts will be honored. All tickets purchased to events currently on sale will be honored. The Coliseum will continue working with Ticketmaster, VenuWorks’ national ticketing partner, providing a seamless transition for the patrons.
