The Stockton Arena, managed by SMG Stockton, was recently ranked in the top 150 of venues worldwide for ticket sales in the 3rd quarter of 2013 by Pollstar Magazine, an industry publication. Worldwide, Stockton Arena came in at #148 and domestically, #86. Both numbers represent the highest ranking ever for the Stockton Arena.
From July to August, the Stockton Arena hosted a range of events, including Stockton-Con, which drew in over 7,500 guests, three showings of Disney Live on September 15th, and six showings of the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus from September 20th through the 22nd. The Stockton Arena also hosted several trade shows and corporate events in the 3rd quarter of 2013.
Mike Cera, SMG Stockton General Manager, had this to say on the rankings “Annually, the third quarter can be a difficult time to book shows. However, we have grown strong relationships with many of our promoters, which has allowed us to continue functioning at a high level during what can be a slow period for other venues. Of course, we wouldn’t be ranked if the community didn’t come to the shows, so we want to thank Stockton and the surrounding area’s for continuing to support the Stockton Arena.”
