OVG360, the venue management division of Oak View Group ("OVG"), is raising the bar on how to provide the ultimate service for clients seeking professional management, food and beverage services, and sponsorship sales for their public venues. The recent merger of our parent company, OVG, the global venue development, advisory, and investment company for the sports and live entertainment industry, and Spectra, one of the industry's leading venue management and hospitality providers, has brought together two dynamic leaders in the live events industry with complementary capabilities that deliver a broad array of services to our clients. Through this acquisition, we have blended the two most entrepreneurial and innovative companies in the sports, entertainment, and hospitality industry to redefine facility management and venue services. OVG's core competencies in arena development and corporate sponsorships, coupled with Spectra's footprint in the convention center market and their leadership in food and beverage services, creates a full-service live events company that delivers a 360-degree platform of comprehensive services and experiences to the market.  OVG intends to  “create a positive disruption in the sports, entertainment, and hospitality industry.”
