Performing Arts Centers (PAC) are complex enterprises in a rapidly evolving world. Their successful operation requires clear, compelling, and comparable information. For more than a decade, PACStats has been the standard‐setting benchmarking and performance measurement tool providing that insight to North America’s leading performing arts centers. And now the standard has been raised again.
AMS is excited to announce the official release of PACStats 3.0. Reimagined and entirely rebuilt in close collaboration with PAC executives and industry experts, PACStats 3.0 offers exceptional insight and invaluable information for any performing arts center leadership team. PACStats gathers, analyzes, and compares hundreds of data points from dozens of performing arts centers each year.
The full service upgrade includes:
- An all new PACStats Community Site and URL (www.pacstats.com), to share and learn with your colleagues
- A single, password-protected, home page for everything PACStats
- New functionality, including threaded discussions, with Q&A and spot surveys
- Expanded collection of activity information
Introducing the PAC Stats Community Site
We are very excited to launch a brand new landing page for PACStats and an initiative called the PACStats Community Site. This portal is the central location for participating in the full array of PACStats benefits. You can now access your surveys, reports and all of the PACStats functionality using one login and password at www.pacstats.com.
This password-protected site is only available to PACStats subscribers and includes exclusive new content. We are posting meeting presentations, study reports, and news from your peers. Threaded discussions and Q&A’s allow you to ask questions to your colleagues and AMS in a facilitated, user-friendly format. There is also a complete directory of all PAC Stats users and interactive polls that provide immediate results.
The PACStats community includes CEOs, COOs, CFOs, and key staff from arts centers across North America who utilize and help define PACStats data to discuss the state of the field, identify critical areas of organizational performance and operations, and exchange ideas for maximizing arts effectiveness and impact.
Documenting Total Activity
Based on feedback, we are expanding the PACStats benchmarking survey to allow subscribers to add all venues that are used for significant activity, whether on-site or off; from theaters to classrooms. Across North America, significant numbers of community members are served outside of the traditional performance venues and it is important to document this impact. PACStats now lets you capture that activity.
This is a first step to a more contemporaneous collection of activity data and direct links to your scheduling software. We are already working with VenueCubeTM, Ungerboeck and Artifax to make their reporting compatible with Q2 and will be looking into more automated connections in future releases.

AMS looks forward to sharing the expanded capability of our latest program iteration, and the expansion of the PACStats user community.
