What is PACStats?

Haven’t you always wondered…

  • How is our Performing Arts Center (PAC) tracking against our peers?
  • Are we running our building as cost-efficiently as possible?
  • What is the real impact we’re having in our community?
  • Where are our opportunities for financial improvement?
  • How can we effectively tell our board about our performance?

PACStats can help.
PACStats is a standard‐setting benchmarking and performance measurement tool that helps you proactively manage your performing arts center. Developed in consultation with top industry leaders, PACStats gathers, analyzes, and compares hundreds of data points from dozens of performing arts centers each year.
