As a focal point of Greater Miami-Dade County’s diverse cultural life, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts strives to enlighten, educate, and entertain its community through transformational arts and cultural experiences. They do so through a large and complex collection of performing arts, education, outdoor public spaces, and support facilities. To understand and improve the dynamics of these many elements, the Arsht Center subscribes to our PACStats benchmarking service.

PACStats provides an annual snapshot of financial, activity, attendance, and venue utilization data. It provides a comprehensive view of the Arsht Center’s operations, but also places that data in context with peer institutions across the country. As a result, the Arsht Center board and leadership can become better stewards of their resources, and more proactive managers of their mission.

“The PACStats report is a resource that provides us with valuable data that we can share with our Board to provide a framework for the analysis of our operational and strategic goals and results,” says John Burnet, Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. “The data provides management with useful dashboard measures for operations and reporting. The process also facilitates an interaction amongst our peer organizations that is invaluable.”
