Congratulations to our colleagues at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and the City of Sarasota, Florida, for their latest milestone. According to the county’s tourism agency, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall ranked as the No. 1 attraction in Sarasota County in the first quarter of 2015, the region’s “high season.” The hall drew more visitors in that period than even the most popular shopping and dining locations.
AMS has been honored to work with the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and the City of Sarasota for well over a decade. From defining the local and regional market to strategic and long-term organizational planning, AMS has helped venue and city leadership build their success, and position the organization for future success.
AMS is currently working with the Van Wezel Foundation to assure that the Hall continues as a community anchor and cultural icon for the next 50 years. Our work includes renovation/expansion planning, and coordination with a larger planning initiatives by both the Sarasota Orchestra and a group of non-profits coming together under the banner of Bayfront 20:20, working to develop 42+ acres of Sarasota Bayfront.
