Spectrum Center, NC Live Coalition Moving Forward To Help Bring Live Entertainment Back

September 17, 2020 – Spectrum Center is proud to be part of the NC Live Coalition, a group of many of the large event and entertainment venues from across the state that is helping prepare to bring live entertainment back across North Carolina. 

The NC Live Coalition seeks to provide guidance and best practices to ensure the safe reopening of our facilities.  An executive committee of representatives from each venue group has been in discussions aimed at developing procedures to be used when event venues reopen, with topics including fan experience modifications, cashless transactions, venue disinfection, staggered arrival times for entry, and temperature checks.  Each venue’s priority remains the health and safety of its guests and staff.

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from across the state as we each work toward reopening our venues,” said Hornets Sports & Entertainment Executive Vice President & Spectrum Center General Manager Donna Julian.  “It is a great resource to be able to share ideas and best practices in an environment that is new to all of us.  We are hard at work preparing our plans for Spectrum Center will be announcing those as we get closer to welcoming guests back into our building.”

Millions of patrons across North Carolina attended thousands of events presented by the NC Live Coalition venues in 2019.  The NC Live Coalition’s Reopening Plan can be found at NCLiveCoalition.com/re-opening-plan.
