Grove Sticks With Nederlander

City-owned The Grove of Anaheim in California will be booked and run by the Nederlander Organization for at least the next five years, thanks to a management agreement extension.

The 1,700-seat venue, built in 1997, has been managed by Nederlander since October 2002 and, with the contract extension, will continue to be through December 31, 2010.

“The City of Anaheim is pleased with the results the Nederlander Organization has had in programming the facility and looks forward to a continued successful partnership,” said Greg Smith, Anaheim’s Convention, Sports and Entertainment Department executive director.
