VMA’s New Lease & Management

The lease at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence, R.I., is now in the hands of the Rhode Island Convention Center Authority, which has also taken over operations of the 1,931-capacity venue.

The authority entered into a management agreement with Professional Facilities Management and has named Stephen Habl as VMA general manager.

Habl was most recently the special events manager at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I.
