OLLI took a learning trip to the Peoria Civic Center on March 7, 2014. Megan Pedigo, Assistant Director of Marketing for the Peoria Civic Center, and Eric Yarbrough, Technical Coordinator, lead the tour through the facility including the Great Hall, Ballroom, Lexus Club, Arena, Theater, and Exhibit Hall.
Pedigo and Yarbrough explained the types of events held at the facility, how logistics are managed and marketed, and how operations occur during and event.
While walking through the arena, we were able to watch the Peoria Rivermen practice on the ice rink. We also learned about productions held in the theatre and how each shoe has different set-up requirements.
OLLI would like to thank Megan Pedigo, Eric Yarbrough, and the Peoria Civic Center for an amazing tour.
