Historic Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, New York, has entered into an agreement with facility solutions provider ABM as a facilities services partner for the venue. The agreement, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, strengthens and expands ABM’s longstanding relationship with AEG, a world leader in sports and live entertainment, and follows AEG’s recent announcement of its long-term booking and promotion relationship with the iconic venue.
“We’re excited to bring industry best practices and standards to this recently revived, historic entertainment space. We look forward to aiding them in their continued efforts to be both stewards of the environment and good neighbors to their Forest Hills community,” said Art Rodriguez, Vice President, Business & Industry and head of Sports & Entertainment at ABM.
The contract encompasses cleaning services prior to, during and after events. It also includes sustainable practices – ABM will be responsible for recycling and composting. Additionally, given the stadium’s location, ABM will also maintain the neighboring blocks during high traffic events.
“As we continue to restore and renovate this historic stadium, it’s important to us to have a true partner, a member of our ‘home team,’ who can help us deliver a fantastic fan experience that will keep people coming back. ABM’s stadium and arena experience, combined with the dedicated facilities team members they will provide, will be invaluable to us as we continue to establish Forest Hills as a premium and unique live event experience,” said Jason Brandt, Forest Hills Stadium General Manager.
