He said the audio and visual components were among the last things purchased, so the National Basketball Association venue started with equipment that was “a cut below state-of- the-art, at that time.” Now, 14 years later, he’s getting a chance to make it right.

Throughout the entire Sprint Center project, ICON was an extension of my staff. I was able to focus more of my time on building operations because I was confident in ICON’s ability to deliver the facility both on time and on budget.

AEG has developed nearly $2B of sports and entertainment venues in the US and Europe in just the last 4 years. ICON delivered each project on time and under budget. We demand that level of certainty on our projects and ICON always delivers.
