Senior management at the center has over 20 years of experience in similar venues. The facility hosts several hundred events a year.
The facility is designed by one of the nation’s leading architectural firms, HKS, Inc. The firm has been responsible for the design of many of the Metroplex’s most visible sports and entertainment venues including American Airlines Center, The Ballpark at Arlington, Bass Performing Arts Center, the Dr Pepper Ballpark, and the Frisco Dr Pepper Stars Center.
The Curtis Culwell Center, with over 1,700 adjacent, well l...it, and secure parking spaces, includes an arena and a conference center, two distinct but connected components.
