  • More Than 50,000 Expected at Graduations
    6/7/2012

    To the graduating class of 2012, Global Spectrum offers “Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!” as management prepares to welcome more than 50,000 guests and graduates to Comcast Arena at Everett, with a record 15 graduation ceremonies in June.

    To the graduating class of 2012, Global Spectrum offers “Congratulations!  Today is your day.  You’re off to Great Places!  You’re off and away!” as management prepares to welcome more than 50,000 guests and graduates to Comcast Arena at Everett, with a record 15 graduation ceremonies in June.

    “A Seattle Times editorial offered congratulations to the city of Everett during a previous year’s graduation season with the message that ‘these are the kinds of events that make a building a part of the community.’  We are honored to host such an important milestone to so many each year,” stated General Manager, Kim Bedier. “Another important part of our mission is to attract visitors to downtown Everett and we look forward to welcoming more than 50,000 again this year.”

    An additional positive side effect with the multiple graduations, where no rationing of tickets is required, is the number of hours it provides for employees.  Due to high demand for ice time, this is the first year the Arena ice will remain in throughout the summer.  The operations crew will be busier than ever with the multiple changeovers, and the gracious guest services employees will be busy greeting guests (and perhaps occasionally tracking down a surreptitious noisemaker from an eager graduate)! 

    “Oh, the places you’ll go!  There is fun to be done!  There are points to be scored.  There are games to be won.”  But today at Comcast Arena at Everett, sports step aside in favor of congratulations to the Class of 2012!
