The World’s Best Connectors (The WBCs) is an international community, involving professionals from throughout the US and from Mexico. Many of you in Phoenix may remember our featured WBC Advisor in this Friday’s Highlight. Tarena Smith was the Director of Event Services at the University of Phoenix Stadium (now State Farm Stadium), home of the Arizona Cardinals. She was part of the operating team opening the stadium in 2006, after spending 10 years with the Lansing Entertainment and Public Facilities Authority (Michigan).
Currently Tarena is the Senior Director of Stadium Events at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta Ga. She oversees the coordination of all majora and private events at the stadium including Atlanta Falcons football games, Atlanta United soccer matches, Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl, SEC Championship, Celebration Bowl, College Football National Championship Game and most recently Super Bowl LIII.
Tarena and Atlanta, unfortunately, did not get to host the NCAA Final Four this year, and we miss seeing her. But we are glad that she continues to provide inspiration and support to us as an Advisor to the World’s Best Connectors. Learn more about Tarena Smith on LinkedIn
