Adcraft Club of Detroit says
Join Adcrafters at 11:30 am on Thursday, Nov. 19 for a luncheon program featuring Tom Wilson, president and CEO for Olympia Entertainment, Detroit’s premier marketer of sports and entertainment events. Come hear Wilson discuss the new Detroit Events Center, future home of the Red Wings and an integral part of The District Detroit.

As president and CEO of Olympia Entertainment, Wilson has identified opportunities for innovative ways to package and promote the substantial assets of the organization through multi-venue offerings and creative promotions. As one of the most diverse and leading sports and entertainment organizations in the country, Olympia owns and operates Detroit’s Fox Theatre, the intimate City Theatre, and also books and operates Joe Louis Arena and books Comerica Park. Wilson is also responsible for guiding and growing these venues as well as looking for opportunities to expand the portfolio.

Wilson had an illustrious 32-year career with the Detroit Pistons, including the last 22 years as president and CEO of Palace Sports & Entertainment, Inc. The Palace was designed largely around Wilson's input, and he was responsible for staffing and developing the operational philosophies of the new arena. Under his direction, The Palace earned Arena of the Year awards nine times by Performance magazine, beginning with New Venue of the Year in 1988. His direction was instrumental in the renovation of DTE Energy Music Theatre. The facility was named the nation’s busiest, top grossing or highest attended outdoor venue in year-end lists of entertainment in trade publications in each of its 19 seasons under Wilson’s guidance. It was named Best Outdoor Concert Venue in Pollstar’s 2000 Readers’ Poll and was nominated Amphitheatre of the Year each summer of PS&E ownership.

Join us and be inspired by Wilson’s vision for the new Detroit Events Center, a catalyst for the 50 blocks of thriving businesses, parks, restaurants bars and events destinations that is The District Detroit, connecting Downtown and Midtown into one contiguous, walkable area where sports and entertainment lovers can connect with each other and the city they love.
