About

The Pasadena Center Operating Company is a nonprofit corporation 501(c)(4) formed by the City of Pasadena to manage the Pasadena Convention Center, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the Pasadena Ice Skating Center.

The PCOC was one of the first independent non-profit organizations in the US to combine its facility operations and destination marketing efforts.

The PCOC is governed by a 15 member board of directors. The board includes eight members at large, each of whom live in the city; four general managers of the major hotels in Pasadena; an economic interest representative; a city council member; a designee from the city manager’s office; a designee from the Tournament of Roses Association.

The PCOC is funded by earned revenue from its facilities, proceeds from a tourism business improvement district that is funded by a hotel/motel assessment, and a portion of the hotel/motel transient occupancy tax.

The mission of the Pasadena Center Operating Company (PCOC) is to promote Pasadena as a meeting and travel destination in an effort to maximize economic impact through the development of meetings, conventions, entertainment events and tourism by providing professionally managed facilities and first-class service.

Vision Statement

The vision for the PCOC is for Pasadena to be the premier “West Coast destination” for conventions, tradeshows, conferences, and leisure travelers.
