Long Description:
This Convention Center has several elements including an ice skating center.
The Center's website (visit link) has this to say about itself:

"The Pasadena Center Operating Company (PCOC) is a private, nonprofit corporation (501C4) that manages the Pasadena Conference Center, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the Pasadena Ice Skating Center, under a letter of agreement with the City of Pasadena. The Operating Company was one of the first independent non-profit organizations in the United States to combine its facility operations and destination marketing efforts.

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

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."
