INB Renews SPFD Partnership

12.18.2015 In the Community

INB and the Spokane Public Facilities District (SPFD) announced the renewal of a ten-year partnership agreement designating INB as the exclusive naming sponsor of the 2,700 seat INB Performing Arts Center.

“The District welcomes the opportunity to continue the incredible partnership with INB,” said Kevin Twohig, Chief Executive Officer for the SPFD. “It has allowed us the opportunity to improve the customer experience at the facility and supports attracting some pretty remarkable talent and blockbuster shows.” 

Ten years ago marked the first sponsorship commitment from INB and allowed the financial support for substantial improvements to the historic building (built for Spokane’s 1974 World Fair). In recognition for their support the District officially changed the name (from the Spokane Opera House) to the INB Performing Arts Center in 2006.

“INB is proud to continue our partnership with such an iconic facility,” said Russ Lee, INB President and CEO. “INB shares a similar passion with the SPFD for supporting the arts and bringing top notch entertainment to the Inland Northwest.”
