    The Swiftel Center is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication by the City of Brookings, many local entities, and passionate citizens. The following outlines our remarkable history.

    On January 2, 2001, the Swiftel Center opened its doors for the first time to the public. At that time, the facility was known as the Brookings Area Multiplex, Inc. (BAMI).
    VenuWorks was awarded the official contract for operating the management responsibilities of the Swiftel Center. At the time, VenuWorks was known as Compass Facility Management.
    Friday, March 22, 2002 marked the first ever national touring concert at the Swiftel Center. Travis Tritt played to 1,584 fans.
    The official motto for the Swiftel Center was crafted and put into use: MIDWEST HOSPITALITY AT ITS BEST.
    Swiftel Communications was awarded the official contract for the venue naming rights. The name of the facility was officially changed from Brookings Area Multiplex, Inc. to the Swiftel Center.
