(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Anschutz Entertainment Group announced this week that it has acquired Bounce Event Marketing, one of the foremost live event marketing organizations.
Formed in 2000, Bounce is known throughout the entertainment and corporate industries for their creative and sophisticated production of special events to communicate a client’s message using corporate theater and large scale event production to impact a specific target audience with genuine entertainment value.
Bounce President and CEO Tim Swift will join the company along with his full-time staff of five, including COO Kristi Harman, and will continue operations from their offices in Santa Monica and New York.
“Over the years, several of our divisions and venues have worked very closely with Tim and Bounce on a variety of special events and productions including all six of the Grammy Awards shows that have taken place at the Staples Center,” said AEG President and CEO Timothy Leiweke. “They are the best in the industry at what they do and will clearly be an asset and great partners to a number of AEG’s divisions, sponsors of our venues and events and ultimately guests and viewers who are impacted by the presentations we are affiliated with.”
“Bounce Event Marketing is enjoying a phenomenal ride, handling events for some [of] the biggest Fortune 500 companies in business today,” said Swift. “Now with the power and reach of AEG’s considerable resources and clientele, we have the opportunity to take our marketing expertise to unparalleled heights. I could not be happier than to combine our live event and marketing operation with AEG. It’s a winning combination for both companies.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
