(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Jeff Apregan of the Apregan Group and Gilles Paquin of the Paquin Entertainment Group have formed Venue Coalition, a joint venture to help identify programming opportunities to its member arenas.
So far, nine arenas in four Canadian provinces have joined the coalition. Participants include British Columbia’s Interior Savings Centre, CN Centre and the Greater Vernon Multiplex, Alberta’s Crystal Centre and Enmax Centre, Saskatchewan’s Brandt Centre and Credit Union Centre and Manitoba’s Keystone Centre and MTS Centre, according to Billboard.biz.
The Venue Coalition is expected to buy talent, attract new promoters and events and create content for all member arenas. The venues range in size from 4,500 to 16,000 seats.
The Los Angeles-based Apregan Group produces, manages and promotes live events throughout North America, and the Paquin Group, based in Winnipeg and Toronto, produces events and manages and books artists. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
