LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Venue booking and management consultant Arena Network and its Theater Network division have announced singing three new venues, adding to its portfolio of more than 40 facilities.
New memberships include Fargodome in Fargo, N.D., Wolstein Center in Cleveland, and Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Saint Paul. Venue Network added that there are more on the way.
“We are proud to be able to serve these prestigious venues with our combination of booking expertise and management experience gained over a combined seventy years of our staff working in the live environment,” Arena Network CEO Ed Rubinstein said. “As we grow our footprint, we continue to provide the competitive advantage for acquiring live entertainment content that our venue members seek.”
Jennifer Kelly, Executive Director of Wolstein Center, noted that “in the short period during which we have been an Arena Network member, we are already in the process of booking multiple shows that they brought to us.”
“We need to keep current with touring talent and the agents that route them and Arena Network helps us do that”, Rob Sobolik, General Manager of the Fargodome added.
“It is great for our venue to be able to trade information with some of the finest performing arts center in the country. We all talk at least once a week and many times more than that. Those conversations, with Theater Network’s guidance, lead to a number of shows that have or will play the Ordway” said Andre Bennington, Director of Programming at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, which is a member of Theater Network, a division of Arena Network consisting of 14 theaters and performing arts centers throughout North America.
