FRANKFURT, Germany (CelebrityAccess) German promoters Wizard Promotions and Handwerker Promotion have formed a joint venture called Rhein-Main Concerts and have opened an office in Frankfurt, Germany.
Wizard, based in Frankfurt, and Handwerker, based in Unna, are both majority owned by Deutsche Entertainment AG (DEAG). The venture is anticipated to produce events in the southwest region of Germany and will be led by senior project manager Jutta Sebastian, according to Musik Woche. The new office opens Nov. 1.
“With [Rhein-Main Concerts’] integrated experience and know-how, we will have the opportunity in future to market our portfolio in Rhine-Main with a high-calibre team.” DEAG COO Christian Diekmann said.
Handwerker chief Fred Handwerker added that moving into the region was the logical next step “to be present in this promising market with our own local promoter, so we can act faster, and be more agile and precise, to offer the audience diverse concert and event experiences.”
Oliver Hoppe, of Wizard Promotions, said it is “a great honour to be more active here in the local market and to enrich the cultural life of the region.”
