QUEBEC CITY, Quebec (CelebrityAccess) — Quebecor’s Sports & Entertainment Group has struck a strategic partnership with AEG Facilities to provide venue operations and programming services for the Québec City Arena.
As part of an eight-year agreement, AEG Facilities will provide venue services, including event programming, purchasing, vendor management services and event-day operations to the arena, while AEG Live, AEG’s live-entertainment division, will also support Sports & Entertainment Group on booking opportunities to events, shows and tours for the 20,000-seat sports and entertainment arena set to open in September 2015.
AEG Facilities is no stranger to the under-construction venue and has been providing consulting services to the arena since the preliminary phases of the project.
“We are very pleased for AEG Facilities to be associated with Quebecor’s Sports & Entertainment Group in the promotion and operational management of the Québec City Arena, which will set the highest standards for design, technology and guest comfort for all future arenas in the world,” said Bob Newman, President of AEG Facilities. “We are excited for the opportunity to work with Sports & Entertainment Group and the entire greater Quebec community to make the Québec City Arena the region’s must-play arena and look forward to great success in the days and years ahead.” – Staff Writers
