Munich, 03.08.2015. German promoter Marek Lieberberg has informed CTS EVENTIM AG & Co. KGaA about his decision to start working for American promoting company Live Nation at the beginning of 2016. CTS EVENTIM comments as follows:
After more than 15 years of intense and successful cooperation with Marek Lieberberg, we do of course regret his transfer to Live Nation, although we can understand his motivation.
Marek Lieberberg Konzertagentur continues to belong to EVENTIM, and its activities will be continued seamlessly within MEDUSA group. This in particular includes our festivals ROCK AM RING and ROCK IM PARK with their annual combined attendance of more than 150,000.
The focus of our expansion remains on ticketing, and it is moving more and more to countries outside Germany. Last year, we have acquired and successfully integrated ticketing companies in Spain, the Netherlands and France. In Latin America, where we are already successfully providing the ticketing services for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics, our market entry on a broad scale is imminent.
We have been cooperating with Live Nation on ticketing in Germany for many years and look forward to working with Marek Lieberberg in the future.
CTS EVENTIM AG & Co. KGaA, which is listed in the MDAX segment, is Europe’s market leader in the ticketing field, with operations in 24 countries, and one of the leading providers of live entertainment. More than 100 million tickets for over 200,000 events are sold annually using systems developed and marketed by EVENTIM Group.
