Partnering with evenko, Bell will deploy new broadband network to create a technology showcase
LAVAL, QC, Feb. 13, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell announced today that it has
obtained the naming rights for the new amphitheatre in the sports and
cultural complex in Laval. The venue will now be called Place Bell.
The agreement between Bell and evenko, which is responsible for managing and programming events at the
amphitheatre, will enable Bell to offer the public a compelling
entertainment experience using the latest fibre-based Bell Fibe
technology. It also underlines Bell's commitment to the Laval community
alongside evenko, Bell's partner in the Montréal Canadiens, the Bell Centre and the Bell
Sports Complex in Brossard.
"Bell is Québec's communications leader, and it seemed natural to us
that we should work again with evenko to offer the residents of Laval and the northern periphery a sports and
entertainment venue featuring the latest broadband technology," said
Martine Turcotte, Bell's Vice Chair, Québec. "Place Bell will be
equipped with Bell Fibe, able to accommodate events requiring the
absolute latest technology and becoming a tech showcase for Laval."
The Fibe network, exclusive to Bell, makes it possible to deploy
broadband fibre throughout Place Bell and provide a spectacular
experience to fans at sports and entertainment events.
