MONTREAL, Feb. 5, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - evenko is expanding its operations with the official launch of The evenko Agency, which provides event services by facilitating access to the many artists it represents and the various venues it manages. The evenko Agency's services are designed for event planners, associations and corporate clients, as well as broadcasters and festivals. Whether an event is for 80 or 80,000 people, The evenko Agency is uniquely qualified to meet and exceed its clients' expectations.
"The evenko Agency is a natural extension of our services and enables us to leverage our expertise and network of contacts for the benefit of those who organize events and create memorable moments," says Jacques Aubé, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of evenko. "We have put a simple and accessible structure in place so that our team can ensure clients fully benefit from our unique network of contacts in the entertainment industry worldwide."
The evenko Agency's services focus on two main areas: the supply of top-notch entertainment and shows starring local, national or international artists, and the rental of venues under its management. In entertainment, The evenko Agency offers the services of a wide range of artists in comedy, emceeing, music, professional sports and more, for various performances, including masters of ceremonies, conferences or live shows. Former Canadiens players are also part of the talent pool represented by the Agency.
For venue rentals, The evenko Agency has privileged access to numerous options of all sizes, including the Bell Centre, La Mise au Jeu restaurant, 9-4-10 restaurant, the Métropolis, l'Astral, the Virgin Mobile Corona Theatre, the Galerie Lounge TD and the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard. Thanks to the volume of business generated, The evenko Agency is able to offer competitive rates to meet the budgets of both small and very large events.
"No request is too extravagant for The evenko Agency," Mr. Aubé adds. "For example, if a corporate customer or event planner wants to secure a world-class star for a product launch, we have the necessary contacts to make it happen. Much like evenko, the Agency will also work throughout the province. Our services are not limited to Montreal."
The evenko Agency's offices are located at the Bell Centre and the team is led by two seasoned managers who have extensive expertise in the events and entertainment industry: Pascale McDougall, responsible for artists (514 925-2395, [email protected]) and Valérie White, responsible for venues (514 925-2124, [email protected]).
