Agents Hit 50,000 Customers To O2 Reports Superbreak16 June 2008
This week, agents booked their 50,000th customer on ticket inclusive packages into the O2 with Superbreak. This achievement comes just days before the venue celebrates one year since it was reborn as a leading concert venue on 24 June 2007. In the last year the O2 has hosted some of the worlds leading stars and this week Superbreak puts some of the most sought after artists such as Elton John and Tina Turner on sale for agents to promote.
Ian Mounser, sales director at Superbreak comments “The O2 is an exceptional venue, attracting prestigious concerts and events which provide excellent opportunities for agents. I think it is important to remember the wide variety of things that can be done enjoyed there. As well as hosting some amazing high profile music acts such as Kylie and Nickelback, theO2 also caters for a whole range of music styles to suit all ages. There is everything from a night with DJ Tiesto for clubbers to Michael Buble and Madness. And its not just about music – there is the NBA basketball, WWE wrestling, Disney on Ice, a night with comedian Lee Evans and much, much more. The variety is endless and agents should ensure they are up to date on what has been launched at all times.”
The operator is also urging agents to promote the last couple of months of the Tutankhamum and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs Exhibition which is housed in the O2 Bubble. With the school holidays approaching, there is still time to take the kids to see this amazing exhibition before it departs London on 30 August.
