Echo Arena Liverpool has appointed a concert sales co-ordinator.
Robbie Owen has been recruited to the newly created role from his previous position as a client account manager in the venue’s ticketing department. He will be responsible for liaising with concert promoters as well as booking and managing the programme of events.
He joined The ACC Liverpool Group, also home to BT Convention Centre and Exhibition Centre Liverpool, prior to opening in 2008.
Owen said: “I have worked for The ACC Liverpool Group since the venue opened more than seven years ago and have built up a strong network of contacts in that time.
“I am looking forward to working with promoters to ensure we maintain a diverse range of events – not just in the arena but across all our venues including EchoTwo and The Auditorium Liverpool.
“Exhibition Centre Liverpool, opening in September, has capacity for 6,000 for standing concerts and we are currently developing an exciting entertainment programme in our new facility which we hope to announce soon.”
Echo Arena Liverpool has hosted artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, Beyonce and Katy Perry. Forthcoming highlights include Michael McIntyre, Duran Duran and Dynamo.
