TEG has today announced that Queensland’s home for contemporary culture, Brisbane Powerhouse, will join the Ticketek network from 1 September.
Brisbane Powerhouse is located in a magnificent power station of the 1920s reborn as an arts centre on the Brisbane River.
With over 1,250 performances and events each year, Brisbane Powerhouse is one of the busiest arts venues in the Asia-Pacific region, featuring events across music, comedy, writers+ideas, dance, film, visual arts, cabaret, circus, and theatre.
TEG CEO Geoff Jones said he was delighted that the Brisbane Powerhouse has entrusted its ticketing and digital marketing functions to Ticketek.
“Brisbane Powerhouse is not only an iconic venue, it is at the heart of the city’s vibrant arts and cultural life,” said Jones.
“This partnership will strengthen the role of Brisbane Powerhouse by showcasing events on Australia’s no. 1 ticketing platform and helping build audiences with Ticketek’s class leading digital marketing expertise.
“I thank the Board and Management of the Brisbane Powerhouse for the vote of confidence and look forward to a successful partnership.”
Ticketek offers an unrivalled multi-channel network, innovative technology solutions, exclusive major event partners, a network of the leading venues and the most powerful digital marketing capability in Australia’s sports and entertainment industry.
Brisbane Powerhouse CEO Fiona Maxwell is incredibly excited about the new opportunities Ticketek will bring to the venue.
“This partnership will enable us to deepen our engagement with patrons,” Ms Maxwell said.
“It will provide us with the opportunity to access new audiences and streamline our visitor experience.
“Ticketek have gone to great efforts to really understand our business models and ensure artists are going to be the beneficiaries.”
Brisbane Powerhouse features two main stage theatres and three additional performance venues, gallery spaces, two restaurants and bars, corporate facilities and one of the best river views in Brisbane.
The building is a cultural landmark recognised and loved for its legacy of graffiti – or what is now officially known as heritage-listed ‘aerosol art’.
Brisbane Powerhouse hosts and produces some of Queensland and Australia’s largest events, including Brisbane Comedy Festival, Australian Performing Arts Market, MELT: A Festival of Queer Arts and Culture, and Wonderland Festival.
Brisbane Powerhouse is Brisbane City Council’s leading arts performance venue helping to deliver a vibrant and creative city.
