Entertainment and live music ticketing company CTS Eventim has launched a new concert promoter and artist booking company in Switzerland.
TAKK ab Entertainment will be made up of Swiss promoter André Béchir, who is the founder of ABC Production, which became part of CTS Eventim in 2013. Béchir will be on the board as an advisor.
TAKK Productions founder Sebastien Vuignier will be at the helm of the new business while Théo Quiblier will act as vice-president of booking.
It was revealed earlier this year that Béchir would be operating a new company as part of the Eventim Live umbrella, alongside promoter TAKK.
“We’re delighted to be further expanding our live entertainment business in Switzerland,” said CTS Eventim chief executive Klaus-Peter Schulenberg. “This highly effective, cross-generational team will enable us to unlock even more of the potential in this market.”
Vuignier, managing director of TAKK ab Entertainment, added: “Thanks to the partnership with CTS Eventim, we have laid the foundations for the future growth of our live entertainment activities. Maximum professionalism, extensive experience and the latest technology will enable us to leverage new synergies that we can use together with great success.”
