So some of you have been asking just what the venue was that is set to be hosting some of the hottest events of the year and we can finally reveal all. Ticketpro, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Blue Label Telecoms Limited, has secured a seven year sponsorship deal for one of Johannesburg’s most recognisable landmarks, The Dome in Northgate. The venue previously known as the Coca-Cola Dome will undergo a name change and will now be known as the Ticketpro Dome as of the 25th March 2015.
“The Dome is an iconic landmark in Johannesburg and has hosted a series of international stars, as well as successful expos. This sponsorship is a logical next step in our evolution as a multi-service events partner. Through this partnership, we will take events hosted at the TicketproDome to the next level,” notes Werner van Reenen, Chief Executive Officer of SA Distribution at Blue Label Telecoms Limited.
Carol Weaving, Managing Director of Thebe Reed Venue Management, sees massive potential for the newly rebranded Dome, building on its already impressive track record as a premium, versatile venue.
“It is a great honour and privilege to welcome Ticketpro as naming rights sponsor of The Dome. We look forward to growing this relationship and further building The Dome’s presence in South Africa.Since being approached by Sasol Pension Fund, (the venue’s owners) in 2003, Thebe Reed Venue Management has taken The Dome to new heights, continuously setting the precedent for professional venue management in Southern Africa”.
“The Dome is the most flexible entertainment space in Africa and certainly one of South Africa’s most loved and successful venues. The partnership with Ticketpro will allow The Dome to provide visitors with state-of-the-art facilities and world-class events”, she added.
