The former SMG man will handle both bookings and corporate partnerships for operator AEG at the 6,000-seat venue, set to open in early 2019
By IQ on 25 Jan 2017
AEG Facilities has appointed Jose ‘Jochi’ Dávila Carlos to oversee sponsorship and programming at its new Puerto Rican venue at District Live! in San Juan.
The 6,000-capacity music and entertainment venue was first announced last October, with AEG Facilities president Bob Newman expressing his hope it will “instantly become one of the area’s most visited destinations for both residents and tourists alike”.
Dávila (pictured), who was from January 2002 to September 2015 regional vice-president of business development at rival arena operator SMG, will report directly to Newman and be responsible for both booking and corporate sponsorships throughout the District Live! development and nearby Puerto Rico Convention Center.
“Having Jochi join our team marks another great milestone for this project”
“Having Jochi join our team marks another great milestone for this project,” says Newman. “His track record in developing amazing corporate partnerships and positive client relationships in the market is unparallelled.”
Dávila adds: “I am extremely happy to be officially part of the AEG Facilities family and contribute to the development of District Live!, a much-needed project for the district authority and the entertainment industry in Puerto Rico.”
