Dreamland Margate has extended its agreement with AXS, which will see the ticketing company continue to partner on events at the UK venue.
The multi-year deal will cover shows and exhibitions across the Kent amusement park and venue complex, which was recently granted permission to double the number of gigs it can present annually to 40.
“Having the right ticketing solutions in place is crucial regardless of the event and AXS have shown time and again over the last number of years that they are the best partner for us,” says Dreamland Margate CEO Eddie Kemsley.
AXS UK MD Chris Lipscomb adds: “AXS are delighted to announce this extended partnership with Dreamland Margate. They are a unique and iconic venue and we’ve been honoured to work with them since 2020, seeing them continue to grow and attract top class acts to Kent. We look forward to using the wealth of experience we have to continue to help the team at Dreamland drive their business forward.”
AXS Europe director of ticketing Paul Newman will be one of the speakers during ILMC 35’s Ticketing: A Full House panel at 11.30am on Thursday 2 March.
