Asian touring markets just got more competitive. European promoter and ticketer CTS Eventim is expanding its reach with the new Eventim Live Asia, which will be headquartered out of Singapore with industry veteran Jason Miller as its CEO.
Miller previously led all touring activity for Live Nation Entertainment’s Asia and Middle East offices. He will run the division, which is focused on the rapidly growing markets in China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia.
“I think CTS is a legitimately visionary company. They are on a roll,” Miller tells Billboard. “They have tripled their revenue in the last 10 years and doubled it in the last four. They’ve done a tremendous amount of growth, both by acquiring talent as well as companies in a bunch of new markets around the world. This launch puts Eventim as as much of a global touring company as anyone.”
