Tell us about your company’s mission and values.
Live Nation at its core sets out to provide artists and fans with the best concert experience possible. At the local and even departmental level, which is the VIP seats program, our mission is to help our guests, whether they are a business or personal buyer, to entertain and enjoy a live music experience the best they can.
What are the services you use the most (or are looking forward to using) from OneZone?
We are most looking forward to introducing local businesses and individuals to all entertainment options Live Nation can provide locally, especially our VIP options at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center and Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park. Many have seen VIP tickets or even enjoyed them for a show here or there, but many are not aware how to purchase them for a single show, for a partial season, or for a full season. The ability to introduce and help people and businesses get the most out of their concert experience is truly what we are looking forward to!
How do you stay engaged with trends that you see in your industry?
Live Nation is one of the companies that set most trends in our particular industry, however, there is much to learn and implement from all sorts of organizations including sport properties. We strive to provide the best products, best services, and best value for our unique form of entertainment and engagement. Trends seen on a global level are passed down to national and local departments, in effort to always remain at the top of our field.
What is your company culture like?
Live Nation is continuously a Fortune "Best places to work" organization. Beyond just the benefits of working for Live Nation, the culture as a whole is focused on employee well-being through various programs and offerings. Tuition assistance programs, stock reimbursement, great health benefits, ticket perks, and many many more establish a program that really does take care of its own!
What does it take to be a successful employee at your company?
A passion for music and the desire to provide a positive experience to everyone you work with in addition to the fans and business partners. We have many great employees locally, handing everything from marketing, booking shows, operating the venues, working with local companies and legislature, and producing the great shows we put on! Each role has its own characteristics but at the heart of it all, the passion for live music lives within each employee.
What makes Carmel and Fishers such great places to do business?
Our particular division of Live Nation that is involved with One Zone is our VIP seats program. We benefit the most from the Carmel and Fishers areas because most who live and work in these areas are familiar with Noblesville and the Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center. Ruoff Music Center was the number one outdoor venue in the world this past year, a lot of that is thanks to the wonderful people and businesses in the Carmel and Fishers areas. Many great companies and small business call Carmel/Fishers home and many of those use our VIP program to entertain and engage with their customers and clients and if they don't have a usage for their business, many still enjoy multiple shows as a personal music fan through our VIP program as well! We are very thankful to work with many from these areas and hope that only grows in the future.
