O2 Shops Go Entertainment:

14 new ticket agencies in Berlin

MUNICH. 14 O2 Shops in the capital are offering a new service since the beginning of September: Customers will not only be able to buy O2 products and services, but also tickets for the most different events throughout Germany, for example, for all events taking place at the O2 World in Berlin.
People who live in Berlin and do not want to queue for tickets, for example, for rock and pop concerts, sports events and theatre plays at the usual ticket agencies can alternatively buy tickets in one of the 14 O2 shops in Berlin. In the capital, the O2 shops offer the service in cooperation with CTS Eventim, one of the biggest ticket sale agencies in Germany. The trained O2 shop employees have access to almost all of the big and important events in Germany. The additional service aims to attract even more visitors to the O2 shops. "By offering the ticket sale, we want to build a bridge between our core competence as a telecommunications provider and our commitment to events", says Sebastian Prange, Vice President O2 Shops, Telefónica O2 Germany. At the same time, O2 intends to raise the awareness of the company as an event brand: "Our sponsoring activities provide our customers added value and we enable them to experience the brand. By selling tickets to events taking place at the O2 World and other events which comply with the look and feel of our brand in our shops, we reinforce this effect", explains André Schloemer, Vice President Brand Management, Telefónica O2 Germany. Since the beginning of September, customers will be able to directly step into the big world of entertainment - there will be a O2 World Corner in the 14 O2 shops in Berlin with information about events and special activities.
