Concert & Event Promotion in the US

Through economic booms and busts, Americans have long valued live entertainment. This has helped maintain generally stable revenue growth for the Concert and Event Promotion industry. Although some industry operators struggled to maintain the high rate of growth that benefited the industry early on in the five-year period, the industry's outlook remains generally positive. Over the five years to 2021, continued growth within the United States, marked by a rise in discretionary spending and corporate profit, is expected to drive modest but steady revenue growth over the period. Lower ticket price options are also expected to drive event attendance and, consequently, increase ancillary spending on parking, merchandise and value-added extras such as VIP packages and event recordings.

This industry creates, manages and promotes live performances and events, ranging from concerts and theater performances to state fairs and air shows. Some promoters lease space from stadium, arena and theater owners, while others own and operate venues.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
