AEG Names United Rentals An Official Partner For Specialized Equipment, Service And Support

LOS ANGELES – AEG, the world’s leading sports and live entertainment company, launched a partnership with United Rentals, the world’s largest equipment rental provider. A new multiyear agreement, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, makes United Rentals the exclusive equipment rental partner to a selection of AEG venues, festivals and sports franchises.

As part of the agreement, AEG will leverage United Rentals’ experience with successfully supplying equipment for large-scale sporting and entertainment events to add additional production value and improved operations.

“United Rentals’ dedication to innovation and superior technology will strengthen our internal equipment services and support, and their demonstrated industry expertise will help us deliver a superior fan experience for our live event attendees,” said Jon Werbeck, vice president, AEG Global Partnerships.

Recognized as a top military and veteran employer, United Rentals will introduce a number of themed activations and promotions at several of AEG’s high-profile music festivals as a way of saying thank you to current and former service members. United Rentals will also develop, in collaboration with AEG, original branded hospitality areas with custom merchandise and amenities at these select festivals. Both United Rentals and AEG have a longstanding history of supporting active duty staff and veterans. Together, they will work together to amplify the live entertainment experience and give back to those who serve.

“This new partnership truly reflects our commitment to excellence and desire to work with best-in-class partners like AEG,” said Chris Hummel, chief marketing officer, United Rentals. “We are honored that they have put their trust in our team and look forward to bringing our years of experience, resources and knowledge to some of their most prestigious festivals, teams and venues.”

In addition to music and live entertainment, United Rentals will also support a number of community events and initiatives such as the “LA Kings Holiday Ice,” a program that brings public outdoor ice-skating rinks to popular locations across Los Angeles during the holiday season. The annual program is produced by the LA Kings and brings thousands of Angelinos and their families together for outdoor holiday fun and entertainment each year.
