Alex Hill

President, AEG Europe

Entertaining 100 million people at events and venues around the world – and the future of the events industry

26th December 2019

Alex Hill is the CEO of AEG Europe, the global sports and live entertainment company. They own, manage or consult with more than 120 arenas, stadiums, theatres, clubs and convention centres around the world, entertaining more than 100 million people annually. Starting out at KPMG, Alex was appointed CFO at Freemantle Media before being headhunted by AEG in 2007. In this in-depth interview, he takes us through the operation to reinvent the O2 from an idle “white elephant” that was the Millennium Dome into a multi-purpose international venue attracting nine million visitors a year, takes us behind the scenes of their global events such as Coachella  and the ATP tennis finals, and gives us a glimpse into the future of the events industry – from ‘scam-proof’ tickets to the cutting-edge holographic technology which allows artists to perform in multiple venues simultaneously.
