Live Nation and Ticketmaster have announced a partnership with Get Skilled Access, co-founded by three-time Paralympic gold medalist, eight-time wheelchair tennis grand slam winner and disability advocate, Dylan Alcott OAM, to improve accessibility and set new standards in the live event industry.

The partnership will see a host of initiatives launched across the portfolio of Live Nation and Ticketmaster companies in Australia and New Zealand, while also aiming to bring together the wider industry to tackle the challenges and opportunities to create a more inclusive and accessible experience for fans with disabilities.

As part of the partnership, Dylan Alcott and Get Skilled Access co-founder Nick Morris addressed 400 venue industry professionals at the recent Venue Management Association Asia-Pacific Congress by leading thought-provoking keynotes and workshops to inspire discussion and change around accessibility at live events.

Commenting on Dylan’s involvement, Bernie Haldane, Deputy Director & Head of Programming and Presenter Services at Auckland Live said: “Thanks to Live Nation and Ticketmaster, the tools and safe conversation that was presented to us in that one hour was the most beneficial conversation I have had at a conference in years.”
