LOS ANGELES and LAKE FOREST, California, September 17, 2019 —Toshiba America Business Solutions and AEG today announced a multiyear agreement that will equip the world’s leading sports and live entertainment company with Toshiba’s award-winning e-STUDIO™ multifunction printers (MFPs).
With this new agreement, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, Toshiba becomes the official copier and multifunction printer provider of AEG, STAPLES Center, L.A. LIVE, the LA Kings and select AEG Presents operated music festivals.
Coupling performance with security, Toshiba’s industry-leading systems will help AEG employees produce an array of document projects, from splashy marketing materials for season ticket holders and concert-goers to internal documents for day-to-day business. Toshiba’s Elevate™ platform further enhances workflow by allowing customization of the MFP user interface, including a one-touch operation for both common and sophisticated tasks.++++++
“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with such a preeminent, industry-leading and iconic brand like Toshiba while equipping our workforce with the company’s best-in-class copiers and multifunction printers,” said Senior Vice President of Business Services at AEG Scott Bosarge. “Toshiba’s state-of-the-art document management technology will enable employees within AEG Sports’ managed franchises, entertainment venues and live events throughout North America to simplify and improve everyday business processes in the secure manner they expect.”
This deal continues the partnership with AEG by increasing Toshiba’s presence across many of AEG’s sports and entertainment assets. In July AEG and Toshiba announced an extended multiyear, multimillion-dollar digital signage partnership, making Toshiba the official partner of the LA Galaxy, and Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif.
“We are incredibly proud of the relationship we’ve built with Toshiba over the last six years,” said Vice President of AEG Global Partnerships Jon Werbeck. “Their innovative technology has enhanced our business at every level and the addition of their multifunction printers across our organization will bring even more value to our global operations.”
“We are honored to become the official copier and multifunction printer provider of AEG to allow their employees to operate more efficiently, effectively and securely through the use of our products,” said Toshiba America Business Solutions Chief Marketing Executive Bill Melo. “The agreement continues Toshiba’s longstanding relationship with the world’s leading sports and live entertainment company as we implement our best-in-class print and digital signage technology throughout AEG’s signature entertainment venues, sports teams and live events.”
