Hospitality Ulster praises SSE Arena for smooth running of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike concert
19 September 2016
Colin Neill, Chief Executive, Hospitality Ulster, commented:
"We commend the management of the SSE Arena for the smooth and professional management of the Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike concert on Friday night in Belfast. The safe marshalling of nearly 5,000 concert goers is a clear demonstration that SSE Arena place the safety of their patrons as the number one priority. With preloading of alcohol now a major challenge for all entertainment venues, it is clear SSE Arena are doing everything to address potential situations not of their making. The continued sale of cheap alcohol, which is being bought for or given to teenagers is a major concern for our industry and will continue to be a challenge for our venues as they strive to provide world class entertainment, adding to our social lives, creating jobs and attracting tourists"
