The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Feld Entertainment Inc., the world's largest producer of live family entertainment, has partnered with us as a major member. Its membership to the Brooklyn Chamber comes after Feld Entertainment plans to bring several family events to the world-class Barclays Center in Brooklyn over the coming years.
"We are thrilled to have Feld Entertainment as a Chamber member and we welcome them to Brooklyn," said Carlo A. Scissura, President & CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. "Feld Entertainment is a wonderful company that delivers family-friendly entertainment to millions of people and helps boost the local economy. We look forward to working together in the coming years. From the circus to its ice shows, I would like to thank Feld Entertainment for investing in Brooklyn and for delivering great shows to a diverse audience that only this borough can provide."
As a member, Feld Entertainment and the Chamber will partner together on a series of initiatives, including the creation of networking events and providing Chamber members with ticket discounts. The Chamber will also help Feld Entertainment promote its various events at the Barclays Center through its various outlets, including our website ibrooklyn.com, bi-monthly newspaper The Progress and daily newsletter the Brooklyn Buzz.
Several of Feld Entertainment's live action productions to be staged at the Barclays Center in 2013 include the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Disney Live! Feld already held Disney On Ice at the Barclays Center to much success at the end of November and earlier this month. The company plans to hold at least 48 total performances annually at the Barclays Center.
