QuintEvents Acquires Event Guest Transportation Specialist - GoHammerhead
Acquisition Emphasizes QuintEvents’ Growth, Allowing Further Guest Transportation Opportunities at World’s most Prestigious Events
Charlotte, NC - (March 27, 2023) – QuintEvents, the global industry-leading provider of official hospitality and travel experiences to world's most prominent sports and entertainment events, announced today its acquisition of GoHammerhead. GoHammerhead offers world-class, customized transportation solutions on a global scale at sports and business events. This strategic acquisition further strengthens QuintEvents’ position as a leader in the travel and experiences industry by combining its premium hospitality packages with GoHammerhead’s unique and innovative transportation services.
“The acquisition of GoHammerhead further displays Quint’s total commitment to a fully integrated travel and experiential economy.” said Brian Ruede, CEO of Quint. “Partnering with the exceptional brand, reputation, and expertise that GoHammerhead brings to our portfolio, will transform another aspect of our customer experience.”
GoHammerhead’s services range from detailed, high-end VVIP programs to large-scale transportation projects with thousands of guests. The acquisition will enhance Quint’s already impressive range of amenity offerings as part of packages for the world’s top sporting and entertainment events like the Kentucky Derby, Formula 1 and the NBA. The acquisition allows Quint to deliver design, management, and execution of event guest transportation for its existing partners as well as incorporating the business of standalone transportation outside its current portfolio.
In addition to its current partnership with QuintEvents, GoHammerhead will continue to provide its services to multinational brands and marketing/event agencies at events like Formula 1®, World Economic Forum, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Kentucky Derby, MotoGP, Formula E, World Endurance Championship, UEFA Champions League and many other sports and business events, where it adds value to the most demanding hospitality programs.
“We are very excited to have become part of the QuintEvents Group”, said Maarten Heymen, GoHammerhead’s CEO “While already working very closely with the team at QuintEvents, this further integration unlocks incredible potential for our clients. It will significantly expand our joint and independent customer service offerings at many global events & series. At the same time, this integration improves the customer experience by making services more accessible to our entire client portfolio which ultimately opens massive new revenue opportunities on all sides. As a practical first step GoHammerhead will also have an active US presence at Quint’s Charlotte-based headquarters from April 1 onwards, and there is much more to come!’’
Quint has continued on its growth journey, successfully acquiring other brands in the sports, entertainment and travel sectors including Monaco Star Events and Sportsnet Holidays. Last year, Quint announced the NBA’s multi-year partnership and minority stake in Quint. The company also extended its partnership with Formula 1, now offering exclusive packages like F1 Garage, the ultimate fan experience.
