Venice, Italy (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
The America’s Cup World Series sets sail in Venice, Italy, May 12–20, 2012, as a precursor to the 34th America’s Cup and Louis Vuitton Cup in 2013.
The Event Committee recently selected Eve Italia to plan the opening and closing ceremonies, VIP hospitality, press relations and entertainment.
Eve Italia, the city’s go-to party planner, brings their exclusive connections to headliner entertainment and fresh take on event planning to the nine-day regatta.
“The innovative changes at America’s Cup align perfectly with Venice’s renovated venues and fashionable lifestyle,” said Marina Snow, Owner, Eve Italia. “We’re the perfect choice to provide entertainment for a new generation of young sailing enthusiasts. As a California native, I love music and understand the extreme sport mentality. We bring A-list talent, like Groove Armada and Motel Connection to complement the high-energy racing.”
America’s Cup was recently transformed to re-energize the sport and attract younger audiences who are more in tune with the X Games than the traditional sport of sailing. The oldest trophy competition in the world will use the Arsenale di Venezia, originally a shipyard and naval depot, as its home base. The Arsenale, under renovation for several years, will open to the public for the first time as part of the Event Village.
At press time, the following 2012 entertainment events are scheduled. All are free of charge and open to the public, located at Arsenale di Venezia and begin at 17:00 (unless noted otherwise):
•Saturday, May 12: Opening Ceremony and Dance Party, followed by Federico Russo and Flavia Sabatino DJ Set (Dance Party begins at 19:00).
