Event Details

Our September Game Changers conversation showcases Harvey Lister, Chairman and Chief Executive of AEG Ogden. AEG Ogden is the largest venue management company in the Asia Pacific region, with operating entities currently managing over 200,000 seats in 12 venues, across the Asia Pacific.

Harvey Lister commenced his career in the music industry in Brisbane with radio station 4IP in the early 1970’s, and in 1975 launched a concert and event business titled Tour Promotions. During the past 40 years, Mr Lister, with business partner Mr Rod Pilbeam, has been involved in the presentation and management of events spanning all forms of sport, the arts, conventions and exhibitions, concerts and general entertainment and has a wealth of knowledge and practical experience in the design and operation of major public assembly facilities, the events they host, and of the tourism and leisure industries generally.

He and his companies have, to date, been involved in the presentation of over 30,000 major events.

Mr Lister was responsible for establishing the Queensland Leisure operation to manage the Brisbane Entertainment Centre upon its opening in 1986, and later the development of the business into a global network of venues in partnership with the US based entertainment industry giant AEG, the leading entertainment, sports and venue operator in the world. Today that family of facilities comprises over 150 of the industry’s pre-eminent venues worldwide.

 After the event, network with Harvey on the stunning Queensland Terrace.
