Gannon University and Erie Events Establish New Partnership

An impactful new partnership was announced today between Gannon University and Erie Events, marking the beginning of a dynamic three-year agreement. 

The collaboration will provide an enhanced experience for suite-level patrons at the Erie Insurance Arena under a new name of The Gannon Club. The space offers guests access to unique food and beverage experiences paired with a stellar view of the world-class sporting events, concerts and other experiences at the Arena in the heart of downtown Erie.

The partnership extends beyond the physical space to provide enriched real-world internship and work experiences within Erie Events' facilities for Gannon University students who are pursuing careers in sports business, entertainment and marketing.

Special ticketing programs will also be created to enhance equitable access for students to attend events while simultaneously supporting Erie Events in drawing sell-out crowds that will continue to position Erie as a premier destination for world-class acts.

The partnership between Erie Events and Gannon University is poised to bring added vibrancy to downtown Erie, fostering community development and providing unique opportunities for students while enhancing the overall event experience for patrons. The collaboration represents a shared commitment to the growth, well-being and cultural richness of the Erie region.
