Delray Beach, FL (July 27, 2017) – Degy Booking International, Inc. has finalized a deal to acquire Odyssey Entertainment Group, a company servicing Greek Life organizations at colleges & universities across the country. Degy, currently one of the largest college, military, sports, and special event booking agencies in the US, continues its rapid growth into new markets while providing its current client base with even more robust services and offerings.
Founded in 2016 by University of Alabama Law School student Elliott Bell, Odyssey Entertainment Group provides comprehensive entertainment consulting and concierge services to Fraternities and Sororities across the country. OEG’s scope of services has grown to include planning fraternity spring formals, specialty trips, game day excursions, VIP concert experiences and more. With the acquisition, Elliott’s existing OEG clients will now also have immediate and direct access to a diverse and robust roster of entertainers and dance parties that are signed exclusively to Degy’s roster.
Ari Nisman, Degy’s President & CEO remarked: “Elliott impressed me from the first day we spoke. His mind thinks unlike most in this business. He has big picture vision, amazing passion, unparalleled work ethic, and I truly believe he is a “disrupter” in the markets he’s penetrated. We are going to do big things by integrating his model here to service many, many more Greek Life accounts, while also focusing his model into new sectors. I’m thrilled and excited to welcome Elliott’s OEG clients into the Degy family.”
Said Bell, “I’m excited to work with Ari and the entertainment experts at Degy. I’ve always looked for ways to take my client’s Greek Life experience to the next level. Joining forces with Degy will do just that. Put simply, it’s a game changer, and I cannot wait to bring this proven model to campuses and Fraternities and Sororities across the country.”
Elliott will maintain offices in Nashville, TN and Birmingham, AL under the new Degy moniker effective immediately.
