Financial services firm Credit Suisse has signed up as the first founding partner of The O2 development. Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), owner of the planned £500m music and entertainment complex being built on the Greenwich Peninsula on the site of the former Millennium Dome, confirmed that the deal is on a long-term basis. It also includes title sponsorship of the acclaimed Tutankhamun exhibition, which will open at The O2 in a bubble-shaped exhibition space during November 2007. The O2 is due to open in summer 2007. It will further include an indoor music arena for up to 23,000 visitors, an O2 Music Club venue with a capacity of over 2,000; an ice rink called the O2 Ice Pad and an entertainment district featuring restaurants, retail and leisure facilities including space for a casino. AEG Europe president and chief executive David Campbell commented: “We are delighted to welcome Credit Suisse as our first founding partner. Its goals are complimentary to our own and its contribution will be very valuable in the launch and establishment of Europe’s premier entertainment destination in 2007.” Further founding partners, whose business objectives can be met by packages that use all aspects of the complex, will be announced shortly from sectors including automotive, electronics, confectionery and utilities. Credit Suisse chief executive Michael Philipp said: “We look forward to having the opportunity to share the O2 experience with our clients and employees.”
