What We Do

  • Through innovation and strategic execution, Rock Entertainment Group is known for best-in-breed corporate partnerships with brands from across the world. Guided by established, well-networked and creative senior leaders, the team has a proven track record of developing mutually beneficial partnerships and maintaining strong relationships throughout the marketplace. Our Global Partnership team is perennially top five in the NBA, AHL, G-League and NBA2K in revenue generation.

  • The sports teams, entertainment experiences and venues within the Rock Entertainment Group family are often the hottest (and toughest) ticket in town! In Cleveland, the Cavaliers and Monsters rank near the top of the NBA and AHL, respectively, in terms of tickets sold to home games at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Record attendance and sellouts are common occurrence for major concerts and events that come through our venues. With a new, innovative partnership with SeatGeek, the ticketing process is best-in-class with an intuitive and effortless back-of-house platform and award-winning fan-facing mobile experience.

  • Inspired by the vision of Chairman Dan Gilbert, Rock Entertainment Group is known for their explosive game presentation, creative promotions and dynamic fan content that has raised the bar across the sports and entertainment landscape for decades. Just simply attend a Cavaliers, Monsters or any concert or event at the award-winning and newly-transformed Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse and you’d see why! The in-house marketing and digital team rivals the best creative agencies in the country, constantly striving to up the ante and find new and exciting ways to brand and market to diverse global audiences.

  • The Rock Entertainment Group booking and production team has helped propel unparalleled success for the venues they serve, driven by decades of experience, and strong relationships with promoters from across the sports and entertainment landscape. While Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is a must-play tour stop that hosts over 200 concerts and events each year, it also is home to 1,400 private, more intimate events annually. According to Pollstar, the preeminent voice of live entertainment, it is one of the most active venues per capita in the country. That level of activity would not be possible without the well-oiled machine that is the booking and production team.

  • Rock Entertainment Group has planned and executed some of the most prolific events in the world, including the 2016 Republican National Convention, NBA Finals, multiple NCAA Tournaments and more. The team is adept at managing safe and seamless events, as well creating a healthy and clean environment for everyone in attendance. In Cleveland, the city has proven time and time again to be major event ready, and the excellent facilities operation at Rock Entertainment Group has been a cornerstone of that success.

  • Based on 20 philosophies called "ISMs," Rock Entertainment Group has a deeply ingrained culture from the top down that is widely recognized and regarded as one of the best in all of business. This culture of excellence provides the roadmap to success and helps guide decision-making across the organization, especially within these critical business functions.

  • With a deep understanding of the importance of including diverse opinions and people every step of the way, Rock Entertainment Group is committed to diversity, inclusion and community engagement, and is keenly aware of the positive impact it has on our businesses. The Cavaliers have one of the highest minority full-time staff percentages across all major league sports, and have earned "Hall of Fame" status locally by the Greater Cleveland Partnership for Senior Management Diversity. As one of the few major league teams that have a dedicated senior- level DEI position, the Cavaliers play a leadership role in the Northeast Ohio community.

  • Rock Entertainment Group features a dedicated team of professionals that specialize in all areas of event planning, hospitality, customer service, production and building operations. With over 200 ticketed and 1,400 private events at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse each year, this team has a tremendous amount of experience planning and executing flawless events. From concept to strategy to creative to production to execution, Rock Entertainment Group is there every step of the way.
