Jim Estepa, President and Chief Executive Officer of Journeys, also commented:
“As our partnership with Vans Warped Tour grows, we are thrilled to make the jump forward to naming both of the main stages this summer. The visibility, brand growth and full integration that we’ve been able to build into the program with the Warped team has been not only practically beneficial, but also an incredibly fun relationship to build. Over the years that we’ve worked together, we’ve grown our promotional presence, grown the offerings that we can make to our employees, grown our retail partnerships to include ticket sales in multiple markets and now grown to be the name partners of the main stages. It feels like a natural next step for us and we are excited to see what the future brings!”
