GROUP SALES

Looking for a great way to plan your next company outing, friends & family gathering, or school fundraiser? Come together for big savings on upcoming Cross Insurance Arena events! The Group Sales Coordinator takes pride in providing professional and courteous service to ensure that everyone in your group has an enjoyable experience. You will receive personalized one-on-one service, discounted tickets, and preferred seating.

We look forward to hosting you in Portland!

Why Group Sales?

Cross Insurance Arena family shows, sporting events, and concerts are always more enjoyable with friends! The Group Sales Department has coordinated many outings with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Churches, Sports Teams, Corporate Companies, Schools, Recreation Centers, and local families. A group can truly be made up of anyone. In most cases, it only takes 10 people to receive great discounts! Not only will you receive a discount per ticket, you will also avoid the service fees attributed online. The Group Sales Department is happy to organize seats in the same section so everyone has an enjoyable experience together.

How do I pay for my group order?

Once you have gathered the number of people in your group, call the Group Sales Department. They can accept one credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, AMEX) right over the phone. Addionally, payment may be made by one check (payable to "Cross Insurance Arena"). There will be a small $5.00 handling fee applied once to the order.

How do I receive my tickets?

Tickets will be mailed to you shortly after payment is received. If you would like to pay and pick up your tickets at our office, please call to make arrangements in advance. Once tickets are paid, there are no refunds or exchanges. 

Can you accomodate accessible seating requests?

The Group Sales Department can accomodate all members of your group! If you have a group member who will need accessible/wheelchair seating, please inform the representative with as much advance notice as possible.

Do you have a discount program in place to offer my staff/employees?

The no-cost Corporate Employee Benefit Program is available to companies interested in providing employees with discounts to upcoming events. To do so, the Group Sales Department will activate an exlusive promotional code that can be used by your employees online (ticketmaster.com), over the phone (207-775-3458), or in person at the Trusted Choice Box Office. The Group Sales Department will create a PDF flyer to make it easy to share with your employees. This will show the promotional code, intructions on how to use it, and other event information. Communicate this with your employees for the upcoming events and they can purchase when it is convenient for them. No group organization required. It's as simple as that!

Online Example:

 

 

Do you have a fundraising program?

Yes! Fundraising with Cross Insurance Arena events offers the opportunity for friends and families to create memorable experiences all while benefiting your organization. Sports Teams, School PTOs, and local organizations have all seen success when fundraising with these events. It is simple:

  1. You'll receive the tickets at a special discounted price
  2. Sell them up to face value to the group, family, friends, and community
  3. Collect the orders, and submit only the amount for the tickets sold to the Group Sales Department
  4. Keep the difference for your program!
Food & Beverage Options

Groups are eligible to receive discounts on food & beverage by pre-purchasing vouchers (in any quantity) through the Group Sales Department.

Options Include:

$7 - Small Popcorn & Small Soda ($7.50 value). Vouchers are only redeemable at Cross Insurance Arena operated concession stands for the event date/time corresponding with the event tickets purchased. No cash value. Vouchers are not available during the week of the event.

Make the event complete by planning a pre-show dinner party. The CN Brown Landing, Club Room, and suites can be reserved for any type of celebration from birthday parties to elegant receptions.

Testimonials

"Lauren - I just want to let you know that our group was very pleased with the seating arrangements you provided for yesterday's performance of STARS ON ICE.  Section F was a great location for viewing the show.  And our handicapped patrons in Group F were equally happy with their seating. I appreciate the professional manner in which you managed our group booking from start to finish.  Thanks for your attention to detail and for your cooperation throughout the pre-event process."

- Jim Keogh

Olde New England Tours

 

"Lisbon Recreation and Lisbon D.A.R.E. have co-sponsored numerous trips for our community, partnering with Cross Insurance Arena.  Our goal was to provide opportunities to attend some dynamic entertainment events but a low, reasonable cost.  Most recently, we sponsored trips to see Disney on Ice and Harlem Globetrotters. I have worked with Shawn R., from the group sales department, on the last 3 events we have booked at Cross Insurance Arena.  Shawn has always worked hard to provide us with great seats at a great group rate!  Customer Service has been awesome and Shawn R. is not only available by phone or email; but makes himself available in person.  He took the time to introduce himself when I attended one of the events.  This type of personal contact makes it easy for us to partner with Cross Insurance Arena."

“Shawn is a pleasure to work with. His willingness to make planning group activities for our hospital employees as easy as possible allows the CMMC Employee Special Event’s Committee to offer a variety of shows and events at a location close to home! We look forward to continuing a great partnership.”
