The No 1 Information Resource For The Live Entertainment Industry

Background was launched in April 2000 as a business to business resource for Entertainment Industry Professionals in Scandinavia. The company was founded by Ronni Didriksen, who after many years working as a promoter in the region realized the necessity to develop a reliable on-line resource that would not only provide accurate information on the entertainment business, but also save time through state of the art tools designed to ease day-to-day operations. Due to the success of the service in Scandinavia it was only natural to expand into the rest of Europe.

The databases are accessed electronically over the internet and are sold as an annual subscription service to entertainment industry professionals. Today VIP-Booking's subscribers span over more than 45 countries.
