A multi-award-winning regional event and concert promotor, Thomas Ovesen is the owner of T.O.P. Entertainment, and has worked with some of the biggest names in the music and entertainment industry, playing an instrumental role in positioning the Middle East as a major destination for highly anticipated events.

With more than 1,000 shows under his belt, he is currently promoting the upcoming Dubai concerts at the Coca-Cola Arena for megastars 50 Cent and Justin Bieber, which will take place in September and October.

He brings more than 20 years of Middle East industry experience, and has been responsible for delivering record-breaking ticketed events, executing major government shows and overseeing entertainment projects for Diriyah Gate Development Authority (Saudi Arabia), This Day (Nigeria) and Arab Media Group (UAE).

In addition, Thomas’ event rosters include some of the world’s most incredible festivals such as the RedfestDXB, Blended and Fiesta de Los Muertos. He has also been involved in promoting concerts for the likes of Beyoncé, Prince, Jennifer Lopez, Guns N’ Roses, Justin Bieber, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Elton John, 50 Cent, and many more with sell-out events of up to 35,000 people.

Thomas was also integral in landing the biggest ever regional concert when One Direction performed in front of a record-breaking 32,500 fans for their highly-anticipated concert at Dubai Sevens stadium in 2015.

His ability to deliver successful events has led him to win more awards than any other promoter in the region – from Best Comedy Show through to Best Concert Awards – numerous times as well as accolades for most of his festival properties. 

Prior to founding T.O.P. Entertainment, Thomas worked for a number of leading organisations including AEG Live Middle East (Managing Director), Done Events (Chief Operating Officer), 117Live (CEO), AEG Ogden (Chief Programming Officer, Dubai Arena) and AEG Ogden Dubai Arena (Chief Operating Officer).
