Amongst his many accolades and accomplishments, Cinquemani holds the record for most wins, 10 in total, for Booking Agent of the Year at the Canadian Music Industry Awards

Paquin Ent. currently operates offices in Toronto, Winnipeg, Nashville and Vancouver. His move from SFLA signals a renewed commitment to the agency’s live music division after being relatively dormant through the pandemic years that are coming up to the two-year mark in March. During this time, however, Paquin Entertainment has developed an enormously successful and profitable Exhibition Division.  Paquin launched their blockbuster Beyond Van Gogh and Beyond Monet Immersive exhibits in the fall of 2020.  Ticket sales between nearly forty North and South American cities have eclipsed the 3-million mark and generated revenue estimated to surpass $200M in this first quarter of 2022.

“Five years ago, we detected a change in the live production landscape and made a decision to evolve to a more exhibition-style curation of shows.  The success of our cornerstone theatrical world experience was a guiding light in this evolution,” founder and CEO, Gilles Paquin explains.  “We also broadened our agency division’s footprint with the expansion from two cities to four and over 90 staff and a focus on building our agent team. Vinny Cinquemani joining Paquin is extremely exciting.  We are privileged to have him add his years of knowledge and passionate work ethic to our team.”
