Andy Lopez

Andy Lopez started Out There Productions in 1996. The business group includes event agency OTP Australia, and OTP Major Events, the promoter arm.

Andy has a serious passion for major public celebrations – he loves delivering events with a purpose, and the bigger the crowd the better. The OTP group’s events are enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of Australians every year.

Andy is also a co-owner of the Summernats Car Festival, buying this iconic event in 2009. The Summernats has grown from 75,000 punters to over 110,00 every year, and brings over $30m to the ACT economy. The motoring lifestyle arm of OTP now includes MotorEx, Australia’s leading automotive industry consumer show, the Red CentreNATS, a destination tourism event in Alice Springs that brings $10million to the NT economy, and RockyNats which earned $20million for the Rockhapmton region in its first year.
