Hailing from beautiful downtown Danbury, Connecticut, representatives from the new ownership group of the Danbury Ice Arena (DIA) took a few minutes to sit down with us to talk about the recent change in ownership at the DIA and, a change in direction too. Historically, the DIA (which is a twin ice surface arena) has been largely known for its outstanding hockey teams and hockey activities, however, as managing partners Chris Buonanno and Herm Sorcher tell us in the following video, there are plans to expand beyond hockey. The DIA would admittedly be an attractive venue if it were to go in the direction envisioned by Messrs. Buonanno and Sorcher and it is for that reason that we are in Danbury to check out the future plans of the DIA beyond ice hockey. Take a look:

The beautiful sight lines of the DIA

We here at Beato’s Blog obviously support the new ownership group and their intentions to bring entertainment to the DIA. The facility is about to undergo some important renovations and improvements and when one considers the DIA’s downtown location as well as the nearby amenities, this venue should prove to be very attractive to national acts for years to come. We wish the new ownership group, led by Diamond Properties (Mount Kisco, NY), all the best. Rock on men!
