Uniquely, Encore goes further with it's suppliers than being simply a client, aiming to work in partnership understanding suppliers needs and striving to meet mutual objectives in business. In many cases, Encore integrates with specific tactical promotions filling troughs and introducing and creating new business that has significant effects on supplier's bottom line profits.
Consequently, Encore benefits with flexibility from suppliers with understanding of needs for prices and allocations for year round programmes for example, even incorporating peak periods or better terms for release periods and net rates.
"Encore's leaders are highly attuned to the process of theatre-making. By taking acute and collaborative interest from early stages of production through to first previews and beyond, the team is armed to promote shows with authenticity in matching individual productions to the taste and wants of their clients. This surely has to be a large part of Encore's growing influence in the market: delivering good service with absolute integrity."

"Encore is the biggest seller for Nimax Theatres. In 2013 we joined forces with Encore to improve ticket distribution for Producers and Theatregoers by creating the first live link between Nimax’s Enta box office system and Encore’s own ticketing system, enabling them to sell tickets from our live inventory until right before curtain up. This has been a great success and has allowed us work in even closer partnership, plugging our inventory directly into Encore’s unique distribution network of customers across the UK and the world."
