Didier Morissonneau began his career as a radio and television host and by age 22 he was the youngest artist’s agent in Quebec, representing established stars and an entire generation of young talent from television and film in the early 90's. He became a producer in 1992 with the Quebec presentation of the Parisian play Le Petit Prince. Further success followed with cross-Canada tours by such notable American acts as The Platters, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Steppenwolf and The Mamas and the Papas. In 1994, Morissonneau opened an office in Paris on rue Francois 1er to strengthen his relations with key producers and agents in France. He crowned his career as an independent producer with tours by such immense French stars as Michel Sardou (1998) and Johnny Hallyday (2000). From there, he worked for Zone3 as a producer and member of the team responsible for programming the concert extravaganza organized for the 2001 Summit of the Americas that was televised worldwide. In 2002, Morissonneau moved to Cirque Eos to handle their international sales. He also negotiated their deal with ICM in Los Angeles (who represent Julia Roberts, George Clooney, The Beach Boys and Rod Stewart, to name a few), making Cirque Eos the first Quebec artist or performance group to be represented by one of the world's ‘Big Three' artists agencies (the others being William Morris and CAA).

In 2002, Didier moved to L'Equipe Spectra as an independent producer. Since then, Morissonneau has produced shows for Spectra in every major cities in Canada, from Halifax to Victoria and in many US cities with an independent promotions team in place for each market.
