Looking to offer attendees insight into recent advances on the Internet, Ticket Summit NYC this week added a new “Best Practices” session to the already jam-packed line up of topical panels, called “Welcome to Web 2.0.”
The session will focus on various channels of Web 2.0 and teach ticket executives “new tools to keep in touch” with their customers to help them “generate repeat business,” according to the panel description. Ticket Summit NYC, a three-day trade show and conference that brings together the best and the brightest of the ticketing industry, is scheduled for January 6-8 at the Waldorf=Astoria in Manhattan.
“We are constantly looking at ways to make this conference not only relevant but essential,” said Dan Pullium, one of the event’s organizers. “The ‘Welcome to Web 2.0’ best practice session will give attendees an opportunity to learn about the cutting edge technologies that are being developed for the Internet.”
The session will feature two experts on Web 2.0. Joe Koufman, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for the multimedia marketing and advertising company Engauge Digital, will discuss social networking and other approaches to staying in contact with potential customers. And, Eddy Martinez, chief marketing officer at FurrySoft, will discuss FurrySoft and its exclusive, new Tiggits app for the iPhone, which allows users to purchase tickets directly from TicketNetwork’s vast inventory of tickets.
Ticket Summit NYC is one of two Ticket Summits scheduled for 2009. The second one, which is successfully entering its fourth year, will be held July 15-17 in Las Vegas at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. Both conferences are operated by TicketNetwork, parent company of TicketNews.
