Ticket Summit 2009 kicked off Tuesday evening at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York City and welcomed hundreds of industry experts to the event. In its first year in New York, many eyes are concentrated on one of the cities top attractions, Broadway.
NY1, Time Warner’s 24-hour news channel in New York City, reported that the many ticketing organizations attending Ticket Summit are there discussing the ticket trends taking place on Broadway. (See video here)
“The biggest change is not going to be not just the event but what’s included in the event,” TicketNetwork CEO Don Vaccaro told NY1. TicketNetwork is the organizer of Ticket Summit and the parent company of TicketNews. “Folks are gonna be able to go to backstage passes, after party and interact more with the events. And you’re probably going to see a lot more group sales just to fill up the theaters.”
