Ticket Summit® concludes another successful day of networking, panels, and live entertainment discussions at the ARIA Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. After breakfast in the Ironwood Ballroom, Thursday’s schedule began with “Ticketing Bundles and Distribution,” featuring industry experts from GrouponLive, LivingSocial, and ScoreBig. Discussing the ways in which daily deals and bundles are changing ticket sales, this presentation was engaging and informative, as was the concurrent panel on the global ticketing market with speakers from Events Travel, Mr.TicketKing.com, and TicketBis. These new channels for brokers are exciting opportunities to expand businesses and increase sales.
At 11:00 AM, TicketNetwork® hosted the Broker Council Update where attendees met and talked with twelve members of TicketNetwork’s Broker Council, including representatives from AC Ticket Guys, Best Time Entertainment, Song Technologies, Ticket Galaxy, and TIX CITY.
The Broker Council Update was followed by lunch in the Ironwood Ballroom and then “TicketNetwork® Private Label 101” from 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM and “The Evolution of the Secondary Ticketing Market” from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM. With professionals from Barry’s Tickets, TicketCity, TicketNetwork, and VIP Tickets, listeners learned first-hand from industry leaders about the growth of the secondary ticket market from its beginnings to today.
The evening wrapped up with two important panels: “Legal Issues and Ticketing Trends” and “Small Business Solutions.” Legal experts spoke about how recent legislative changes are affecting the secondary ticket market while VP’s from American Express Open, MassMutual South Carolina, and Square shared their advice for running a small business.
All in all, the day was a great success, providing attendees with useful tools and information, as well as delicious food and drink. Day 2 at Ticket Summit® comes to a close, but there’s still one more day of the conference to look forward to, including Shark Tank’s Daymond John, “PPC Tips and Tricks,” and the Closing Cocktail Party sponsored by Event Tickets Center.
