COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2012) - Tickets.com, provider of state-of-the-art technology solutions to over 1000 sports and entertainment clients around the world, has announced that its 2013 ProVenue Exchange conference will be held in San Diego's Gaslamp District at the iconic Hard Rock Hotel.
Based on attendee feedback, the conference dates -- April 29-May 2, 2013 -- were moved later into the year to avoid conflicting with other events and to stay clear of key dates such as Major League Baseball's opening day. The change in location also represents a shift in the company's attitude and emerging image.
"We've had a recent reawakening of what this conference should be about. We are in the Entertainment industry -- we should act like it!" states Doug Lyons, Vice President of Marketing and Communications. "Our conferences in the past, while highly rated by our clients, were lacking excitement and a sense of the tremendous fun and joy our industry represents. It's time to embrace this and play as hard as we work!"
The content of the conference is also going through a radical overhaul. What is returning after many years absence is a strong focus on User Training that will help all Tickets.com clients gain valuable practical skills. It's also geared to be far more interactive, a shift away from the "talking heads" that seem to dominate ticketing conferences in recent years.
A campaign is already underway for Tickets.com clients, ticketing professionals, industry insiders and service providers to "save the date," and a highly tactical plan is underway to have a steady release of information over the next 10 months to build excitement and drive record attendance.
"As a company, we continually strive to be better. Just Better -- that's our philosophy," continued Lyons. "This conference will go even further. It will ROCK!"
