Ticket SummitŪ Named E.X.C.I.T.E. Award Finalist
Ticket Summit®, the leading conference and trade show for the live entertainment and ticketing industry, was recently named a finalist in the annual E.X.C.I.T.E. Awards, hosted by EXPO Magazine. Ticket Summit® is a finalist in the category of Best Website/Microsite for the website promoting the 2012 summer conference.
According to EXPO Magazine, the 2nd annual E.X.C.I.T.E. Awards "shine a spotlight on the best aspects of a show: the venue, the quality of marketing, the freshness of the event concept, the on- site experience, the business and consumer value, the ROI, and more." Other nominees include trade shows put on by the American Dental Association and the American Payroll Association, the New York International Auto Show, World Travel Market, and more.
In 2012, Ticket Summit® was the Silver Winner of the E.X.C.I.T.E. award for Best Use of Social Media. The 2013 awards will be presented on June 19, 2013 as part of the ExpoNext conference in Baltimore, MD. Ticket Summit® Executive Director, Molly A. Mérez, Ph.D., will also be honored at the awards as part of the EXPO ELITE for 2013, and will also be a speaker at the event on the Show Engagement Strategies panel.
"It is a great honor to once again be nominated for an E.X.C.I.T.E. award," said Mérez. "With our website, we aim to provide a comprehensive resource for attendees while anticipating the atmosphere of the conference. We are thrilled to have that work recognized among such great industry leaders."
