Ticket Summit 2009 Debuts at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel

Biannual Event Targets Ticket Industry Professionals on East Coast

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - August 6, 2008) - TicketNetwork.com, the leading source for the ticket industry's most comprehensive inventory, today announced that it has secured a date for Ticket Summit 2009, the first Ticket Summit scheduled to take place on the East Coast. Ticket Summit 2009 will be held January 6-8 at the legendary Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. TicketNetwork will also continue to host Ticket Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 15-17, 2009 at the Venetian Hotel Resort Casino.

Ticket Summit 2009 is the world's leading conference in the secondary ticket industry. Attendance at one or both upcoming events in New York or Las Vegas presents a tremendous opportunity for an enhanced education on the ticket industry, as well as an ideal setting for networking purposes. Full conference passes are available for both conferences and include admission to exhibit hall demonstrations, panel sessions led by industry experts, software training classes, and roundtable discussions. Complimentary breakfast/ lunch buffets and entry to the Ticket Summit 2009 Networking Cocktail Party are also included in event pass packages.

Professionals who register before August 15, 2008 for a full conference pass will be eligible for the discounted rate of $299 for the New York event and $199 for the Las Vegas conference. Registrants who secure their spot to attend both events by the 15th will also save an additional $100.

"The tremendous demand for an event on the east coast, coupled with the attendance of over 800 ticket professionals at the third annual Ticket Summit 2008 event, compelled us to plan a Ticket Summit conference in New York in January," said Crystal Astrachan, Executive Director, Ticket Summit 2009. "Two conferences on two coasts presents an unparalleled opportunity for professionals who manage tickets from the venue end or from a brokering perspective to gather, exchange ideas and further grow their enterprises," said Astrachan.
