Ticket Summit® Launches 2013 Conference Website

Ticketing Conference to Host Major Networking Event of the Summer

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Jan 14, 2013) - Ticket Summit®, the leading conference and trade show for the live entertainment and ticketing industry, today launched the website for its 2013 summer conference. The annual event is scheduled for July 17-19, 2013 at Bellagio in Las Vegas, NV.

The new website includes information about the various Ticket Summit® events, including the three-day schedule of panel sessions and industry seminars, and lists of exhibitors and sponsors. The conference schedule includes an exciting line-up of networking events, such as the Networking Cocktail Party and the signature Closing Gala, which will once again be held at The Bank nightclub at Bellagio. The conference will also include a Game Night on Thursday, July 18, an expanded version of last year's Poker Tournament.

This year, Ticket Summit® is instituting a new element to the speaker submission process where, between today and February 28, attendees can propose panel topics directly through an online form. In March 2013, attendees will then vote on the proposed sessions, with the top winners being chosen to speak at the conference. Other sessions will cover marketing and legal issues, with speakers from companies such as Google and MarketingProfs.

The website also features a new Awards page, which covers Ticket Summit®'s recent awards and recognitions. The Explore page, which provides attendees with recommendations of restaurants and attractions in Las Vegas, is also an integral part of the new website. The art theme of the website, with its bright colors and brush strokes, anticipates the choice of art as the theme of next summer's conference. The choice of Bellagio as a venue, with its famous fountain, the Fiori di Como glass sculpture, and the Gallery of Fine Art, supports the art theme.

"Ticket Summit® will be jam-packed with activities and resources for attendees," said Dr. Molly A. Mérez, Executive Director, Ticket Summit®. "The new website will provide comprehensive information about our next conference, as well as preview the overall artistic elements we plan to showcase at the event."
