The International Music Festival Conference announced today that Ticketfly will be participating at the annual International Music Festival Conference. The Conference is taking place December 4-6th in Austin, Texas at the Omni Hotel & Resort.
Ticketfly will be joining over 150 music festival directors and executives as they come together to network and discuss the latest trends and challenges in sponsorship, programming, operations and management, marketing and public relations, executive management, and more.
“It’s no secret that 40 percent of live event tickets go unsold and artists, tours and festivals fight to gain traction in a saturated marketplace,” said Brian Arnone, VP of Sales, Ticketfly. “While social technologies like Facebook and Twitter provide a huge opportunity to impact that figure, many don’t know how build a structure that saves time and still wins results. As a company built on the premise that social ticketing is the future for live events, we look forward to sharing our successes and bringing these new ideas to light at the International Music Festival Conference.”
