The 2013 Corporate Ticket Impact Conference (CTIC), the premier event bringing together sports leaders and corporate executives to shape the future of corporate America’s involvement in sports, comes to MetLife Stadium in New York on April 16th.

"Ticketing is the most dynamic and volatile part of the sports business today. Teams can't price in a vacuum and ticket holders, educated by a more transparent marketplace, are asking for more,” said ESPN Sports Business Reporter, Darren Rovell. “That's why sharing information at this conference is so essential."
The conference will address a number of issues pertaining to corporate entertainment and includes guests accounting for tickets totaling several billion dollars in assets every year. There will be a number of individual sessions with league executives from the NBA, NHL, NFL and big companies seeking to shape the buyer and seller relationship for years to come.
"The ticketing industry is undergoing a massive transformation in how business is conceived, negotiated and eventually justified back to executive management and shareholders,” said Raymond Bednar of Rockefeller Consulting. “We've needed a conference exactly like this for a long time now. It's a must for team and sponsorship executives - primarily as an unparalleled opportunity to learn what's really going on in the dynamics of the industry - but also as an important networking event."
The premier networking opportunity in sports features a Buyers and Sellers Summit, a tour of MetLife Stadium (the most expensive venue ever constructed) as well as a series of workshops to attend on dynamic ticket pricing, electronic ticketing and transferring, de-bundling of ticket assets, charitable giving and more included with registration.
Professional teams will finally get insight into their biggest customers and identify the most important issues for businesses entertaining clients at events. Companies will get a first-hand view at how these venues and teams run their front offices with advice for driving impact using new technology and best practices.
CTIC’s goal is to enhance the customer’s experience and ticket asset efficiency while providing teams with the preferences of the people attending their events.
