We know that you are doing award-worthy work every day, whether it’s developing new technologies, improving the customer journey, delivering superb marketing or making moves to disrupt the industry.
That’s exactly why we launched TheTicketingBusiness Awards some years ago – the only awards to recognise a whole spectrum of achievements from across the global ticketing industry.
BUT we can’t recognise things we don’t know about…
You need to tell us about anything and everything you’ve been up to in the open nominations by Friday 22 December.
It’s FREE to nominate, and only takes a few minutes. But the benefits of making the final shortlists are endless.
The public are invited to submit nominations in the following categories
CAMPAIGN OF THE YEAR
For the most effective ticket sales & marketing campaign – with emphasis on the innovative use of technology and digital channels. Please explain how the campaign functioned and include measurable insights into success of campaign with your submission.
UNSUNG HERO AWARD
For an individual/team that delivers consistently outstanding service and results for an entertainment ticketing enterprise (be it a sports team, an arts organisation or an event organiser). Awarded to the quiet achiever(s), the ever-reliable ‘behind-the-scenes’ fixer(s) and the person(s) that ‘just gets on with the job’.
For best migration, upgrade, integration or new implementation project. Who’s moved onto a new platform and really seen their revenues and retention rising? Who’s really bringing their resources together using smart tools and digital connectivity to wow their customers? Who’s bridging the data and departmental silos? Which transformation has had the most impact on ticket sales and success?
Disruptors share a common purpose: create businesses, products and services that are better — less expensive and more creative, useful and impactful — and scalable. Which new business is set to disrupt – or has already destabilised – the established ticketing order?
GUEST EXPERIENCE AWARD
Awarded to the service, initiative or enhancement to the ticket-buying guest experience – be that at purchase, on arrival, during or after the event. Who’s got the ‘best box office’ out there? What is really improving the way our customers purchase and consume their entertainment experience?
PRODUCT INNOVATION AWARD
Awarded for a product or service that has uniquely transformed and improved the way ticketing entities do business. Entries should state the organisation/vendor responsible for the product/service, and how the product/service has improved operations at a specific customer install/venue/rightsholder.
INSIGHTS & ANALYTICS AWARD
Best integration or application of data analysis and insights to an entertainment ticketing challenge. Entries should state the project aims, successes and key products/platforms and partners behind the end result.
EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR AWARD
For the leader, pioneer or visionary that has moved the ticketing sector to new heights. Awarded to the individual that has over-delivered in the past 12 months.
THE TICKETING BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD
The big one! Awarded to the best ticketing business in the business – whether that be a ticketing platform, service supplier, box office, venue, team, promoter, visitor destination, festival or rightsholder. Has your organisation really taken its ticketing to a new level in the past 12 months?
Nominations will close on Friday 22 December 2017.
