Event & Ticket Management leader partners with major universities and Learfield to make customer entertainment easy and effective at college football games
When college football kicks off the 2016 season, stadiums nationwide will be full of businesses using the power of live events to spend time with their customers and prospects. Thanks to a partnership between Learfield and TicketManager, the cloud-based client entertainment solution used by more than 4,000 leading companies and over 60 professional sports teams, companies at fifteen college football powerhouses will have the competitive advantage of easy-to-use event and ticket management tech.
“This year our university partners will have some of the biggest and best games in college sports,” said Learfield EVP, Chief Revenue Officer Andy Rawlings. “We’re pleased that for a second consecutive athletic season, TicketManager will show our partners and our sponsors how to precisely measure the way these experiences drive business.”
Included in the partnership are some of college football’s best known brands including defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide, Big XII champion Oklahoma Sooners, Pac-12 Champion Stanford Cardinal, and perennial powerhouses the Miami Hurricanes, Texas A&M Aggies, Missouri Tigers and Penn State Nittany Lions. Sponsors and customers will have access to TicketManager’s pioneering event and ticket management app, the same award winning tech currently used by globally known brands like Verizon, American Express, FedEx, Fox Sports, and MasterCard.
“The future is here for client entertainment and we’re very excited to be working with such prestigious and well-known programs to bring ticket management to companies of all sizes,” said Tony Knopp, CEO and Co-Founder of TicketManager. “Taking customers to games and events needs to be easy and fun. We understand the need for compliance, the need to invite the right people, and the constant demand for such great events. We work with teams and companies to make client entertainment a fun and positive experience for all involved.”
