Verizon Center, home of the NBA’s Washington Wizards, NHL’s Washington Capitals, and DC’s host to the biggest concerts and events, partner with TicketManager
CALABASAS, CA (PRWEB) MARCH 30, 2015
TicketManager, the cloud based ticket management choice of over 4,000 companies globally, announced a landmark partnership with Monumental Sports & Entertainment and the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
Through the partnership, Verizon Center season ticket holders, luxury suites owners, and corporate partners now have access to TicketManager’s powerful online tools and mobile apps making tickets easy to use, report on, and get into customers hands. As part of the partnership, the TicketManager brand will be prominent in the Verizon Center concourse and adorns the halftime scoring summary for the NHL and NBA teams.
“We were looking for a partner who understands how important it is to make tickets easy to use while showing significant ROI,” says Tony Knopp, CEO of Spotlight. “Verizon Center’s stature as a premium destination ranked by Billboard as one of the top ten grossing venues in the world and located in the heart of Washington D.C. made this partnership an easy choice.”
TicketManager, boasting globally known customers like American Express, Google, HP, MasterCard, amongst many more, makes it simple to get tickets into the right hands while eliminating the hassle of constantly shipping tickets and trying to stay compliant under increased scrutiny. TicketManager makes tickets easy to get, easy to use, and easy to justify, making the company a terrific partner for tech savvy teams with growing sponsor and customer bases.
“The timing is terrific to add TicketManager as a partner,” said Patrick Duffy, vice president of corporate partnerships at Monumental Sports & Entertainment. “Verizon Center has never been in more demand, and TicketManager’s easy-to-use, world-class service is the perfect technology solution for our customers to get even more out of their ticket experiences.”
“When you have something in such a high demand as tickets at the Verizon Center, there are common issues that can arise which are easily solved with our technology,” said Knopp, “We’ve seen too many tickets end up in drawers, too many unwelcomed guests misusing suites and tickets, and too many tickets getting used for family and friends which could be used to drive business. These are very easy problems to solve, and, in doing so, we take a fantastic asset and make it even better.”
Verizon Center is a 20,000-seat multi-purpose sports & entertainment venue in the heart of downtown Washington, D.C., and hosts an average of 220 events per year. The arena is home to the NBA’s Washington Wizards, the NHL’s Washington Capitals, the WNBA’s Washington Mystics and the Georgetown Hoya’s men’s basketball team as well as concerts, family shows and world-class sporting events.
As a partner, TicketManager will receive in-arena signage and promotion during events at Verizon Center. “There are so many firms out there leveraging sports and entertainment to help their bottom line we know we can help,” said Knopp, “tickets mean business and the numbers prove it. We want to make sure everyone at the Verizon Center is getting the substantial return on investment that comes with being a partner or customer of one of the hottest venues in the world.”
