Tickets.com hosted its annual ProVenue Exchange conference this year in Charleston, South Carolina from June 11 – 13, 2018.
PVEX18 invited technologists, ticketing professionals, thought leaders, and marketing experts to explore the patron experience comprehensively, beyond the logistics of ad campaigns, venue operations, sales numbers, and CRM.
“Experiences Bring Stories to Life,” the conference’s theme, is an irresistible perspective. It emerges naturally when you blend cutting edge technology, the Tickets.com vision, and open dialogue—a powerful message for the Tickets.com community and for the ‘experience’ industry at large.
Honored PVEX18 attendees included the World Racing Group, Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball, Buffalo Sabres, colleges and universities, major attractions such as Medieval Times, numerous Performing Arts clients such as Wolf Trap, The Bushnell and more.
PVEX18 guests checked into the Charleston Marriott for three days of immersion in the Tickets.com vision, a family-like environment of collaboration and open dialogue about industry successes and challenges.
Joe Choti, President and CEO of Tickets.com, stated during his Keynote address:
“It is this vision, Experiences Bring Stories to Life, that drives our brand, our technological solutions, and our services. If we achieve our goal, we will help you build stories and create remarkable experiences.”
Elaborating on this year’s theme, Joe Choti inspired the audience with examples of how storytelling is impactful in the experience industry, followed by a challenge:
“It is our responsibility together to be the catalyst that generates life-changing stories through a journey of unforgettable experiences and unprecedented value.”
The three-day conference presented insightful industry discussions, hands-on technology training, presentations on the most cutting-edge technology in live events, delicious southern-style cuisine, and evening social events where the genuine southern hospitality shined through.
