It’s been a while since our last post and a lot has happen since then within the event ticket industry. Perhaps most notable is the fact that we have a new top event here at the Tickifieds Top 10. Surprise, surprise….it’s Super Bowl XLVII. Between all the parties, hotel rooms, vip packages and actual game tickets, the Super Bowl has been responsible for a considerable amount of traffic since the participants were reveled.
Despite all of the hype surrounding the Super Bowl, it has also been a strong week for other sports events. In particular, college basketball conference tournaments. As Marsh Madness approaches expect heavy interest in college basketball. The Rodeos also made a strong showing – see the list below for more details.
