FTC Sponsoring Ticket Summit 2011

Are you attending Ticket Summit?  If so, come find us!

Free Ticket Classifieds will be sponsoring the 6th annual Ticket Summit in New York City.  Ticket Summit is the leading trade show and conference which focuses on the secondary ticket market and is hosted by TicketNews and its parent company TicketNetwork.    Ticket Summit was launched as an annual event in the summer of 2006.  The trade show now occurs twice a year with a show in New York City in January and one in Las Vegas in July.

Several hundred ticketing professionals and brokers who are experts in the field are expected attend the event happening January 13 – 14th at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City.  The trade show offers attendees seminars and workshops, as well as great networking opportunities within the industry.

In addition to brokers and ticketing professionals, Ticket Summit also offers attendees the chance to meet representatives from the theater and professional sports communities, and technology and software sectors.  Some of which include: Dustin Brighton of eBay,  Susan Cohog from NGL, Randy Cohen from TicketCity,  Brian Jemison from the New Jersey Nets, Shawn Kuzmin of the Detroit Pistons, and Jonathan Lesser of Stubhub,

By sponsoring this event, Free Ticket Classifieds hopes to bring more attention to such a unique and specialized site and thus bring in even more traffic.  By driving up advertising and exposure to new markets and people who have yet to hear of Free Ticket Classifieds, the amount of turnover and sales for ticket brokers who advertise on the site will likely skyrocket.

TicketNews is one of the best sites to stay on top of the happenings within the event ticket market.  Of particular interest are their rankings of the top events and venues.  TicketNews offers this very useful list at the right side bar near the top on their site.

So, if you plan to attend TicketSummit and want to meet with us in New York send us an email  at to set up an appointment.  Hope to see you there!

Wild Card and Divisional Schedule Announced by NFL

The postseason schedule is shaping nicely once the Seattle Seahawks beat the St. Louis Rams on Sunday (Jan. 2) Night Football.  Also, notably, the Green Bay Packers won a very important game for them against the Chicago Bears last night.  While the outcome of the game would neither adversely nor positively affect the Bears post season chances, the Packers desperately needed a win to stay in.  Ask and ye shall receive, yah?

The schedule of sites, dates and times for the National Football League Wild Card Playoffs and Divisional Playoffs were announced by Commissioner Roger Goodell today.  The Wild Card Playoffs occur January 8-9th while the Divisional Playoffs take place January 15 – 16th.
