Collaboration will launch with new “All Access Interview Series” sharing insights from executives across the sports and entertainment spectrum.
Calabasas, Calif.—TicketManager, a trailblazer in helping companies manage sports tickets, sponsorship assets, and client entertainment, is teaming up with another industry pioneer, Jim Andrews, on a new effort to deliver fresh ideas, dynamic content and practical information sports and entertainment professionals can use.
“The pace of change in our business is staggering, and keeping up with trends, best practices and new perspectives is daunting,” said Tony Knopp, TicketManager CEO and founder. “During his decades in the business, Jim has built a sterling reputation for surfacing, creating and curating actionable content that moves the industry forward. Combined with insights gleaned from TicketManager data and our client connections, we look forward to being a go-to source across critical issues in sponsorship, activation, fan engagement, experiences, ticketing and hospitality.”
The partnership’s initial platform is the TicketManager All Access Interview Series featuring enlightening video chats with sports and entertainment leaders.
“I’ve been fortunate to host hundreds—maybe thousands—of great conversations with professionals in our business who are breaking new ground, setting the standards and truly making a difference,” Andrews said. “I’m thrilled that my friends at TicketManager have asked me to continue those dialogs through the All Access Interview Series, and I look forward to developing thought-leadership content in multiple additional formats.
“We designed the interview series to deliver the maximum amount of information in the shortest period of time. We will get right to the heart of the matter with each guest, focusing on the areas where they are making an impact and can deliver meaningful takeaways that will help viewers do their jobs better.”
The interview series carries the name of the recently released, community-based All Access Community, the largest, most extensive, and most exclusive network in sports and live events to buy, sell and share tickets and suites with other companies. The network includes more than 4,000 companies and 100 teams, and is easily leveraged with one simple click. Users are able to choose their partners, choose their terms, and get much more return on investment. To see how it works, visit https://ticketmanager.com/the-all-access-community/
