PPL Center in Allentown, Pa., and Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage both opened last week, hosting their first concerts just one day apart. It wasn’t necessarily planned to have both Global Spectrum-managed facilities open in the same week. The logistics of the touring shows dictated dates, as well as several other factors.

“It really depends on construction schedules and client schedules,” said Global Spectrum President John Page, who added that both venues wanted a fall opening to get a few events handled before major tenants move in.

College Athletics Recapture Abandoned Online Shopping Carts

Originally published by National Sports Forum | Published May 28, 2014

Universities including the University of Michigan and University of California, Berkeley are partnering with FanOne Marketing to implement and enable advanced marketing automation for their athletic programs. FanOne Marketing is providing technology and strategic guidance specifically focused on heightening fan engagement, selling more tickets, and increasing overall revenue.

The University of Michigan started this system as a test to see if the customer drop-off they saw in online shopping carts could be recaptured through re-targeting. They started the use of the system with basketball ticket sales, and saw that the analysis they had about retention and recapture was right. This system gave them an opportunity to reach out to the customers that needed a small push to buy tickets and helped diminish the amount of customer drop-off they had seen within ticket sales.
