Orlando, FL, USA — November 18-22, 2013 will mark Gateway Ticketing Systems’ 22nd anniversary as an exhibitor at the annual IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida. In addition to the opportunity to greet existing and prospective customers at their exhibit booth (#4858), Gateway will leverage its 25 years of experience in the industry to contribute to events throughout the week; as a Silver Sponsor for the Opening Reception, with Galaxy Pass and Membership features highlighted in the New Technology Showcase and serving as an expert panelist in two educational sessions.
Gateway will take advantage of both the trade show and conference to contribute to industry dialogue and soak up information about industry trends. Gateway representatives will be panelists on both the “Interactive IT and Technology Trends” and the “Admission Fraud/Loss Prevention & Theft Best Practices” panels. The “Interactive IT and Technology Trends” panel will feature Gateway Director of Product, Marcus Lopez. Lopez will draw on his decade of experience in the Attraction and Amusement industries to share his insight on ticketing and mobile solutions and how they can be used to optimize guest experiences and improve operational efficiency at venues.
Gateway Project Manager, Britt Thompson, will join other industry experts in the “Admission Fraud/Loss Prevention & Theft Best Practices” panel to speak on topics ranging from ticketing scams to employee collusion to identify the most common types of fraud, how to mitigate fraud and how to create a fraud prevention solution that is both venue and customer friendly.
In addition to the educational session participation, Gateway has a team of customers, prospects and employees registered for the IAAPA Footprints from the Heart 5K Run/1K Walk Benefiting Give Kids the World charity event. Along with Brightstar Partners and ParTech, Gateway will also be hosting an evening of food, fun and conversation during the week.
President and CEO, Michael Andre, is excited about Gateway’s increased presence this year at IAAPA: “These events not only showcase our industry expertise, but also highlight our dedication to the Attractions and Amusement industries. They provide a forum to discuss trends in ticketing, business intelligence and revenue management and allow us a valuable opportunity to connect with our customers and prospects face-to-face.”
