Until then, here are our top 5 highlights from #EtixBlast 2015:

1. Etix Live Workshops & Partner Sessions

Clients and partners attended multiple sessions, panels and workshops during Thursday’s Etix Live!, led by  Etix team members. Our Etix University team was joined by SEO and marketing experts from Rockhouse Partners, as well as partners EventBooking, LoyaltyMatch, MailChimp and Vivid Seats, to provide tips and insights on maximizing ticket sales and revenue at every event.

2. Taste of Raleigh at the Etix Office

We invited our guests to Etix headquarters for a behind the scenes look at the team behind the tickets. Our guests had the opportunity to not only meet the entire Etix team, but to also meet our digital marketing agency team, Rockhouse Partners. We also had many partners on hand, to discuss the ways our clients benefit from their offerings. To top off the day, we enjoyed some local cuisine from two of our favorite food trucks and tasted Smooth Ambler Spirits at our own Etix Bar.

3. Etix VIP tent at the Hopscotch Music Festival

We couldn’t think of a more appropriate place for our guests to network than at the Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, NC. Our guests and partners joined us in the VIP tent near the main stage for refreshments and fun as we enjoyed the live music of TV on The Radio, Dwight Yoakam, X and more.

4. Night of 1,000 Empanadas

This year’s Empanada Party exceeded expectations! Calavera Empanadas & Tequila Bar provided amazing food and great music. If that wasn’t enough, MailChimp sent their signature Freddie the chimp hats, which never fail to bring smiles to party-goers. The Night of 1,000 Empanadas is a tradition here to stay.

5. Bloody Mary Brunch on the Red Hat Amphitheater Stage

From the delicious french toast to the beautiful view of the Cree Shimmer Wall from the Red Hat Amphitheater stage, the Bloody Mary Brunch was the perfect way to close out the weekend in a relaxing atmosphere.  To top it off, Michael Casey stopped by to ‘wow’ us with his incredible card tricks. He never ceases to amaze us!
