NEW YORK, Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A boutique theatre ticket agency providing personal, expert service for 28 years, Applause Tickets has earned the respect of the New York City Association of Hotel Concierges (NYCAHC). At this year's Concierge Choice Awards, a production of the NYCAHC, the company was named the winner in the Best Entertainment Service category. For Founder Rich Gladstone, this recognition is proof that Applause Tickets is doing things the right way.
"I can wholeheartedly say that it is a great honor for our team to win the Concierge Choice Award for Best Entertainment Service in the ticket broker category. It is indeed a very special award and the acknowledgement from our city's finest hotel concierge community will not be soon forgotten," remarks Gladstone. "The concierge community is a vital link in the network of hospitality professionals working tirelessly to make the Big Apple such a great place to visit. It's our close relationship with those professionals that has allowed us to prosper."
Applause purchases Broadway tickets on behalf of concierge and hotel guests, but that's only part of the company's unique set of services. Gladstone and his team also provide expert advice based on many years of local knowledge. Concierge who work with Applause will always know which shows are the hottest tickets and where the ideal seats are in various theaters. The mission is to ensure the city's millions of annual visitors have a truly memorable experience. Concierge also trust that Applause secures the best possible deal on tickets without charging the outrageous commissions of some of the company's competitors.
With nearly four decades experience in this industry, Gladstone has made a conscious effort to differentiate Applause from the slew of online booking sites. He's done so by preserving the human element in every transaction. "I encourage all of our clients to talk to us and forge a real relationship," he says. "We have seen all the shows for which we're selling tickets, so we have a tremendous amount of insider knowledge that can't be replicated simply by browsing the web. Sharing that knowledge is what sets us apart from other agencies."
In addition to tickets to leading Broadway shows, Applause can also acquire tickets for sporting events, concerts and for the London theater. The company is fully licensed in the State of New York.
