DUBLIN, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The winners of the 2017 Ticketing Technology Awards were announced during a private ceremony at Croke Park in Dublin. The Ticketing Technology Awards are the only awards to recognize an entire spectrum of achievements from across the global ticketing industry. The awards ceremony took place during the Ticketing Technology Forum, in front of an audience of industry leaders.
"Congratulations to everyone who reached the podium," commented Ian Nuttall, founder of Ticketing Technology Awards. "Winners included our industry's leaders, achievers and stand-out innovators, who should all be very proud of their achievements."
Hundreds of nominations were whittled down to create the shortlist, judged by an independent panel of industry figures.
ExtremeTix's enhanced mobile experience was up against a shortlist of nominees from across the globe. We are very proud and honored that our team has received this award for the "Move to Mobile" category.
The judging panel commented: "Whilst nobody has completely solved the challenges of selling tickets via mobile devices, this product takes us one step closer by solving the Select-A-Seat challenge on a small screen in an effective way. And for that alone it stands above the rest…"
A testament to the success of the ExtremeTix mobile functionality is with the Texas Renaissance Festival's "Sale of the Century," an annual one-day sale in which 56% of over 93,000 tickets sold online in 12-hour period were purchased on mobile devices.
