By September 24, 2015 Events No Comments

200 Industry Professionals. 139 Bands. 11 Partners. 3 Days. 1 incredible event! #EtixBlast 2015 was our most successful summit yet, and it’s all because of you. Thank you to everyone who attended, partnered and participated in this year’s event! We hope to see everyone back in 2016.

1. Etix Live Sessions & Workshops

The Etix and Rockhouse Partners teams, along with our partners hosted a wide variety of educational sessions, panels and workshops during Thursday’s Etix Live. We were proud to be joined by our friends and partners at EventBooking, LoyaltyMatch, MailChimp and Vivid Seats, who helped provide tips and insights on maximizing ticket sales and driving revenue for events.


2. Taste of Raleigh & Office Tour at Etix

We invited our attendees to the Etix HQ for a behind-the-scenes look at our team and office space. Guests had the chance to meet both Etix and Rockhouse teams, plus tour the inner-workings of our sales, client services, marketing and customer support groups. We also had partners on hand to answer questions and offer product demos. The day was made even better by the food trucks offering local cuisine in our parking lot and beverages provided by our friends at Smooth Ambler Spirits.

3. Etix VIP Tent Party at Hopscotch Music Festival

We couldn’t think of a better place to host a party for Etix Blast attendees than at Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh. Our guests and partners joined us in the VIP tent near the main stage for refreshments, snacks and a little bit of magic as we enjoyed the live music of TV on The Radio, Dwight Yoakam and more.

4. Night of 1,000 Empanadas

An annual favorite of Etix Blast continues to be our Night of 1,000 Empanadas at Calavera Empanadas & Tequila Bar. If great food and live music weren’t enough, MailChimp was kind enough to bring some killer swag for our party-goers, including their famous “Freddie the chimp” hats.

5. Bloody Mary Brunch

From the delicious food to the beautiful view of Cree Shimmer Wall from the Red Hat Amphitheater stage, Saturday’s Bloody Mary Brunch was the perfect way to end the weekend. An added bonus was when Michael Casey (aka “Magic Mike”) returned to wow the crowd with more card tricks.
