Christy Kerekes Honored with Industry Ticketing Award
Christy Kerekes, Senior Box Office Manager for Select-A-Seat at INTRUST Bank Arena, has been named a 2022 VenuesNow Ticketing Star. Each January, VenuesNow honors box office professionals for excellence in the ticketing industry, whether it’s a new innovation that has improved the ticket-buying experience, or an idea that leads to a bump in revenue.
During the past six months, Christy has successfully taken the lead on Select-A-Seat ticketing builds at INTRUST Bank Arena and Wichita Orpheum Theatre, including the 2021-22 Wichita Thunder hockey season, the 2022 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Regional Rounds and a nearly sold-out Morgan Wallen concert. In 2021, Christy also assisted with the creation of new initiatives to sell add-on experiences for INTRUST Bank Arena events. Additionally, Christy was instrumental during the pandemic in the Arena’s effort to cover seats and create socially distanced seating configurations for guests.
“Christy’s knowledge of ticketing and experience with Select-A-Seat is a huge asset to our team,” said AJ Boleski, General Manager. “Being recognized as a 2022 Ticket Star by VenuesNow is a well-deserved recognition and we look forward to seeing her continued growth within both the industry and ASM Global.”
VenuesNow is a trade publication covering live entertainment venues across the globe. Winners will be honored during the INTIX Conference in Orlando, Fla. later this month.
