On Wednesday, November 29, Rep. Sampson toured TicketNetwork in South Windsor with Sen. Markley. TicketNetwork is a leader in the secondary ticketing industry (coming in third behind Stub Hub and Ticketmaster). Rep. Sampson was invited by Evan Honeyman, Director of Business Development, who grew up in Sampson’s district. The visit included a tour of the facility where they were shown the 24 hour call center and the wide variety of operations at TicketNetwork including Ticket Galaxy and RCN Capital. He spoke with Donald Vaccaro, Co-Founder and CEO about their operations and some legislative issues they have faced over the years. He also spoke with Darnell Goldson, Director of Governmental and Legislative Affairs, as well as Mike Honeyman, COO. TicketNetwork also provides their employees with complimentary breakfasts, lunches and dinners at their Staff Caff, along with a gym and laundry area as an additional benefit to working for the company.
TicketNetwork is a prime example of entrepreneurship at its best. Rep. Sampson will continue to advocate on behalf of businesses in the state to ensure that they face minimal obstacles to success.
