Personalized Calendars at the Patron Technology Conference

Patron Technology Conference in NYC August 26-27-28, 2015

booth 1The conference showcased Patron Technology software, a CRM that assists venues with ticketing, fund raising and salesforce which keeps the user on the cusp of technology. Worldwide Ticketcraft was fortunate to have a table directly outside the presentation rooms, which lead to a great deal of exposure. Our table of goods was quite colorful as we exhibited many different printed items that each user could order and use. Items included custom thermal ticket stock, generic blank tickets, parking hang tags, brochures, bro-voices, rack cards, gift cards – and more.


One of the highlights included the items we printed and handed out to each attendee – a personalized calendar that offered the recipient’s name incorporated into each of the 12 month’s photos. At one point we had more than 50 people surrounding the table looking for their calendars and admitting how wonderful it was to see the items they could use in their venue that did not even know – existed. Our personalized calendar will soon be available for purchase on our Ticket Chefs website and available to everyone!

Another important highlight included the presentation that Erik Covitz, our CEO & President conducted, with an accompanying power point for all to see, based on the importance of personalization for our patrons. During the presentation, we handed out additional samples and information.

In the end we educated and met a lot of potential clients who will no doubt use our printed products in the weeks and months ahead. It was a great event with new friends and familiar faces.


29th Annual Teacher of the Year Awards!

RotaryBook2015_CoverWorldwide Ticketcraft had the honor to produce and print the program guide for the Rotary Club of Boca Raton Sunrise – 29th Annual Teacher of the Year Award ceremony. Each year 22 teachers from Boca Raton public schools in Palm Beach County, Florida, are recognized for their accomplishments in the class room. This illustrious event has grown from its inception of a small group, to over 200 people this year.

The program guide consists of paid donation ads, letters from each schools’ principal and a list of Teachers who have been recognized in past years. The guide was a success and well accepted by all.
TOY_RotaryBocaRatonSunrise-3287The gala event was generously offered by the Office Depot Foundation to be held at the Office Depot auditorium in Boca Raton which was a fitting venue and very well staged. A former local TV news anchor, Claudia Shea in her new role as host presenter for the Palm Beach Educational Network was master of ceremonies.  A camera crew filmed the entire evening festivities and streamed them so family members outside our local community could watch the event live from their home computers.

TOY_RotaryBocaRatonSunrise-28763The night opened with a scrumptious dinner followed by welcoming remarks from the President of the Boca Sunrise Rotary – Ira “Rusty” Herschbein. The stage then welcomed Frank A. Barbieri, Jr., Esq. – Vice Chairman on the School Board of Palm Beach County, who introduced each teacher who was nominated. A short movie clip of each teacher was displayed on a massive screen before each walked onto the stage, which was quite emotional to see their devotion to the children during a normal school day.

TOY_RotaryBocaRatonSunrise-3321The teacher recognized as best in their school this night were, Chris Amico, Jonathan Benskin, Charisse Cason, Katie Delucia, Lisa Drescher, Lori Eaton, Dawn Esposito, Jennifer Hammer, Alicia Kaucher, Alexandra Laing, Courtney Lockhart, Ana Millet, Suzette Milu, Charna Rosenfeld, Beth Rubin, Denise Rudy, Jane Simonsen, Doris Vaillancourt-Milano, Kristy Verzaal, Lori Vetter, Cheryl Walling, and Ellen Winikoff on receiving this year’s Teacher of the Year Award.

In the end everyone left on a high note knowing that a good deed was done in giving something back to the teachers that educate and mold the children and future of our community – and beyond.
