It’s common for the 9:30 Club to leave music conferences with an award given their strength in the live events industry. Last week at the 25th Annual Pollstar Live conference in Nashville, they did it again. Our friends over at 9:30 and I.M.P. left with the “Nightclub of the Year” award for the second year in a row. Congrats on another well-deserved award, 9:30! 

Ticketfly’s team was on the ground at Pollstar meeting with the best in the industry, and our CEO Andrew Dreskin moderated the panel, “The Three M’s of Live Event Marketing: Mobile, Mavens, and Me-Commerce,” featuring none other than Donna Westmoreland of the 9:30 Club and I.M.P., along with representatives from AEG Live, Groupon Live, Yplan, and CAA. Chris Cobb from local Ticketfly partner Marathon Music Works was on a round table called “Surviving As A Concert Club,” and we threw a great opening mixer on Wednesday night with our friends at Square Peg Concerts.

Check out the photo below of “Sheriff” Dreskin wrangling his deputies into what Pollstar (article here for Pollstar subscribers) called both a rip-roaring good time and a “serious talk about marketing, the rise of mobile discovery, empowering loyal fans to spread the word, and personalizing event experiences on an individual basis.”

Thanks to Pollstar and everyone who rolled out the welcome mat for us in Music City!
