Martin Methodist Sport Management Students Participate in Ticket Sales Boot Camp
February 14, 2018February 11, 2018 – On Sunday afternoon, Martin Methodist College Sport Management students had the opportunity to learn from one of sports’ leading experts in ticket sales and customer service as part of an afternoon seminar. The event entitled Sports Industry Fast Pass “Boot Camp” was conducted by Marty Mulford, Senior Director of Service and Retention for the Nashville Predators. The 4-hour “Boot Camp” included lecture, discussion, interaction, and role-playing as students were introduced to the world of ticket sales and its importance within the sports industry. Tim Wilson, Assistant Professor of Sport Management, stated, “This event was something Marty and I have been working on since last semester. I was able to secure a Tennessee Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (TAHPERD) grant that provided the funds to bring him to our campus and allow our Sport Management students the opportunity to learn from one of the best. I want to thank TAHPERD for providing the funds and Marty for being willing to come on a Sunday afternoon and be with us. This was a great event for Martin Methodist Sport Management students”. The event provided the students an opportunity to hear first-hand what it takes to get into the sports industry and how ticket sales can be a great starting point. Dalton Searcy, a senior sport management student from Knoxville, Tennessee, added, “Mr. Mulford’s expertise and experience in the field provided great insight as to what it takes to get started on the sales side of the sports industry. I would like to thank Mr. Mulford, Mr. Wilson, and Martin Methodist for providing us this unique opportunity”.
