(Newport, RI and San Diego, CA) The Newport Festivals Foundation partnered with LENND to power critical box office operations for the 2017 Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals®.
As part of a multi-year initiative to streamline festival operations and create more logistical efficiencies, the Newport Festivals team transitioned from their legacy system to LENND’s fully integrated platform, synchronizing their complementary ticket and credential request workflow with LENND and Eventbrite (the Festival's ticketing partner).
According to the festival’s long-time Ticketing Operations and Project Manager, Deb Girard, “the transition to LENND has helped streamline things to the point where our team has more time to focus other critical aspects of the festival. It’s incredible how software and technology can help a team like ours. We’re excited to leverage LENND even more this year”.
When asked why the Newport Festival Team chose to work with LENND instead of any other system, Girard said, “The user-friendly design and the flexibility of their platform, are critical and really fits our needs. We also really value the LENND team. It feels like true partnership.”
“The partnership with the Newport Festivals team has been incredible. We appreciate how committed they are to innovation and improving their systems. It's no wonder they continue .” says Co-Founder and CTO Josh Parolin.
When asked how likely they are to refer LENND to a friend or colleague (1 being not likely and 10 being extremely likely), the Newport Team answered, “We would say 9 because nobody should be perfect lol! We chose the Lennd team for their passion, quality and commitment to provide us with the best product in the business!”
"It’s our mission to transform the world of event production. We truly believe the Modern Event Team needs the latest and best technology to help construct incredible experiences for fans,” said LENND Co-Founder & CEO, Chris Carver.
The sold-out 2017 Newport Folk Festival took place July 28-30 at historic Fort Adams State Park and the Newport Jazz Festival presented by Natixis Global Asset Management was the following weekend, August 4-6, at Fort Adams and the International Tennis Hall of Fame at the Newport Casino.
