Fusion Nightclub has been shortlisted in the Best Live Event & Ticketing category at the 2013 eCommerce Awards for Excellence.
The awards, which are in their 5th year, are the definitive awards for the UK eCommerce industry. Previous winners include Argos, ASOS, PayPal and LoveFilm.com. Fusion is the only Guernsey business ever to have been shortlisted.
Fusion’s application focused on the club’s investment in their customised online ticket store; the only store of its kind for any venue in Guernsey along with upgrades to their website and membership scheme.
The application also highlighted the hugely successful DJ Fresh gig which was held in December 2012. The event saw nearly 83% of the tickets sold via the new online ticket store including 100 discounted “early-bird” tickets which sold out in just 35 minutes.
Fusion Nightclub owner Adam Burroughs said: “Being shortlisted for the 2013 eCommerce Awards for excellence is a huge achievement for Fusion Nightclub and we’re excited to fly the flag for Guernsey at the awards.”
“We have worked extremely hard over the last four years to continually innovate and develop the Guernsey entertainment sector ensuring we offer our customers the best experience both in the club and online. It’s fantastic that Fusion’s innovative approach to ticketing, online experience and investment in the club’s technology has been recognised by the eCommerce awards through this shortlisting.”
Deputy Kevin Stewart, Commerce and Employment Department Minister said: “This is a great achievement by the team at Fusion Nightclub – which is clearly a resourceful and innovative business.
“As well as being good for Fusion, it’s also good for Guernsey of course to be highlighted at a major awards ceremony such as this. Getting shortlisted for a national award proves that the Island is a great place for business to flourish and I wish them well for the next stage in the process.”
Fusion Nightclub is competing against Cheltenham Racecourse, Eventbrite and ticketscript in the Best Live Event & Ticketing category.
The eCommerce Awards for Excellence will take place at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on the 2nd October.
