Launching today, Skiddle’s ’25 under 25′ scheme is open to all young and ‘would be’ promoters and event managers under the age of 25, who have successfully executed a minimum of one event between the start of the competition on Monday September 15th and the end on Sunday December 14th.
Skiddle is one of the UK’s largest primary ticketing agencies, listing and selling tickets for tens of thousands of events throughout the UK. Since their inception in 2001 they have continued to lead in the events field, placing special emphasis on supporting promoters and event managers throughout every stage of the planning. From their own personally-appointed account managers to their user-friendly interface, marketing and editorial services, Skiddle has helped thousands of young and amateur promoters sell-out events across the country and establish themselves as the talent of tomorrow.
It is this notion that has lead Skiddle to set-up the ’25 under 25′ initiative. After years of working with bright individuals, the ticketing platform felt it is time to highlight these stars and make the industry step up and notice.
Ben Sebborn, co-founder and director of Skiddle commented, “I am delighted to launch the 25 under 25 scheme! We work with hundreds of individual promoters every single day, many of which are hugely talented in what they do and make-up the core of nightlife in their communities – it’s about time they got some recognition. Skiddle is all about assisting the next generation of talent from the very beginning, whether it be students or just amateur promoters. You never know, we may just find the next Rob da Bank or Harry Goldstein!”
To enter applicants will be required to provide evidence of at least one successfully executed event between the opening and closing date and must have sold a minimum of 20 tickets with Skiddle to be eligible. Applicants will also have to answer a series of questions to be judged by a host of industry experts including Skiddle’s very own directors. A shortlist of 25 applicants will be drawn with one overall winner being announced in the new year. The winner will receive a full ticket promotion package for a year, mentoring from industry experts, plus tickets to fantastic events and merchandise.
