LEXINGTON, Ky. (2/22/13) – Lexington Center Corporation today announced the launch of its three redesigned websites: www.lexingtoncenter.com, www.rupparena.com and www.lexingtonoperahouse.com.
“This is a day that we have long anticipated; we are excited to unveil our newly redesigned websites, which have been under construction for the past 12 months. The new sites are more user-friendly, interactive and visually dynamic and we look forward to providing this enhanced online experience to patrons, promoters and meeting planners alike,” said CEO and President Bill Owen.
“We think our patrons will enjoy exploring the new sites through a fun online and on-site launch promotion we are sponsoring. It’s easy to enter and one lucky participant will win an incredible grand prize,” he continued.
Designed by carbonhouse, a design firm that specializes in venue websites, the new sites are aimed at showcasing the many events taking place at Lexington
Center’s five venues, while simultaneously serving the needs of patrons, meeting planners and promoters. The sites will be an important resource for all these user groups, with new features that include unique custom designs and easy navigation between venues, integration with social media such as Twitter,
Facebook, Instagram and RSS, comprehensive interactive calendars, maps and seating diagrams and mobile versions of each website.
In celebration of the new sites, and as an incentive to encourage patrons to visit them, the Lexington Center is announcing an exciting FIND YOUR SEAT promotional giveaway starting Friday, February 22 and running through March 22, 2013.
The grand prize for the promotion is two tickets to every public ticketed event (including basketball) at each of the Lexington Center venues, Rupp Arena, Lexington Opera House and Lexington Convention Center, for one calendar year starting April 1, 2013 through April 1, 2014. There are two ways to enter: Patrons may come to the Lexington Center and find one of the three seat platforms located in high-traffic locations within the Lexington Center.
