Lexington Center Launches Redesigned Websites

lexington conv center 300LEXINGTON, 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. They must take their photo seated in one of the seats, send in the photo via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #FindYourSeat. The photo will be uploaded to the websites and they will automatically be entered to win. No purchase is necessary however, all entrants must be 18 years or older to qualify.
 
A second way to enter the FIND YOUR SEAT promotion is to visit any one of the three new websites and locate the seat icon hidden within the pages of each. Once located, visitors can click on the icon, which will link to an entry form. No purchase is necessary however all entrants must be 18 years or older to qualify. One winner will be announced on April 2, 2013.
 
The Lexington Center is a sports, entertainment and convention complex located in the heart of downtown Lexington, Kentucky. Five venues make up the Lexington Center: Rupp Arena (home of the University of Kentucky Wildcats); the 130,000 square-foot Lexington Convention Center; the historic Lexington Opera House; the Shops at Lexington Center, featuring locally owned boutiques; and Triangle Park, an inviting space renowned for its cascading fountains.
