VEGAS.COM INNOVATES WITH NEW MULTIMEDIA SEARCH FOR LAS VEGAS SHOWS
(LAS VEGAS, May 20, 2008) -- VEGAS.com, the #1 seller of Las Vegas show tickets, announces a new interface for its Las Vegas shows page, designed to help customers easily find, view and select Vegas entertainment. Best-of-breed multimedia technology and search capabilities enhance what was already a sophisticated show search application for the largest number of Las Vegas shows available from one source on the internet. VEGAS.com leads the way by being the first to introduce such an advanced online ticketing and search platform.
"We've been studying online consumer behavior for years," said Howard Lefkowitz, president of VEGAS.com. "Vegas offers a remarkably wide and diverse choice of shows, from headliners and afternoon magic to sexy showgirls. We're making sure our customers have the right tools to make an informed choice and easily book their preferred tickets."
VEGAS.com's new interface displays within one window all the necessary information a visitor needs to make a decision: expert, in-depth reviews and details like age restrictions and show length; enhanced video previews for a sneak peak before buying tickets; and venue maps including seating descriptions and clearly outlined show time availability choices. As part of the newly streamlined process, customers are able to search for any date and see available shows in Las Vegas, reviews and videos without leaving their search and navigating page after page.
On average there are more than 100 shows in Las Vegas playing at the same time. From comedy shows like Carrot Top and Wayne Brady, to adult-oriented shows like Fantasy and Folies Bergere there are shows for everyone. Family friendly shows like Nathan Burton's Comedy Magic and Gregory Popovich's Comedy PetTheater are a blast for the kids while headliners like Elton John, Cher and Barry Manilow always draw huge crowds. For big production shows there are a multitude to choose from including: Le Rêve, Blue Man Group and KA Cirque du Soleil.
