The last few years have shown the importance and vitality of in-person events for our communities. Grandstand was humbled to be a part of so many of these events in 2022, both the many that were brand new to us and that have been old friends. We served organizations of all sizes with apps that enhanced guest experiences at events and improved communication options for groups.
New clients included major state fairs, including the Arizona State Fair, the Ohio State Fair, and the New Mexico State Fair. We also saw huge growth in our music festival partners. We added large music festivals like Solid Sound and Nova Scotia Music Week, large international festivals like Festival Estereo de Picnic in Bogota, Columbia, as well as destination music festivals like Strings & Sol, Holy Shipwrecked and The Sands. Grandstand also continued to see lots of growth amongst state and county 4-H & FFA programs. Finally, tourism was a large growth area for Grandstand in 2022 with the addition of city- and region-specific event/tourism apps.
All of this was made possible by our powerful app platform that saw major enhancements in 2022. Here are a just a few things we brought to many of our apps in 2022:
All of this amazing app content is driven by our easy-to-use admin tool that was made easier to use in 2022. Here are a few new features specific to Grandstand Admin:
