Bob Beatty Wins Ticketing Titan Award

FUTURETIX Chooses the Inaugural John P. Buschhorn Ticketing Titan Award Recipient!

Chicago, IL –November 17, 2015 – Long time ticketing veteran Bob Beatty was chosen as the first-ever recipient of the FuturteTix John P. Buschhorn Ticketing Titan Award.

“We were delighted to recognize two iconic ticketing professionals at our annual FutureTix Ticket Symposium.” says Dan DeMato, Founder of FutureTix “We are privileged to honor John’s memory and his exemplary career by recognizing one of the current leaders in our industry, Bob Beatty”.

John Buschhorn’s ticketing career began in 1977 when he became the NY Cosmos ticketing manager. “Buschie”, as he was known to his many industry friends, subsequently became VP & General Manager for Ticketmaster’s East Region covering from Virginia to Maine. He worked closely with Fred Rosen in what many call the “wild, wild west days” of ticketing. One day the New York Jets were seeking someone to run their ticketing department. Buschie was an ideal fit, and so began a 14 year career with the Jets. When the Jets offices moved from Long Island to New Jersey John took a Director’s position at MSG. A little known fact is that before ticketing, John was a NYC Police Officer for four years.

John was a mentor to so many; he was a charismatic character and his stories and good humor brought smiles to all that knew him. To know John was to love John. We were all saddened when Buschhie succumbed to complications from an illness earlier this year.

The John P. Buschhorn Ticketing Titan Award will be given annually to a long term ticketing professional that has exhibited the same Leadership, Integrity and Excellence that John embodied. The original 1960 name of John’s beloved New York Jets football team was the New York Titans.

Bob Beatty, our Inaugural recipient has been in the ticketing business for over 45 years. By conservative estimates he has been involved in the sale of over 150 million tickets. He currently oversees ticketing operations for Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the Beacon Theatre, the Chicago Theater and the Forum at Inglewood.
In the true spirit of the award, Bob is a leader and mentor to many. He has the respect of his peers and never forgets the front line ticket selling windows from whence he came. He is an industry innovator that has time and respect for everyone he comes in contact within his daily business life.

“It is a great thrill for me to be honored in this way by my peers especially in the name of my dear friend and colleague John Buschhorn”… said Bob Beatty… “I would like to thank FutureTix and Dan DeMato for this wonderful recognition and particularly for honoring the memory of Buschie, the original Ticketing Titan. By presenting this award annually FutureTix will be perpetuating John’s memory and contribution to the industry that he loved so much”.

The John P. Buschhorn Ticketing Titan Award will be presented annually at the FutureTix Ticketing Symposium which brings together ticketing professionals to discuss trending topics and is held in a different city each year.
