Chinook Winds Casino Resort Secures E-Ticket Sponsorship
Earlier this month, Chinook Winds Casino Resort was successful in their bid to become the 2012 Newport Seafood & Wine Festival Presenting Sponsor. Now in a rare move, they have taken on the responsibility of the E-Ticket Sponsorship as well. The Newport Chamber of Commerce is delighted to be working with such a generous community partner. Both the Chamber of Commerce and Chinook Winds Casino Resort which are located in Lincoln County realize the extreme benefit that the Seafood & Wine Festival brings to the central Oregon Coast during the winter months.
Each year, on-line ticketing has increased in popularity because of easy access to the Festival tent. For Festival attendees, a dedicated gate for E-Ticket holders means “no waiting in line” to gain entrance to the venue. Fire marshal requirements demand that only a specific number of people may be inside the tent at any given time. In the past, this meant that those waiting to purchase tickets at the gate might have to wait until tent numbers dropped. E-Ticket holders have the advantage of being “counted” for the day, meaning they can enter the tent, regardless of which the time of day they arrive.
For the first time ever, this year’s E-Ticket will feature a special item. In addition Festival admittance, a voucher will be included that may be redeemed at Chinook Winds Casino Resort. The Newport Chamber of Commerce is pleased with Chinook Winds’ efforts to make an E-Ticket purchase so beneficial.
You may now buy tickets by logging on to www.newportchamber.org. Tickets for Thursday’s premier opening are selling fast. Limited sales are available for that evening, so if you are planning to attend this exclusive showing of the Festival, early purchase is recommended.
