Salt Lake Comic Con and GrowTix Launch Share Rewards Affiliate Program

Share Rewards Affiliate Program Creates Crowdsourced Marketing Opportunity for Third Parties

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Salt Lake Comic Con™ (http://saltlakecomiccon.com/) and GrowTix™ (http://growtix.com) today launched the Share Rewards Affiliate Program, making it the first integrated ticketing, management and affiliate event platform for comic conventions, offering direct links to Salt Lake Comic Con tickets that generate paid commissions to fans and affiliate websites. The Share Rewards Affiliate Program will extend the social media contests that have propelled Salt Lake Comic Con to become the most attended convention of any kind in Utah and the largest first year comic con in North America.

“This program is clearly a win-win for Salt Lake Comic Con, our fans, media companies, industry websites and nonprofits that we work with to raise money for worthwhile causes,” said Bryan Brandenburg, Salt Lake Comic Con’s Chief Marketing Officer. “By creating this Share Rewards Affiliate Program with GrowTix, we’re expanding the reach and attendance of our convention. But more importantly, we are giving fans, site owners and nonprofits the ability to connect to one of the largest comic cons in the country, while earning tickets and income for sharing our world-class event.”

Salt Lake Comic Con and Dan Farr Productions have embraced and supported the nonprofit community by donating over $1 million in cash, tickets and sponsorships in the last 18 months. They have worked with nonprofit organizations like Operation Underground Railroad, Make a Wish, USARA, The Road Home, Millie’s Princess Foundation, Firemen and Friends for Kids, Ballet West, The Utah Symphony, First Step House, The Leonardo, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Utah, Boy Scouts of America, Huntsman Cancer Institute, The Legacy Initiative and the Salt Lake City Veterans Hospital. For a partial list of community partners that will benefit from this program go to the Community Partners page.

Fans and affiliates that sign up for the fan or commercial affiliate program (www.saltlakecomiccon.com/affiliate-program/) between now and April 30th will be automatically entered to win an exclusive VIP package for Salt Lake Comic Con 2015 that takes place September 24-26. This includes a pair of VIP tickets to the event, VIP tickets to the Red Carpet Party and an exclusive celebrity meet and greet.

“At GrowTix, we have built a rich platform focusing on several industry specific implementations in addition to providing world-class ticketing, consumer apps and event management tools,” said LeGrande Jolley, Director of Digital Product at GrowTix. “Share Rewards Affiliate Program is a singular gear in the machine that has been working to grow events all over North America, and we’re excited to launch this feature with Salt Lake Comic Con, one of the largest comic conventions in the country.”
