SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (September 9, 2014) – SpinGo, an event discovery and promotion platform connecting people with more than 125,000 monthly events, reports new growth, increased brand awareness, and award recognition throughout the summer of 2014. Since June, 80 new media partners have joined SpinGo's event promotion network including more than 30 Fox, CBS, ABC and NBC TV News Stations, Halifax Media Group, Boston.com, North Jersey Media Group, San Francisco Travel Association, and The Columbus Dispatch.
“The SpinGo team has been working harder than ever to deliver amazing results to our partners, end-users, and clients – that hard work is paying off,” said Kreg Peeler, SpinGo’s CEO. “With continual growth, funding and new projects on the horizon, we’re excited about the future that’s in store for SpinGo.”
Recently, SpinGo was recognized as one of the UVEF Top 25 Under 5 and Utah Business Magazine’s Companies To Watch. UVEF, also known as the Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum, is a volunteer non-profit support group providing real-world education and linking entrepreneurs to mentors, money and markets. Additionally, InfoCommerce named SpinGo as an InfoCommerce Model of Excellence, and will feature Peeler as an honoree and speaker at the Business Information and Media Summit in November.
In July, SpinGo worked to promote Country Explosion, held in Tooele, Utah. Country Explosion is a 4-day music festival that highlights some of country music’s top performers. This year’s star-studded lineup included new names to the performing business like Eastin Corbin and the Eli Young Band, as well as big names such as Rascal Faltts, Reba McIntire, Toby Keith and Florida Georgia Line.
“We loved what SpinGo brought to the table,” says Josh Wilson. “SpinGo contributed greatly to the success of this event. The exposure they provided us with brought in a larger audience, increased ticket sales, and generated significant buzz for this event. SpinGo is definitely a game changer in the event business and we can’t wait to see what we’ll do together in the coming years.”
