Whirlwind Media Tour Helps Launch Ticket Sales

Ambassador-Program-finalFrom September 3 to September 5, Olympic ice dancers Maia and Alex Shibutani traveled across much of North Carolina in an exciting statewide media tour to help kick off single-session ticket sales for the 2015 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships. The tour got off to a unique start when the ShibSibs agreed to split up (!), and start the tour with Alex to the east in the  Raleigh market and Maia to the west in Charlotte. The two were reunited in the center of the state, in the greater Greensboro area, where the Championships will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, January 17-25, 2015. 

During the tour, the Shibutani's put in special guest appearances at Carolinas Figure Skating Club in Indian Trial and Summit Figure Skating Club in Greensboro. Maia and Alex were joined by Olympian and 2015 U.S. Championships Honorary Chairman Paul Wylie and warmly greeted by skaters and parents. The sibling team told the audience they have a goal of capturing the U.S. ice dance championship in Greensboro in 2015, and they encouraged everyone to come out and support them in that effort.

Another key component of the tour involved numerous media interviews, which were assisted by Renee Felton and Mimi Whetstone of U.S. Figure Skating's communications department. Special thanks go out to Diamond Media Partners WFMY News 2 and The News & Record and Platinum Partner Clear Channel for their interviews. In addition, Fox Carolinas, WBTV (CBS), Time Warner Cable News, WCNC (NBC) and the Charlotte Observer in the Charlotte market; and WNCN (NBC), Fox50, WPTF Radio and the NC News Network in the Raleigh market did interviews. WGHP Fox 8 and TWC News also participated in the Triad market.

The Shibutani visit concluded with a special stop at the Greensboro Coliseum Box Office, where they personally greeted those in line to purchase tickets Friday morning as individual tickets went on sale. Platinum Media Partner Clear Channel Radio provided on site music while new Official Supplier Krispy Kreme kept all those in the box office area happy with hot coffee and doughnuts. Ticket buyers were thrilled as Maia and Alex posed for photos, signed autographs and presented the early birds in line with special prizes.
