Jim Zissler Named 2012 Top Specialist For Hard-to-Get Tickets For Sporting & Cultural Events By Conde Nast Traveler For The 2nd Year In A Row

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jim Zissler, Senior Vice President at Inside Sports & Entertainment Group, the premier provider of exclusive ticket, travel, and experience packages to major events worldwide, has been chosen by Conde Nast Traveler, the nation's leading travel magazine, as the top "Specialist for Hard-to-Get Tickets for Sporting & Cultural Events" in this year's annual "Travel Specialists List" issue. First named a "Top Specialist" in 2011, this the second year Zissler has been honored by Conde Nast.

According to the magazine's citation: "Have your eye on a major event, say a championship tournament or once in a lifetime concert, where nabbing a ticket may seem out of the reach of mere mortals? Whether it's the Super Bowl, Sundance Film Festival or London Fashion Week, Zissler will make sure you're not only in the door, but in the best seats and more than likely meeting the artists and athletes."

Having published its list of the Top 100 Travel Specialists around the world for the past 12 years, 2011 is the first time that Conde Nast has included "Sports Events" as a specialist category. Indeed, according to a 2010 NY Times article on the subject: New studies of consumer buying habits show that spending money for an "experience," for example, tickets to a sporting or entertainment event, produces longer lasting satisfaction than spending on material objects.

Zissler, 33, a graduate of Syracuse University, has spent most of his career at InsideSEG, joining soon after its founding in 2005 after a stint with MLB's San Diego Padres.  He is known for his unique expertise in identifying and executing high touch experiences around ultra-premium offerings for both the consumer and corporate marketplaces.

About InsideSEGInside Sports & Entertainment Group ( is the leading provider of premium tickets and VIP travel packages to the most exclusive sports and entertainment events worldwide. The company is an "Official NFL On Location Partner" and was recently chronicled in major features in the New York Times and the CBS Morning Show.
