The Shorty Awards honor the best people and organizations on Twitter. These unique awards are for the Twitter community, by the Twitter community.
This year the Shorty Awards will be held at the TheTimesCenter in The New York Times Tower, located in the Times Square area of Manhattan.
The ceremony will be hosted by CNN anchor Rick Sanchez.
William Shatner will congratulate all the winners via video.
All tickets include an open bar and hors d'oeuvres.
The Shorty Awards' ceremony and cocktail event will bring together many of the top Twitter content creators under one roof. You can watch video and read about last year's ceremony.
Please note that the live awards ceremony will take place in the theatre only, and only a very limited number of seats are available for sale at the above rates. If you miss out on buying one of these seats, or you prefer to just attend the cocktail party, you may purchase our Cocktail-only tickets and still be part of the event. We will stream the ceremony down to the Cocktail Party room (TheHall) so you will be able to view it from a screen, and everyone will end up at the cocktail party after the ceremony ends in the theatre.
Early bird tickets will be available until February 14 after which the prices for the Theater and cocktail ticket will jump to $105 and the Cocktail only tickets will jump to $65. Capacity is limited so be sure to purchase your tickets as soon as possible!
Ticket refunds will not be available after February 22.
