(Wichita, Kan.) – The SMG-managed INTRUST Bank Arena entered the top 5 for the first time and ranked 5th among mid-size venues in the most recent edition of the Venues Today Social Media Power 100 Chart, released in their November issue. The chart ranks venues’ social media reach using a number of publicly available data points. The November chart focused on four social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Instagram.

“Our team had a goal to achieve a ranking in the top 5 for social media this year,” said SMG Director of Sales & Marketing, Christine Pileckas. “Achieving that goal is a great reward for our department as we continually put more time and effort into growing our social media and providing engaging, interactive content for our fans. We just kicked off our 3rd Annual 12 Days of Entertainment promotion on our Facebook page and are seeing a great response from the fans.”

Venues Today prequalifies more than 400 venues for consideration and weights scores for venue size and market size. This chart uses a weighted ranking curve so readers can quickly compare engagement within their own size category. INTRUST Bank Arena falls in the 10,001 to 15,000 capacity category and ranked 5th within the category. Venues in the 10,001 to 15,000 capacity include Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Denver), Millennium Park (Chicago) and Bryce Jordan Center (University Park).
