"Ticket Qwest" is Back for the Western Conference Finals

Ticket Qwest is back with two pairs of courtside seats to game three of the Western Conference Finals, Lakers vs. Nuggets. For the Western Conference Finals Qwest is extending the Twitter-based program, it launched in the second round of the playoffs, to include Facebook, Tumblr and BriteKite to share clues with fans about how to win the coveted courtside seats.

“Qwest has found an innovative way to tap into the excitement in Denver around the first Nuggets playoffs run of this magnitude in 25 years,” said Rich Karlis, sponsorship director for Qwest. “Nuggets fans will have a high percentage shot at winning courtside tickets to game three, however, they will have to play along online and get out in the community if they want to rub elbows with Carmelo and crew as they take on the Lakers on Saturday.”
Here is the mission:
  • When: Saturday, May 23, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
  •  What: TicketQwest will be placing 20 Qwest-branded basketballs in the Denver/Boulder Area. Your mission is to find one of them.
