IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 7, 2005 -- Gettix.Net, a wholly owned and operated subsidiary of publicly held Global Entertainment, and Paciolan announced the signing of a multi-year partnership today. Global Entertainment is both an integrated entertainment and sports company, and an arena development and licensing company with five subsidiaries: CHL Hockey league, International Coliseums Company, Global Entertainment Marketing Systems, Gettix.Net, and Crager Industries, Inc. Through the partnership, Paciolan will provide ticketing solutions for all Gettix.Net properties including Global Entertainment venues.

The new comprehensive ticketing system enables Global Entertainment venues to sell tickets across all distribution channels via an integrated back-end patron database. The Paciolan system also enables Gettix.Net to leverage state-of-the-art Internet-based ticketing that allows all venues' fans and patrons to purchase and manage their tickets across multiple channels.

Gettix.Net will maintain complete ownership of their fan data through a centralized database including ticket purchase history, demographic data, as well as attendance data to gain a 360-degree view of their fans. Gettix.Net runs a state of the art phone room, online sales, and outlets enabling them to manage consistent messaging to their fans and patrons across all touch points.
