CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2014) - Gold Coast Tickets, Chicago's largest premier ticket source, celebrates 20 years of business in 2014. To celebrate the occasion, Gold Coast will be running special promotions and giveaways for customers throughout the year.
Beginning in 1994, partner Max Waisvisz founded Gold Coast Tickets, mainly relying on connections he made throughout the community to acquire and sell tickets. With many other small brokers competing in the area, Gold Coast put itself on the map by offering tickets to the hottest events across the United States. Strong customer service and a growing client-base allowed Gold Coast to grow annually since the days of storing tickets in shoeboxes. Today, Gold Coast is a national supplier, achieving its best gross revenue year in 2013. With over 30 employees, a location in Chicago's West Loop, and an award-winning website, Gold Coast Tickets looks to maintain success for years to come.
"Our customers are the key reason we've continued our growth and expanded at this rate," said partner Max Waisvisz. "We owe it to them for trusting us with all of their ticket needs. What better way to celebrate 20 years than give back to the people who make us great?"
The three partners at Gold Coast Tickets (Waisvisz, Dan Finkel, and Seth Sharrin) set precedents for the ticket industry. Gold Coast Tickets was a founding pioneer of ticket software that is now used industry-wide. They became the first ticket broker in the Midwest to partner with a Major League Baseball team, the Chicago White Sox, and today enjoy a corporate sponsorship with Northwestern Athletics. Gold Coast regularly partners with Fortune 500 and local companies.
Gold Coast Tickets begins promotions in February with a "20 Years, 20 Tickets" giveaway including tickets to concerts, theater and sporting events across Chicago. To receive updates on upcoming promotions and events, follow Gold Coast Tickets on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
