TicketLeap Re-Launches With Powerful Social Platform for Live Entertainment Events

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Jun 25, 2012) - Today TicketLeap re-launches with a sleek new brand and an even more powerful social platform for live entertainment events of all sizes. The new TicketLeap completely rethinks the live entertainment experience. Built from the ground up with a focus on the live entertainment industry, it directly addresses some of the biggest pain points faced by event organizers, artists and fans.

Event organizers and artists alike are frustrated with the costs and inefficiencies of online ticketing; now they can take back control of their events with TicketLeap's smart, seamless ticketing solution. Fans want to be more social; now they can connect with Facebook or Twitter to share where they're going and what they're experiencing with old friends and new ones they meet at events.

"TicketLeap has been hard at work building a seamless, powerful platform for live entertainment events that puts venues and even individual artists or performers in the driver's seat, instead of the ticket broker," said Chris Stanchak, founder and CEO of TicketLeap. "Our new company branding and redesigned venue pages reflect our philosophy that live entertainment should be a fun and social experience, both online and in-person."

So what's new? Well, a whole lot. To start, TicketLeap's platform is even more powerful than ever before, offering a series of new features for event organizers including a completely refreshed, all-in-one destination site to host ticket sales for every event. Interactive calendars, maps, online seating charts and social feeds make these new event pages pop for customers looking to buy tickets or check out what's going on. Plus, customers can purchase for multiple events all in one place, and let their friends know where they're going.

Behind the scenes, event organizers and marketers can build their own seating charts and dig into best-in-class analytics that give juicy details on the effectiveness of email and social campaigns, making it much easier to adjust strategy on the fly and sell out events. TicketLeap also offers a complete mobile box office for iOS and Android-powered mobile phones and tablets so organizers can check in ticket holders and sell tickets at the door.

"TicketLeap offers a ticketing experience that perfectly aligns with the forward-thinking, social events we strive to provide for our audience," said Nick Stuccio, producing director, Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe. "After years of using expensive legacy ticketing software, TicketLeap is what live arts and entertainment organizations everywhere have been waiting for: a cutting-edge, web-based ticketing solution that makes it easy to customize seating charts, sell tickets and spread the word about events. With TicketLeap, we spend less time worrying about selling tickets and more time putting on a high-quality festival."

With no upfront costs or extra charges for advanced features, TicketLeap is an affordable ticketing solution for all events. To get in on the next wave of ticketing, visit: www.ticketleap.com.
