Tickets.com Signs Long-Term Ticketing Agreement With the Erie County Convention Center Authority and erieevents.com

The ProVenue® Platform Will Power the Multi-Venue Ticketing Operation

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2011) - Tickets.com -- a leading global provider of integrated, high-performance ticketing solutions -- announces the addition of the multi-venue Erie County Convention Center Authority (ECCCA) to its client list. The new partnership centers on ProVenue, Tickets.com's technologically advanced, web-based ticketing platform.

"We needed a proven platform that would support our regional infrastructure and help us grow," said Casey Wells, Executive Director, ECCCA. "Ultimately, we want to have complete control of our customer's experience and that starts with a solid ticketing platform. Tickets.com understands our vision and we are excited to partner with them."

The ECCCA's Tullio Arena, Warner Theater, Bayfront Convention Center and Jerry Uht BallPark will transition to the ProVenue platform later this spring. Both the Tullio Arena and Warner Theatre will enjoy extensive renovations in the next two years, significantly improving the homes of the Erie Otters (OHL), Erie Bayhawks (NBDL), Erie Storm (SIFL) and the Erie Broadway Series.

"Casey and the entire ECCCA team evaluated the alternatives and we are pleased that they have chosen ProVenue and Tickets.com to achieve their business goals," added Ed Gow, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Tickets.com. "They are true entrepreneurs, aggressively seeking ways to grow their revenue and increase operational control. We look forward to a long and successful partnership."

The ECCCA's selection of the ProVenue solution adds to Tickets.com's strong portfolio of regional ticketing companies; including MyTicketOffice.com, SelectASeat.com, TicketStarOnline.com, ICtickets.com, ProTixOnline.com and Mercer Ticket Sales.

Tickets for all ECCCA events will remain available through www.erieevents.com or by calling the box office at 814-452-4857.
