COSTA MESA, CA and BUFFALO, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 16, 2012) - Tickets.com, provider of state-of-the-art technology solutions to over 1,000 sports and entertainment clients around the world and the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts, today announced a new partnership agreement centralized on ProVenue.
"The Center for the Arts remains committed to keeping ticket prices affordable in Western New York, and the fight against rising ticketing service charges is central to that mission," states Joel Thompson, Director of Ticket Operations for the Center. "This new partnership with Tickets.com allows us to move forward with no fee increases in the foreseeable future, allowing our patrons the best opportunity to see the great entertainment they've come to expect from our stages at reasonable prices."
Tickets.com has served the collegiate and arts markets for many years, however the newer, industry-leading ProVenue platform has been primarily operating in regional ticketing as well as the sports (major and minor league) markets until now. This win celebrates the first foray for the platform in the University Arts segment. It is also one of many conversions to ProVenue in the upstate New York region in recent years, giving Tickets.com a strong presence in the area.
"We are excited to grow a partnership with The University at Buffalo," says Dan Archabal, Vice President of Business Development for Tickets.com. "Tickets.com is committed to the wider Niagara region with plans to continue growth in the area. Working with UB is a natural extension of our other regional partnerships, most notably with Western New York promoter Funtime Presents. A partnership between the Center for the Arts and Funtime can now be envisioned, adding increased exposure to the great entertainment they offer to Western New York."
