Tickets and entertainment – new global relationships

Ten has recently extended its ticketing relationships with major ticketing brokers, box offices and venue owners in the US, UK, South Africa and China.
 
In the US, we are working with several major nationwide ticket brokers, offering the best access to the tickets our members want to buy. An announcement will be made in the next newsletter with more details, so watch this space.
 
In the UK, we are launching ‘primary box office intelligence’ on our online concierge platform. Using the same logic our specialist lifestyle managers follow, the system selects the box office for the event according to which has the biggest allocation of tickets for that particular artist or venue, and usually the lowest booking fee. An integrated and fee-free system like this does not exist elsewhere in the concierge market.
 
Rich Major, Chief Strategy Officer, See Tickets, comments:

"Ten Group is the only company of its type in the industry globally (across concierge, marketing offers, customer engagement and loyalty programmes) which is currently partnered with See Tickets and has already integrated our API into its proprietary online concierge platform to create a unique ticket booking experience."

In South Africa, we have an exclusive relationship with Computicket, the biggest ticket box office in the country, which allows us to purchase group allocations of tickets for the hottest concerts and events in South Africa on behalf of our members.
 
In China, we are negotiating our own inventory of seats within Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena and are in ongoing discussions with major venue owners across China. This will help us to guarantee access to tickets for our members to otherwise sold-out shows.
 
Ten Group’s International Head of Tickets, Lucy Chillingworth, says:

"It’s an exciting time for Ten and we have transitioned to become the world’s leading concierge provider of tickets. Our members are now at the front of the queue for every major event that takes place around the world."
