NEW ERA TICKETS ENABLES EASY INTEGRATION WITH REDBOX KIOSKS
November 1, 2012, EXTON, PA - New Era Tickets, the solution-driven, full service ticketing subsidiary of Comcast-Spectacor, is now offering clients easy integration with the newly launched Redbox Tickets service.
“Redbox is partnering with the industry to give event venues the means to sell more inventory and the ability to promote local events by leveraging the massive retail footprint of Redbox kiosks, its powerful local marketing capability, as well as its broad consumer base,” said Mark Achler, SVP of New Business, Innovation and Strategy.
Through their New Era Tickets partnership, clients including Pocono Raceway have become early adopters of the Redbox Tickets™ channel. New Era Tickets is facilitating the launch of their ticketing clients by integrating technologies that automate ticket allocation and enable fans to print RedboxTickets™ at home.
"With the introduction of Redbox Tickets, we see Redbox becoming an effective channel for surplus ticket sales – a win for consumers, venues, and inventory owners," said Fred Maglione, President and CEO of New Era Tickets.
Redbox®, a Coinstar, Inc. brand, recently started selling event tickets at select Philadelphia-area kiosks and online -- bringing Philly consumers a whole new way to discover and purchase tickets to local live events and attractions. Consumers have the option to print their tickets at home, or in some cases, pick them up at the event venue. Ticket inventory in categories such as sporting events, concerts, cultural events, and family-friendly attractions will be added regularly.
