Ticket Alternative - Company Profile
As music fans and avid concert-goers, Ticket Alternative Founders, Iain Bluett and Jamie Dwyer have made it their mission to provide ticketing for events without the costly fees charged by the other major companies. Iain and Jamie's venture into the ticketing industry began in 2003 with a well-known Atlanta New Year's Eve party. By 2004, Iain and Jamie had created Ticket Alternative with a fundamental strategy that if service fees were lowered then advance ticket sales would increase.
Atlanta-area venues quickly discovered the new ticketing solutions that could help attract new patrons and offer the current patrons a variety of ways to purchase their tickets. Today, Ticket Alternative tickets thousands of events and venues annually across the US. Based in Atlanta Georgia, Ticket Alternative can ticket almost every type of event, large or small including concerts, sporting events, theater productions, festivals, and parties. Clients set and typically retain 100 percent of the ticket price. Current clients also love that Ticket Alternative has a fully staffed call center available to assist patrons and venues. Tickets may also be purchased through multiple local retail ticket outlets such as Whole FOODS..
With a substantial social media following, large email databases, and full-time marketing support, Ticket Alternative promotes and markets events, festivals and venues across the country. Integration with 3rd party platforms like Facebook only serve to help clients sell more tickets, and give them more tools.
The company has made the Inc 5000 list of fastest growing private US companies every year since 2009 and is now a seven-time honoree.
Several high-profile recent signings in the Atlanta/Athens GA area include Atlanta Silverbacks, The Fox Theatre, The Classic Center, Atlanta Botanical Garden, and The State Theatre in the Washington D.C. area. TA client Minnesota United was recently awarded an MLS expansion slot and the company also handles ticketing for the Austin Aztex and New York Cosmos soccer teams.
Ticket Alternative is also one of the largest sellers of event wristbands and custom printed tickets with turn-around times that are hard to beat. Over 600,000 tickets are printed every month and the company supplies over 50 million wristbands to events annually.
In short, Ticket Alternative's range of services includes an in-house call center, box office software, local ticket outlets, advance ticket sales including subscriptions and season tickets, donation & fund development, event marketing, access control, and event staffing. In 2012 the company added ticketing software development.
