About Ticket Alternative
As music fans and avid concert-goers, the founders made it their mission to provide ticketing for events without the costly fees charged by the other major companies. Their venture into the ticketing industry began in 2003 with a well-known Atlanta based New Year's Eve party. By 2004, they 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 via its wholly-owned platform Freshtix. 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.

Ticket Alternative is also one of the largest sellers of event wristbands and custom printed tickets and provides contact center services to a wide range of clients via its in-house call center
