Big happenings are afoot in the event ticketing industry! Just a little over a month ago a rather monumental acquisition took place; San Francisco-based company, Ticketfly, bought Vancouver owned and operated company, Northern Tickets, for an undisclosed amount. Prior to this acquisition, Northern Tickets was the in-house ticketing organization for the MRG Group, which has affiliations with such prestigious establishments and events as the Vogue Theatre and the Vancouver International Jazz Festival.

This is our third instalment in a review of online ticketing systems. So far we’ve taken a look at Eventbrite and Brown Paper Tickets. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at Vendini’s all-in-one solution, as well as a few key points to ponder when considering this particular ticketing system.
On February 24th, the U.K. Government took important steps towards protecting the rights of consumers wishing to purchase event tickets through secondary ticketing markets, such as StubHub, Viagogo and Seatwave. In the hopes of protecting fans from fraud (and discouraging scalpers from buying tickets in bulk) the House of Lords and House of Commons have come to an agreement for a ticket re-sale policy amendments made to the consumer rights bill tabled by Conservative peer, Lord Moynihan.
If you’ve been following along with our blog, you might remember a few of our posts from July of last year regarding the much-debated Ticketmaster.com Class Action Settlement, Curt Schlesinger et al. v. Ticketmaster. If not, here are links to our previous posts covering this important ticketing concern:
- What You Need to Know About the Ticketmaster.com Class Action Settlement
- Number Crunching: Who’s the Real Winner in the Ticketmaster.com Class Action Settlement?
We thought that it was about time to check in on the settlement and see how the case is progressing. The final approval hearing was scheduled for January 13, 2015 at the Los Angeles Superior Court; however, Judge Kenneth R. Freeman did not rule on the settlement. As far as we can tell, this was a rather unexpected turn of events as it was expected that this hearing would mark the end of this long and tedious settlement.
As we previously mentioned, choosing an online ticketing platform can be a difficult task. Finding the right fit for your community or high school theater means knowing exactly what you need (and don’t need), and finding this within your target price-range. It’s also especially important to look at the needs of your customers, and find a solution that will help them purchase more tickets to your fabulous events.
Up next in our online ticketing system series is Brown Paper Tickets. This company has a history spanning over a decade and originally came into being as a response to the exorbitant processing and service fees charged by Ticketmaster. Actually, in an interview with Seattle Business Mag Brown Paper Ticketing CEO, Steve Butcher, mentioned that the 2009 merger between Ticketmaster and Live Nation helped to shape and mold BPT into the company that it is today – a company focused on providing a ticketing option with lower processing fees.
