“The live entertainment sector is often slow to adopt the benefits of new technologies. It no longer makes sense to rely solely on paper tickets”
Tim Chambers, Tixserve
Tim Chambers said: “The live entertainment sector is often slow to adopt the benefits of new technologies. It no longer makes sense to rely solely on paper tickets – especially when you look at the tremendous capabilities of a secure Tixserve digital ticket. The future of ticketing must incorporate seamless digital distribution with mobile authentication, and enhanced consumer services including event timings, line-ups and biographies, location maps, and added value merchandise up-sale opportunities. Tixserve does all of this, and more.”
Co-founder and Managing Director of Tixserve, Patrick Kirby, said: “The Tixserve digital ticket fulfilment platform is a secure white label solution that can be used by existing ticket sellers to enhance the experience for ticket-purchasers, reduce costs and generate new revenue streams.
“Since our launch in 2017, we have successfully concluded a number of extensive private field trials with well-known venues and ticket agents in the United Kingdom and Ireland and we look forward to announcing details of commercial partnerships with these clients very soon. Tim Chambers brings a rich international experience and will help to steer the company as we target large global opportunities in the live event ticketing industry.”Music Business Worldwide
