TicketNetwork has teamed up with hyperlocal new platform Patch to bring competitively priced concert, sports, and theater tickets to millions of Patch users across the country.
The integration will provide Patch readers with a 10 percent discount to popular events in their area (via the “PatchTickets10” promo code*).
Patch’s platform allows users to post about and discover local events on its newsfeed and calendar. Through this partnership, Patch readers who find an event they wish to attend, can instantly purchase available tickets by clicking on the orange “Get Tickets” button on the homepage of their local Patch.
“Patch continues to scale and increase value for our users – both as a platform for small businesses to grow and for users to get great deals,” said Patch CEO, Warren St. John, in a release. “The TicketNetwork partnership brings thousands of local ticketed events, supporting small and large venues across the country, to our millions of users in a safe, money-back guarantee environment.”
TicketNetwork connects users to more than 100,000 concerts, sports and theater events worldwide. All tickets are listed by trusted sellers and are backed by TicketNetwork’s 100 percent money-back guarantee.
“Patch Tickets will help millions of Patch users choose from a wide variety of highly sought-after live event tickets inventory, with an easy to use and secure platform from which to purchase event tickets,” said TicketNetwork’s COO, Mike Honeyman, in a release. “In partnering with Patch, we are able to offer tickets for affordable and fun events right to the neighborhood of over 1,200 Patch communities across the nation.”
Patch and TicketNetwork have both seen the local events market grow over the past few years, recognizing that “locality” enhances the overall user experience.
As other local publications shut their doors, Patch continues to expand into communities including Birmingham, Alabama; Miami, Florida; and Charlotte, North Carolina. Patch also launched a new mobile app this year that helps readers follow the different communities they are tied to.
