This is a good week for me as a transplanted Chicagoan. Over the weekend I had the Air & Water Show to watch, which is free as long as you’re willing to deal with some crowds. And today the Yankees come into town for a three-game set with the White Sox. I’m going to go to at least one of the games, and that means I’ll try to get a deal on tickets through StubHub at the last minute. I’ve found that no matter how you try to buy tickets for a major event, it’s always kind of a headache. The interfaces to pick seats are terrible, you get slapped with all kinds of fees, and sometimes the tickets disappear before you can buy them. ShowClix is a Pittsburgh, PA based company that provides “simply (fair) ticketing.” They’re aiming to make the ticketing experience better for both the people putting on the events and the people attending them. They may not be an option for this week’s Yankees games, but they are “the preferred ticketing solution for thousands of performing arts theatres, live music venues, and festivals — as well as museums, non-profit fundraisers, nightclubs, even circuses and rodeos.”
Right now ShowClix has 305,190,046 tickets available for 134,945 events. It’s not surprising that they’ve grown to this size in only five years. When customers on both sides of the ticket hate the market leaders, there’s a huge opportunity for competitors. ShowClix has grabbed this opportunity by offering a platform that is easy to use paired with stellar customer service. Beyond that they offer tools to help venues and event promoters market their events and improve their sales process through analytics and social media. They may never be the ticketing solution for Major League Baseball or massive concert tours, but they have found a market with plenty of growth potential. If you want to help the growth continue, take a look at ShowClix’s Jobs page. Right now they have some great opportunities available for new or recent grads:
If you want to work on the ticketing side of events, it’d be hard to find a better place to get started than ShowClix.
