True Tickets' cutting-edge digital ticketing service seamlessly integrates into Pacific Northwest Ballet’s current ticketing platform, introducing a new era of patron engagement and ticketing security. Ticket holders will be able to effortlessly transfer tickets to friends and family, while the system will allow the venue to maintain control and minimize unauthorized resale.
Central to this partnership is the commitment to combat ticket fraud and scalping, especially during the holiday season when Pacific Northwest Ballet's production of The Nutcracker draws eager audiences. This state-of-the-art technology will play a pivotal role in helping protect patrons from ticket fraud, ensuring that fans of The Nutcracker can experience the holiday magic without worry.
Lia Chiarelli, PNB’s Chief Marketing and Advancement Officer shared, “Pacific Northwest Ballet’s partnership with True Tickets will improve the ticketing experience for our audience. Too often, audience members purchase tickets from third-party ticket resellers without realizing they’re not purchasing directly from PNB. They often pay inflated prices and receive subpar customer service. True Tickets’ technology offers a level of security and protection that has largely been out of reach for non-profit arts organizations until True Tickets.”
Ken Lesnik, Head of Business Development at True Tickets, expressed, "Collaborating with Pacific Northwest Ballet is a momentous occasion for True Tickets as we make our debut in Seattle. We are dedicated to revolutionizing the ticketing industry, and working alongside such a prestigious institution is an honor. We look forward to providing Pacific Northwest Ballet's audiences with an effortless and secure ticketing experience."
