New Concert Event Calendar Enables Fans To Find The Best Ticket Deals
September 22, 2010 (New York, NY) â€“ SeatGeek, the leading ticket search engine, today announced a partnership with Consequence of Sound, an online music publication devoted to the ever growing and always-thriving worldwide music scene.
SeatGeek has developed an event calendar enabling Consequence of Sound (CoS) readers to find out when their favorite artists are playing and find the best tickets to those concerts. Using SeatGeekâ€™s powerful search and aggregation, the Events Calendar page displays available tickets from all major secondary markets, and provides intelligent forecasting information that helps fans quickly discover the best deals.
"In an era where early morning on-sale dates and insane surcharges have made ticket buying a despised activity, we felt SeatGeek offers something new and different,â€ said Alex Young, CoSâ€™s CEO. â€œIt puts the consumer in control."
â€œCoS is a leading online community of highly engaged music lovers,â€ said Nihar Singhal, SeatGeekâ€™s VP of Business Development. â€œWe are excited to partner with them and enhance their users experience through the addition of an Events Calendar.â€
SeatGeekâ€™s patent-pending ticket price forecasting algorithm allows fans to save time and money during their ticket buying experience.
