When Minnesota’s 94-year-old anti-scalping law was finally erased earlier this month, the change made Minneapolis the perfect new headquarters for Ticket King, a move the company just finalized.

Co-owner Brian Obert, said the move opened up a great opportunity for his company and their customers because much of the company’s business was already geared toward resident of the Land of 10,000 Lakes. . .

“The change in the law will help the self image of brokers,” Obert said. “It also might help fans by broadening the resale market for tickets to games and concerts.”

Since 1991, Ticket King had done business just across the Minnesota-Wisconsin border in Hudson, WI. “We are very excited about being able to operate out of Minneapolis. It is an opportunity for us to do business face-to-face with Customers. In the past we would have to drive out to Hudson everyday.”

Furthering the industry’s legitimacy is the key. “The law removes the stigma involved with people using our service. It’s a great location and we look forward serving the people of Minneapolis,” Obert said.
Minnesota joins New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania as some of the state that recently changed their long-standing laws against ticket reselling.
