PRESS RELEASE: “TICKETLEAP LAUNCHES NEW PLATFORM, BRINGS FREE TICKETING TO SMALL EVENTS”

PHILADELPHIA, PA (TicketLeap) August 4, 2010 – By developing a new ticketing platform that’s deeply integrated with Facebook and Twitter, TicketLeap makes it easier than ever for event organizers to sell tickets online and market their events, and for select small events the new platform is free to use.

A leader in online ticketing and event registration, TicketLeap has developed a revolutionary new platform that’s social, quick and intuitive.

“The new platform is designed to help event organizers have better events, get a personal connection with their attendees when they buy tickets, and, most importantly, sell more tickets,” says Chris Stanchak, CEO of TicketLeap.

Event organizers can create an account and import events through Facebook, while attendees can start a conversation on an event page via Facebook or Twitter. As a result, event organizers get to know their attendees before they step in the door. Additional features of the platform include in-depth reporting, customizable event templates and receiving sales via PayPal.

While the new platform is innovative, so is the opportunity the company is offering small event organizers. TicketLeap established a new financial incentive for small event organizers that sell fewer than 100 tickets per month by letting them use it for free. There are no per ticket fees for the event organizer or the attendee within this account package.

“It’s never been easier to sell tickets to an event. By offering this free service, we take the risk out of starting a new event,” says Stanchak. “We all need a little extra support when getting started, and small events are no different. In our business model, the only way we succeed is if they succeed. If we give them some extra help with the first step, our hope is that they can grow more – and become a loyal client in the future.”
