PRESS RELEASE: “SEATQUEST ANNOUNCES NEW VISUAL SEARCH ENGINE OFFERING LOW-TO-NO SERVICE FEES FOR EVENT TICKETS”
Chicago, IL (SeatQuest) November 19, 2010 – SeatQuest, Inc. (www.seatquest.com) today announced the launch of its new, low-to-no fees visual search engine for purchasing and comparing ticket prices. Ticket buyers tired of the high service fees associated with concert, theater, sporting event tickets and more, can breathe a sigh of relief thanks to SeatQuest’s low-to-no-fee offering and best-rate technology.
High service fees have long been a deep frustration for online ticket buyers. Unbeknownst to consumers, in addition to the fees seen at check-out, there are often additional fees ‘baked in’ to the price of every ticket bought that can inflate prices up to 50%.
“‘Behind the scenes,’ there exists a convoluted business model of online ticket marketplaces which are simply portals that connect sellers with buyers for a service fee which is then embedded into the price of the ticket,” states Nomik Eden, CEO, and founder, SeatQuest. “In these online markets, buyers are typically not aware that the same exact ticket is often available for sale across multiple sites. Only at SeatQuest will ticket buyers be able to view the competitive landscape of every ticket they are interested in for an easy, full-disclosure ticket-buying experience while significantly reducing or removing ticket service fees altogether.”
SeatQuest’s search engine puts an end to this time-consuming and pricey guessing game. Unlike any other online ticket marketplace, SeatQuest’s search engine is able to recognize when the exact same ticket from one seller is listed on multiple marketplaces. And because SeatQuest goes directly to most of these same ticket sellers but with a low-to-no fee offering, SeatQuest will most likely be selling the desired ticket at the best price.
SeatQuest offers ticket buyers a simple and intuitive online search and ticketing experience. An interactive map allows customers to compare seating location, prices, and at certain venues, a 3-D estimated view of their seat location via custom-built venue maps for each event. Searching and buying tickets on SeatQuest provides a winning combination of peace-of-mind, value and a graphically-stimulating experience.
Ticket buyers can also use SeatQuest’s one-of-a-kind search engine to find the cheapest tickets – regardless of seat location. In the instance that a ticket is not available on SeatQuest, the company will still provide its comparative tools and send the consumer to a seller who does have the desired ticket.
In celebration of SeatQuest’s new launch, SeatQuest is offering no ticket service fees for one year for consumers who register at SeatQuest.com using Facebook Connect before January 1, 2011. Buyers who opt out of registering through Facebook Connect will still have the opportunity to substantially save with access to SeatQuest’s 10% service fees.
SeatQuest is a visual search engine for event tickets that improves and streamlines the ticket buying experience for online consumers offering the lowest fees on the market. SeatQuest brings transparency to consumers and eliminates the confusion associated with extra service fees. Headquartered in Chicago, SeatQuest also offers a branded white-label solution of its front-end technology to web partners who have content relevant to sports, music, theater and other live events (i.e. online newspapers, travel search sites, music and sports blogs, etc).
