We’re “Flipping Out” about FlipTix!
We love when our clients turn an industry on its head. SMG-Los Angeles client FlipTix has done just that. For the first time ever, concert and sports venues can re-sell vacated seats to new event-goers. Last minute change of plans? No problem. FlipTix can help you offload your event tickets.
Here’s how it works:
- Download the FlipTix app.
- When you’re at a concert at a participating venue and you want to leave early (or have to because the babysitter bill is too high, the game is out of hand, or your just ready to go!) press the “Flip” button on the app.
- A Geo-targeted signal goes out to the surrounding area, and anyone who has FlipTix gets an alert that vacated seats are now available… at a steeply discounted fee!
It’s that simple. Great for the venue. Great for the fan. And this is just the start. CEO Jaime Siegel – a member of the Board of Trustees of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and an Intellectual Property lawyer says: “There’s going to be many opportunities for this kind of technology that we’re not even thinking of today.”
So keep your eyes open for more “Flips” coming your way!
