POGOSEAT AND FUTURETIX CONNECT!
 
FutureTix will work with Pogoseat to bring
in-event seat upgrades to venues!

 
Selden, NY –April 22, 2013 – Mobile In-Event Seat Upgrades

FutureTix and Pogoseat have aligned to deliver a state-of-the-art mobile seat upgrade platform. Pogoseat provides venues with the ability to offer seat upgrades at live events allowing patrons to optimize their live entertainment experience. This fan-friendly mobile app serves as an additional revenue source for venues while empowering the consumer and heightening their experience.

Pogoseat’s self-serve, mobile-ticketing software gives patrons the freedom to log in, search and dynamically upgrade their seats during a sports game, concert or any live entertainment event. Pogoseat provides a platform for venues to manage their inventory and fan engagement, while helping venues monetize their otherwise unused seating inventory.

FutureTix will play an advisory role assisting with enhanced product development, integrations and industry relationships.

“We are excited about the opportunity to work with Pogoseat” said Dan DeMato, President of FutureTix. “The concept of empowering the fan to relocate into a seat that is more desirable to them on the day-of-event creates a win-win situation. The potential is limitless, as venues would also be able to offer backstage access, stadium club passes or meet and greet opportunities directly to the fans as they sit in their seats and at a time when they are most engaged in all of the excitement and action”.

Fans attending live events currently have no way to easily and economically upgrade to better seats during the event. There are many compelling reasons for fans to move: bad weather, view obstructions, to get closer to the action, to sit next to friends at the event, and/or to impress a client, date, or family members. Pogoseat solves this problem while also collecting data and filling in closer unsold seats.

“The goals of Pogoseat and FutureTix directly align” said Evan Owens, CEO, Pogoseat, “We both aim to provide our clients with the ability to improve the live event experience for their fans and to generate extra revenue. We see this partnership as a perfect fit; Dan’s experience and knowledge of the ticketing industry will be invaluable in helping us improve our service and develop relationships with sports teams and live entertainment venues.”

“With mobile being such an integral part of the in-venue experience,” says Kevin Cote, Director of Digital Marketing for the Golden State Warriors,Pogoseat has given us the ability to improve that experience for fans by meeting and exceeding their expectations.”
