[UPDATE: View the SeatGeek Storify for a recap of the live Q&A]
When you want to find someone or something online, where do most of us go first? Google or Bing.
But where would you go if you wanted to search for tickets for an event, performer or even a specific venue? Sorting through all the venue specific sites isn’t that easy – let alone the majority are not built for mobile optimized viewing. That’s why SeatGeek was created.
SeatGeek describes itself as a ticket search engine that makes finding tickets to live entertainment a cinch. The SeatGeek platform searches some of the biggest ticket sites and presents the results all in one place. Sort of like Google search but focused on the live entertainment space.
What sites does SeatGeek search?
SeatGeek finds tickets for all kinds of performances: concerts, sports, Broadway, comedy shows, and more. It searches hundreds of websites with secondary market ticket listings including big, well-known sites like StubHub, eBay, and TicketsNow all the way down to very small, local broker sites.
Curious what the next wave of mobile search looks like for live entertainment? Then join us on Wednesday October 30th from 9-10pm ET on Twitter via #MobileChat as we do live Q/A with the team at SeatGeek. I promise, we’ll save you a seat.
