Transforming ticketing technology
We are delighted to announce that we have entered into partnership with insurtech company, TicketGuardian. The partnership enables TicketGuardian to engage more sports and entertainment venues with their ticket inventory control technology and provide fans with more options at the time of their ticket purchase.
TicketGuardian was founded in 2016 with the mission of transforming the live events industry and bringing it into the modern-age, providing more choices in an industry plagued with no refunds. The start-up brings innovative technology controls to partners in order to provide consumers with the opportunity to purchase insurance on their event tickets, should something prevent them from attending. The technology also works for registration-based events such as endurance events, camps and industry conferences.
“Teams, leagues and sanctioning bodies in North America, and globally, are always looking for ways to innovate and bring a better experience to their fans. TicketGuardian’s ability to provide an affordable solution for fans - that also works with the property’s ticketing platform for inventory management - sets them apart from the competition,” says CSM's Vice President of Business Development, Matt Wray.
TicketGuardian is working exclusively with CSM to generate sponsorships, increase brand awareness and grow their global reach. “Fans deserve the ability to protect their ticket purchases for the world’s greatest live events,” says Founder and CEO of TicketGuardian, Bryan Derbyshire. “By partnering with CSM, our belief is that the industry will realize just how urgently it needs to overhaul the ticket purchasing experience. For starters, it’s time to say goodbye to 'no refunds.'”
TicketGuardian has expanded their network extensively in 2018, highlighted by a partnership with the International Speedway Corporation to provide ticket insurance to customers across their 13 motorsports venues. The partnership included entitlement rights for the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway in Phoenix, Arizona in March of 2018.
“Working with CSM will help us to bring our industry-leading technology to more sport and entertainment venues across the country,” says Derbyshire. “And eventually the world.”
